He said he did it out of grief and guilt, and a feeling that it is his fault his son is dead.

“I’ll spend the rest of my days on this earth racking my brain trying to figure out what I should have done differently,” he said.

Stollings said he hopes sharing his son’s story can change other people’s lives.

His son, Jeramie Ratliff, leaves behind a 10-month-old son.
