    When motherhood becomes victimhood
    FRANK MICHEL | February 18, 2001

    Lawrence Edward Wells III cooked his mother dinner, wished her goodbye and told her to wait up because he was going to bring her back some cranberry muffins. Lee Wells never saw him again after that simple farewell on the evening of Sept. 28, 1992.

    A week later, Wells and her husband found her 29-year-old son's car near downtown. His body has never been found, and the man suspected of killing her son in a dispute over money has never been brought to justice for it and remains on the lam from other felony convictions

    His mother passed away in 2011.

    I see a resemblence and Wells would be 49 now, which fits. Circumstances seem off but after these amazing few days in Cleveland, he very well could have been hiding for his life these past 20 years. It doesn't appear that his mother submitted any DNA samples before her death, though.

    Hopefully his Dad, sibling or other family member will step forward and submit a sample. Or maybe there will be a fingerprint comparison? Looking forward to the ME's result.

    One would think that being an advocate for murdered children, submitting DNA would have been a priority. I do see he has 4 aunts in the obituary. No mention of siblings. I wonder if LEW II is still living.

    Heard that fingerprints were not a match.
