"Justice For Shelby" Mom Thanks Supporters

Posted: Updated:

When we first met Angie Harmon, she was wearing a purple ribbon on her jacket and a purple streak in her hair to show she is against domestic violence and in memory of her daughter.

Harmon said she was suspicious about her daughter's boyfriend from the start. She claimed that Shelton Fulgham was a controlling man, down to the very things her used to clean the house.

"I told her that these are signs that something is not right and deep down I think she loved him and she believed what he said. But I believe he manipulated her, Harmon said.

Harmon said that during his initial appearance on felony vehicular homicide charges, Fulgham would not look at her as his charges were read.

"I am so sorry that he ruined my child's life but he also ruined his and he ruined everyone else's lives including his family's and Shelby and it is just a waste. He is so young and he has just given up his whole life. He is 23 years old and he faces jail for the rest of his life. It is really sad for both families," Harmon said.

As of now there are more than 26,000 people following a Facebook page called "Justice For Shelby." Shelby's mom wanted to say thank you to those who have shown support for her family on the page.

"Keep it going. Keep her story alive because it brings awareness to domestic violence. Which happens to so many women and men out there and they are too ashamed to speak about it and they thing the authorities won't do anything about it and it needs to be brought to light," Harmon said.
