Vickie - 2018-07-05 6:28 PM Does anyone know why? Who is this person who killed him?
Add got into some trouble during his life. Please be respectful to the family at this time. The relationship with this woman that shot him as not been fully released nor her actual motive for killing him. I assume it'll come out over time but at the moment lets just be respectful. Prayers for the family and may be finally be at peace.

I didn't really know Add but I had met him a few times. Know nothing about his personal life. Good or bad. As for a cowboy, he was terrific. I always kept an eye on him as he was pretty much the biggest guy riding against the smaller hands.
Myself being bigger than most of my competitors I had a built in admiration for Add. He didn't weigh a lot more than many of them but he was taller than anyone I remember. At 6'3" I towered over most of the barrel racers. I'm not much taller than Add was. He was around 6'.
He didn't let his height get the horse off balance. That's an art in itself. I'm sure his family and friends are suffering a terrible personal loss.

Hey Yall... My name is Brittany, I am "Lil Add's" fiance. I just want to say thank you for everyone's kind words and prayers. These last few months have been really hard. Seeing that so many people cared about him has meant a lot to us. If any of yall have facebook, I have started a page where we can all share memories and pictures. I also try to update everything that is going on with the case... We would greatly appreciate any and everyone that would be apart of it. Thanks again for all the support and love! <3

I have been hesitant on making this post for a while for many of reasons, but it time to stop playing nice and get things done. First off, let me say that y'all have been amazing to our family during this tragic time in our lives and we can't thank y'all enough for that. But we need some help from y'all... I have tried to do everything I can from 16 hours away and keeping up with everything back in Oklahoma, but there is a lot I am limited to. Over the last 6 months I have worked endlessly on every possible aspect of Waddell being taking away from us. Hearing stories of how his possessions have been sold for next to nothing, "certain" people having things in their possession, and seeing his things being sold on for sale and wanted sites on facebook has seriously been heartbreaking. I know that we will not get a lot of things back, but this is my attempt to recover something/anything... The Sheriff's Dept. did recover a good bit of trophy saddles and some tack. We have what they recovered, some things that were left in his home, his truck, and (empty)horse trailer. If you have purchased, know someone who has purchased, or know where something is please, please, please let me know. I'm not here to call anyone out, or start any trouble. We just want his belongings and will buy it back if need be. Some of the things that are still "missing" are... his necklace with a ring on it, wallet, all of his riding saddles, trophy saddles, all most all of his horse tack, and cowboy hats just to name a few... His home was completely ransacked, and everything he has worked his whole life was gone. We don't know many people in Oklahoma nor in the Horse World so all I can do at this point is ask for help... Big or small it all is appreciated. Any information can be sent to my personal facebook page, Waddell Quarter Horse Page, or you can contact me directly on my cell at 843-287-1721. Please share and help us locate and recover his personal belongings. Thanks from the bottom of my heart for everything y'all have done and continue to do! -Brittany

Another whack job with a gun. More senseless tradedy...
Senseless tragedy, yes... dont try to bring up the anti gun rhetoric on this post. The person who used a gun is 100% to blame. A "whackjob" wouldn't have let the fact they didnt have access to a firearm stop them from committing this heinous crime, or any crime for that matter.
