Wade’s estranged wife had promised to make sure he had food and water in the trailer where he lived after she moved out. Instead, she left him alone there with his two dogs, without food or running water, and without a phone to call for help, and spent his Social Security checks. Wade’s body was found months later alongside the bodies of the dogs. His cause of death is undetermined, but homicide charges are possible.
