  • Shutting that door: In a response to the Charlotte Observer, Saundra Adams was receptive to Carruth's apology but not his offer. "I can say definitively he’s not ever going to have custody of Chancellor. Chancellor will be raised either by me or, after I'm gone, by someone else who loves him and who knows him. He will never be raised by a stranger—someone he doesn't know and who tried to kill him."
  • Tough words: Carruth had some harsh words for Saundra Adams, too, accusing her in the letter of lying. CBS Sports flags this excerpt: "Ms. Adams, the story of how you lost your daughter; how Chancellor came into this world; and the way that he has gone on to endure, thrive, and over achieve with you by his side is so heart wrenching and inspiring on its own, that there isn't any need for embellishment or lies. And yet you've made a habit out of doing so in every interview that you've given."
  • Deep reading: Sports Illustrated took a deep dive into the story in a 2012 article titled, "The Boy They Couldn't Kill: How Rae Carruth's son survived and thrives." It details, among other things, Carruth's thorny relationship with pregnant women before he met Cherica Adams.
