    Man Killed in L.A. Hostage Standoff Was 2004 Murder Suspect


    Authorities had been seeking Benitez since the slaying of Stephanie Spears in Hawthorne more than four years ago. Benitez had a son with Spears, and the child had not been seen since the mother was beaten to death with a dumbbell, according to his fugitive profile on the FBI Web site. The Web site said Benitez may have been traveling with the son, Benjamin.

    Benjamin is one of the missing that really stuck with me, I think it's because he looks so much like one of my boys. I almost cried when I read that he had been found. I am praying that he will be able to heal both physically and mentally.
    Happy New Years
