I thought of a young co-worker I had a few years back who was out with his wife and brother and sister-in-law one night in Buckhead. At a stoplight some guys thumped on his hood, and he made the mistake of saying something. He came in to work the next Monday beaten 7 ways to Sunday. He and his brother both were hospitalized... yet the assault never made the news, here. This kid, Daniel, is only 5'8" and very slight, 120 lbs. If he was caught out in the wrong place at the wrong time in the dark around a Buckhead-area bar, the supposedly high-toned location would have made no difference. Then again, Daniel did just have a break-up in the news story I read. I know I had one of those in college that nearly made me disappear. Here's praying that's all he did, for a bit.

Is there a river that runs through Alanta? Because this seems to similiar to the other stories.
Last seen in a bar.
Connected to a college.
No one sees anything.
And usually there is a river nearby.
This guy seems to think that it is just happening in one area, but it isn't. It seems to be the central and eastern part of the country.

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?

A 21-year-old Georgia Tech student who had been missing for two weeks was found dead Saturday in Lamar County.
Authorities identified a body found in a car on a rural road in northern Lamar as that of Daniel J. Compton.
The Lamar Sheriff's Department and Atlanta police are awaiting word on a cause of death from the Lamar County Coroner's Office, but authorities do not suspect foul play in his death.
