    Whoa! Thank goodness gram and mom kept their heads. That is one seriously frightening guy.

    All I could find on him is his middle initial is "D" and that as of 2011 he lived in Tacoma, Washington serving in the Air Force. At some point he lived in Florida at Hulmburt. Then a few places in Maine. I didn't want to link as I found info from an obituary. Other than that nada.

    The Maine Supreme Judicial Court on Thursday rejected an appeal by a New Hampshire man who claimed he shouldn’t have been convicted of trying to kidnap a boy from his grandmother’s arms in a Bowdoinham park-and-ride lot because he suffered from a mental abnormality...

    At trial, psychologist Elise Magnuson testified that she felt Graham had suffered a psychotic break caused by family issues and his experience serving in the Air Force, according to court records.
