Both eyewitness reports and testimony in court have revealed that after leaving the Skinful Halloween party, Froehlich darted into the middle of Folly Road at the same time Fisher, who was leaving a different party on Folly Beach drove by.

Update October 25: Lots of attention has been turned toward the organizers of Skinful Halloween after a pedestrian was struck by a drunken driver outside of the party, but for the majority of other attendees of Saturday's event the general consensus was that is was one helluva good time.

There will be six stages set up for live music, a zip line, urban wakeboarding, burlesque dancers, jump castles, a mechanical bull, circus acts, a hay ride and mind blowing lights and lazer shows.

If you purchase your tickets before October 12th, you'll score the early bird prices of $40 for general admission and $80 for VIP. VIPs will have access to a private lounge, private DJ and open bar. That's what's up.
