          “Every time Aundrea came to pick us up, she was at some level of intoxication,” Regan claims. “Every single time I was at Rachel’s house, Aundrea was drunk. I’ve seen Aundrea pass out drunk, begging for her car keys drunk, and screaming at her dad drunk.”

          She claims Aundrea’s behavior has taken a toll on her friend. “Rachel became really depressed in high school,” she says. “There are so many nights that Rachel came and stayed over at my house because she just couldn’t deal with her mom any longer.”
