Stolen Cadillac CTS-V

Chris Netterville of College Station, Texas was crushed when he found out his Cadillac CTS-V had been stolen and crashed

The Black Diamond Edition Cadillac CTS-V was a rolling memorial to Chris Netterville’s close friend who passed away a short time ago due to a pre-existing heart condition.

His friend, Brandon owned an automotive body and repair shop in town and also owned the exact same Cadillac CTS-V and Chris fell in love with it.  It wasn’t long after Brandon took him for a test drive in the CTS-V that Chris set out on a mission to work and save up for his very own CTS-V.

Man, you gotta take me in a test drive in this car. I love it.’ He let me test drive it, and that second I knew it was my dream car. I knew what I wanted

Brandon always encouraged Chris to work hard for what you want and six year ago at the age of 19, Chris finally bought his dream car.

I saved up enough money to buy the car. He respected me for that, and I’ve always looked up to him for that. That’s why I wanted to keep that car as a memory for him.

Sadly, that all came to an end early Sunday morning when Netterville went outside his home to find the CTS-V was gone.  Some distance away, 20-year old Curtis Owens, Jr. was arrested for stealing Netterville’s Cadillac and crashing it into another vehicle on the road.

“It’s heartbreaking man,” Netterville said. “I worked my butt off for it in high school and saved up as much money as I could and bought my dream car, and it just sucks to see something you worked for so hard gone in seconds.”

“I told his family I wanted to keep that car as a memorial of him because we had the same car. We both loved our Cadillacs man,” Netterville said. “And now it’s gone, and now I can’t keep it. It’s more than a car.”

Hopefully Chris will own another Cadillac CTS-V one day and continue to keep the memory of his close friend alive.
