    Hope this works right, as its my first time posting. FBI was on site Tuesday, and back again today. Local news featured a phone interview with mom this morning.

    How sad. I hope his mother can get some answers, after all this time.
    Was the aunt ruled out as a suspect? I've never heard about this little boy's case until now.

    Possibly the most ridiculous question ever asked by an attorney in court: "So if somebody's not alive you can't get any information from them?" JW

    What is strange about this is that the aunt had custody and the mother is now being interviewed about it. Where is the aunt now? Why did the mother (or father) not maintain custody?
    Eternally optimistic!

    I just did a google search on the dad's name. Do it yourself. He's got a handful of mugshots in Florida. One of the charges is especially interesting.
