Many knew Daniel was a troubled boy, but no one stepped in to help. Now it's too late.

1/17/2004

EDITOR'S NOTE -- There were national headlines last fall when a Connecticut jury blamed Judy Scruggs for her son's suicide following testimony that she kept a horribly messy house. But a close examination of the case by The Associated Press found that others involved in the boy's life failed him, and that there is much blame to go around.

i become completely and utterly unable to continue my thoughts every time i run across this case. i keep a picture of daniel scruggs in my pictures folder, and i have prayed for him several times. i tell him that i will be his friend.
(since no one else would) i hate this world. i absolutely hate it.there is no reason for this to have happened.

This is such a sad story. If ONE person had really cared and took the time to try and reach this young man he might be alive today. I cry everytime I read about this.

Duh. That's all I can say. Reality check, anyone?
