The drunk driving teen who killed four people but was spared jail because he was too rich to know any better, regularly had wild, booze-fuelled parties in his OWN mansion, claims one of the troubled teenager’s friends.
Ethan Couch, 16, was three times over the limit and high on Valium when he mounted a curb in Burleson, Texas earlier this year and plowed into a broken down car, taking four lives and injuring more.
And MailOnline can reveal the horror crash happened just a few hundred yards from a sprawling property where Couch boasted he was allowed to live alone and unsupervised.
His father Frederick Couch is a wealthy businessman, who owns a metal works, Cleburne Sheet Metal, with an estimated yearly turnover of $15 million and around 30 staff.
After a difficult divorce from Ethan’s mother Tonya, he apparently gave his son the huge single story property.
Couch was also allegedly given his own car when he was just 13 and was driving a powerful truck owned by his dad’s company on the night of the accident.
And now MailOnline can reveal the true extent of his wealthy existence, which ultimately led to the deaths of Youth pastor Brian Jennings, mother and daughter Hollie and Shelby Boyles and 24-year-old Breanna Mitchell.
Teenager Anthony Lamanna was invited to a party at ‘Couch’s house’ just three days before the accident. He had never met the teenager before and was stunned by what he saw.
