    Abductions or Attempted Abductions Involving Schools

    Because we've talked so often about the possibility of someone other than TH abducting Kyron from school, or whether or not the school's arrangements and activities that day were conducive to someone snatching him, I thought I'd open a thread to look at other cases.

    How many cases of children being snatched from school, or school grounds, buses, once they get off the bus at the bus stop, or walking to/from school in normally "safe" areas have happened? Will looking at them provide any insights into other potential crimes other than Kyron leaving w/TH?

    Discuss!

    Scotty Baker

    In the early 1990s, his stepmother's friend disguised herself as the boy's "cousin", and he was allowed to be signed out of school by her. Stepmother later murdered him.

    I need to go find the link.

    ETA: http://www.people.com/people/archive...104652,00.html

    The story doesn't give any details about the security at the school, but there is this:

    Donnie Baker and Ruth Baker [Scotty's bioparents] are suing the board of education for $12 million for releasing Scotty in Susanne Baker's custody.

    I've been hovering around waiting for gliving to get back online. So far, she hasn't.

    So, since I opened the thread, I'm going to share this excellent resource she found and sent to me, with big big thanks:

    "The search for second-grader Kyron Horman, missing from Portlandís Skyline School, reminds Gresham residents of a similar long nightís search on brushy Gresham Butte 32 years ago for Stacie Wilmoth, a second-grader who vanished from West Gresham School on April 26, 1978.
    In Stacieís case, she was lured to a car by a stranger who met her in the hall at West Gresham as she was headed to the restroom. The man, tall and brown-haired, told her he had some things in his car and that the school principal said she could help."

    Hey Raeann, I see you were posting that link just as I explained where I'd gotten it.

    Interesting, isn't it? Kid in school, headed to bathroom, snatched. And apparently on a "normal" school day, not even a high-activity, more open day like a science fair.

    Schools

    The first one which comes to mind (and perhaps the most recent) is the abduction & subsequent murder of Tori Stafford.

    The abduction allegedly occurred as school was being let out for the day.

    Where is Jean Paul Lacombe? A desperate search continues for 10-year-old Jean Paul Lacombe. He was kidnapped by his father, Juan Felipe Lacombe Vega, who lied and forged paperwork to appear as if he had legal custody of his son. A video showing the October 16, 2009 abduction has circulated the web and caused great distress for those who’ve witnessed it. Now, questions are being asked of the Texas authorities as to how they could have let this happen. Jean Paul Lacombe was beyond distraught when authorities removed him, crying in a state of panic and telling the police that he did not want to go with his father.
    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Love never fails.

    I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

    1. A young girl in grade school in or near Portland, who was lured from her elemetary school by a stranger/pedophile. She was raped,beaten and left for dead. A passer by found her. This was 32 years ago. It was discussed here on Kyron's forum.

    2. Etan Patz, aged 5, was lured by his babysitter's boyfriend, who was a pedophile. Etan was going to his school bus alone for the first time, and the pedo was waiting for him in his car. This was in 1979 in Manhattan. Lots of people around ; no one ever remembered seeing Etan getting in the guy's car... Etan was never seen alive again.

    3. Ashley Pond and Miranda Gaddis of Oregon City, were both lured from their school bus stop. On seperate occasions, but by the same killer, his house was very close to the bus stop...

    4. Sommer Thompson, aged 7, was lured and killed by an unregistered sex offender,as she walked home from school. She had ran ahead a few blocks from her siblings ; she was not far from her school ....

    5. A cold case I read about, sorry, do not know the little girls name. She was abducted after she got off her school bus and never seen again... There were reports of a van idling by the bus. It was before the days of cameras on schoolbuses...

    Ad,I'm sure, there are lots of others....

    IMO, just like Willie Sutton said that he robbed banks because " that's where the money is " , so do pedophiles troll in and around schools,because that's where the kids are....
