    A new car clue.


    I just have one question. They said the boy could have been missing since as early as Wednesday but was not reported until Friday.

    Wouldn't the mother and the sitter be under suspicion if that were true? I've only read that the mother was question nothing about the sitter.
    Life ain't always beautiful, but it's a beautiful ride.

    My opinion!

    18 March 08

    DOGS have uncovered human remains, believed to be those of a toddler missing since 2003, at a house in Victoria.

    Daniel Thomas, 2, went missing after being left with a babysitter.

    Daniel's father Kevin Ruffels, a taxi driver, said today he was shattered by the discovery.

    He said police rang him this morning saying a child's bones had been found by a dog at a house in Myrtleford once rented by the boy's mother.

    Dead Myrtleford toddler confirmed as Daniel Thomas
    The Australian
    HUMAN remains found buried in the backyard of a house in northeast Victoria have been confirmed as those of missing toddler Daniel Thomas.
    The remains, which were found at Myrtleford in March, underwent extensive DNA testing at the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine to confirm their identity. The next of kin have been notified.

    Texas at the moment :)
    So what would this mean? the babysitter buried him and no one realized a burial spot in the backyard? Or did the parents take him from the babysitter while she was 'not watching him' ... and kill him.

    Only my opinion, no one else need agree.

    Sounds like a case of abuse to me snipped and snipped from http://www.theage.com.au/articles/20...631500701.html

    Homicide detectives believe missing toddler Daniel Thomas was abducted from the house of his babysitter, who left him alone for three hours last Friday afternoon when he went missing.

    Detective Senior Sergeant Rowland Legg said yesterday it was unlikely the sick two-year-old could have wandered from the house in Myrtleford, in north-eastern Victoria.

    Daniel, an asthmatic, was wearing heavy bandages to cover severe eczema when last seen at the house in Standish Street.

    Senior Sergeant Legg said that the babysitter had told police she left Daniel for three hours to keep a doctor's appointment in nearby Wangaratta.
    Senior Sergeant Legg said the babysitter had told police Daniel had been left alone in the house.

    Daniel's age and poor health were other reasons police suspected foul play, he said.

    Daniel is described as Aboriginal in appearance with dark hair, and was wearing a bandage on his forehead.
    And snipped from here


    Detective Senior Sergeant Roland Legg said the brief to the coroner would include allegations the child was tortured.
    And if you look at the photo of that link above you will see that the child did not look right.

    Someone was abusing that child may he rest in peace

    The family of a two-year-old found buried beneath a house might finally get some answers when a Victorian coroner delivers a finding on Thursday....

    Last year's inquest into the mystery featured plenty of finger-pointing as sensational accusations flew at both his mother, Donna Thomas, and babysitter, Mandy Martyn...

    The Wangaratta inquest also heard claims Daniel suffered abuse at the hands of both Ms Thomas and Ms Martin...
