    TX - Jonathan Singer, 10, found dead in box in parents' SUV, April 2011

    http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?se...rticle-XXXXXXX

    Pasadena police say the full body of 10-year-old Jonathan Singer was packed in a box that was found in the back of the couple's sports utility vehicle in west Houston.

    Officials said the boy had cerebral palsy and weighed about 35-40 pounds.

    Father of the boy drove his body to his grandfather's home, something was said to the grandfather who then alerted police!

    Prosecutors say Jonathan drowned after his 46-year-old father, Jeffrey Singer, left him alone in a bathtub.

    They found him last April but it was just determined to be a homicide last week?
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Kind of odd. The article says the father left the boy alone in the bath, but the mother has been charged with murder. Very strange.

    Thread: Most interesting classic unsolved murder cases

    This thread currently has over 350 cases with a brief synopsis of each and we are still adding additional cases.

    You can access a spreadsheet that lists the cases in alphabetical order with the page & post number so that you can locate a particular case you may be interested in. It also contains links to any cases that already have a thread on WS.

    Many cases do not have a thread. Please feel free to start one in the appropriate forum if you would like to look into one. Should you start a thread on one of these cases, please let me know so that I can add the link to the spreadsheet.

    Here is the link for the spreadsheet in alphabetical order:

    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    That had to be an error that said his body was found last April, Surely they meant last Sunday or something like that? Can anyone clear this up?

    Wow, that picture of the mom is scary. But I didn't see the one of the dad (maybe because it was the mobile site I visited?).

    Wonder how old the other kids are and their condition.

    RIP Jonathan

    Still awaiting trial for injury to a child. In 2014, Jeffrey Singer was charged with "MISAPP/FIDUC/FINAN 100K-200K" and is also awaiting trial for that. He had a competency exam earlier this year and was found competent.

    Tina Madrid is also still awaiting trial for injury to a child. Murder charge was dropped.
