    PA - Korbin Rager, 9, dies of oxycodone OD, Northumberland, 13 Oct 2014 *Arrests*



    http://www.dailyitem.com/news/death-...5091a45b4.html

    Six months after the death of 9-year-old Korbin Rager, Montour County coroner Scott Lynn ruled it a homicide and, on Monday, Point Township police filed six additional charges against Victor Hare for his role in the boy’s death.

    Hare... faces additional charges of involuntary manslaughter and drug delivery resulting in Rager’s death... Other charges include aggravated assault, two counts of endangering the welfare of children, indecent assault and two counts of recklessly endangering another person...

    Investigators received the autopsy report and death certificate for Rager, and it indicated that the cause of his death was "oxycodone toxicity" and "homicide." The oxycodone levels were reported at 1,200 ng/ml... Police said, "This places the oxycodone level in the victim’s blood at 12 times the maximum therapeutic range"...

    A cut straw was recovered from the crime scene, the police report said. The cut straw is "consistent drug paraphernalia used to abuse and snort drugs." The straw had oxycodone residue on the inside and had DNA matching Hare and Rager, police said. A "ped" egg and pill crusher at the crime scene had oxycodone within... Further, a penile swab taken during Rager’s autopsy had DNA from the defendant, police added.

    Township police said when they arrived at Hare's home on Springhouse Road about 8 a.m. that day they found Rager's 13-year-old half-brother crying on the front porch. In a bedroom they said they discovered Rager with blood coming from his mouth and nose. He had vomited, they said.

    Hare had picked up the boys from their mother the night before with plans to ride dune buggies, arrest documents state...

    A similar incident occurred earlier this summer when Rager became ill and had "stuff" coming out his nose, the half-brother told police, according to the arrest affidavit.

    Hare, a convicted felon, has been accused in nine separate cases between 1974 and 1985, cases that included exposing himself to a 7-year-old boy while in bed, supplying alcohol to teenagers, corruption of minors and several criminal incidents with juvenile accomplices...

    Point Township police say Angela Clark, who now faces two felony counts of endangering the welfare of children, was well aware of the kind of man Hare was... Numerous witnesses — including Korbin’s half-brother — provided written statements and reports to investigators that Clark had firsthand knowledge of Hare’s drug problem, details about the home environment not being suitable for children and warnings from friends and family not to leave the children in his care.

    Sources close to the family say Hare often took Clark and the boys on expensive trips, including Walt Disney World in Florida or the Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos. He would buy them gifts, the most recent being bicycles. Police say Clark would punish Hare when she learned he was taking drugs in front of the boys by not allowing him to see Korbin and his half-brother, but would change her mind when she needed money or help.

    The mother should be arrested as well.

    You know, in a lot of the cases I read about here, I can feel some compassion for the parents. In so many of the cases, there is obvious mental illness, obvious deeper issues, clear attempts to seek help.

    But this? What excuse can there possibly be for supplying drugs to a child, then molesting him? Especially when the little boys had overdosed before.

    It's pure criminal. This isn't an issue of mental illness, this isn't an issue of losing ones temper and things going too far. This isn't even an issue of addiction. This is evil in a way that I rarely see here.

    Maybe mom has a drug problem, too. Pimped out her kids to keep herself in money and dope. Not all parents love unconditionally.

    I recall reading about this case in the MSM when it happened. I must say I am shocked that the mother has not been charged in this case, as well. She probably made a deal, I guess.

    Angela Clark, 31, of Sunbury, pleaded guilty Friday in Northumberland County court to two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. She is free on unsecured bail pending sentencing Sept. 28...

    Clark is looking at seven years' supervision, with a judge deciding how much of that will be jail time, Targonski said.

    She admitted allowing Victor W. Hare III, a former relative through marriage, to watch her son Korbin Rager and his half-brother in his Point Twp. home despite knowing he was a convicted felon and had a drug and alcohol problem.

    A man charged in connection with the death of a 9 year-old boy will be able to hire a pathologist and a forensics expert at the county’s expense...

    Judge Charles Saylor told Hare’s attorney she could hire each one at $2,500 apiece.
