But I could have sworn I read somewhere that they were siblings, that CPS had taken from the same mom (Shemika).


    And let's face it, how many LWR III's can there be? Really?



    That's a good find, LaLaw! How weird.....

    And if I may nitpick for a moment, in one of the videos I saw the family/friends handing out flyers with Hassani's picture and details on them, but his name was spelled "Hasanni". Um, which is right? Can't the family spell their own kid's name?


    Bolded by me

    I'll be picky too, I'm a spelling nut. I think the correct way (or truly Arabic way?) to spell Hassani is with 2 s's. I imagine his parents changed the spelling when they named him. I can't imagine them printing up all those posters with his name not spelled as it is on his birth certificate ! Just a thought. I could be wrong!

    For Pudd:

    [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showpost.php?p=4041529&postcount=2"]Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - View Single Post - Forensic Astrology - Hassani Campbell[/ame]

    ...Campbell became Hasanni's legal guardian after her sister, 25-year-old Shemika Campbell of San Francisco, could not take care of him, relatives said.

    Clark said Shemika Campbell is "just devastated" by the boy's disappearance.

    Court records show that San Francisco officials sued Shemika Campbell and Hasanni's father, Ronald Hughes, starting in 2005, claiming they were unable to support Hasanni.

    The actions, one against Hughes and the other against Campbell, were apparently resolved last year with a default judgment entered on behalf of the city. They could not be reached for comment.

    1. That driveway has always made me slightly nervous if I'm walking alone at night. It's easy to duck into and be shielded by that building. Vehicles (UPS, work trucks) do tend to pull part way into the driveway of the parking lot for a few minutes to half an hour or so at a time. Likewise, across the street (almost directly) is a basement parking structure accessible by a lower garage door that goes down from the street.

    2. Barclay's, the bar/restaurant across the street, is a busy establishment. However, even the outdoor seating is below street level. IMO, the odds of sitting down there (which I've done) and seeing what's going on clearly across the street aren't great.

    3. The parking lot is really small, as the blonde woman said in the news video. Through the archway is the apartment parking area, leading to a street that dead ends. However, if someone had a car waiting or idling near there, or around the corner on Auburn (which does not get much traffic during the day), it would be IMO an easy getaway. You would have to move VERY fast, and prepare, but once you make a turn or two, you're pretty much home-free. You have a much higher chance of being noticed if you go down College than if you go down to the other end of Harwood.

    4. That all said, there is foot traffic on Harwood throughout the day, especially as people return home around that time. There is a church across the street from that corner, which usually has people out front, in addition to several coffee shops. The time it takes to round that corner is indeed very fast, especially if you were in a hurry and using a quick pace.

    5. His reasons for using the parking lot make sense to me, considering what's been going on in Oakland lately. There is honestly nowhere to park along College Ave most of the time, for about five blocks in either direction. You have to park on the side streets, which have 2 hour parking. However, on Harwood during that time of day, you can sometimes have to travel to the roundabout or beyond to find a spot (even if you look at side streets, too). Lately, the City of Oakland has extended the parking enforcement hours and hugely increased parking ticket fines. My friends have parked in front of my house and exceeded 2 hours by minutes, and ended up with $80 tickets. Minor infractions can set you back as much as $300 lately, as Oakland tries to use parking enforcement to balance its very sad budget.

    Despite all this, the only scenario that makes sense to me for an abduction is that someone either heavily planned this in advance, had the help of one or both parents, or lives really nearby (there is a house on the other side of the driveway). It would have to be such a quick initial grab. I do see it as possible to go unnoticed, and to exit quickly, but it requires so many "if"s and it's never happened here before.

    The Neighborhood Watch Group mentioned that they saw the foster father obviously distraught, asking people if they'd seen Hassani and running up and down College Avenue when this happened. The canine dogs traveled both ends of Harwood that day, as well as the gas station on the corner, and parts of College Ave setting up a perimeter. Additionally, I've been personally questioned by LE and asked to fill out an extensive survey, even mentioning any deliveries I got that day or people who visited me, listing their names and phone numbers. They seem like they've been really thorough, and I only imagine they've been more thorough with those in the dwellings right beside the parking lot.

    Also, for what it's worth, I can't think of a single reason you'd travel surface streets between Fremont and Rockridge. Even with the worst of traffic, you'd be faster on the freeway (due to lights, busy intersections, etc.)--possibly 90 min instead of 30-45. Additionally, this is an largely white neighborhood (at least until you go lower than College Ave or beyond Broadway). People are not bigoted here (quite the opposite), but you would tend to notice someone of color a little more easily.

    I'd like to also add that the neighbors who are around during the day are quite vigilant. The Neighborhood Watch has people who see a solicitor, or someone snipping their flowers, and call the non-emergency number for the police. Lots of security systems, and lots of video cameras. I have a hard time thinking if anyone suspicious was lurking around they wouldn't be noticed or questioned by neighbors (I've seen it happen).
    Forensics Fan, thank you so much for your great posts! For one thing, you cleared up the mystery of where that little archway leads--so it doesn't dead end in the back yard of the apartment, it actually leads to another street (which dead ends) but nonetheless, a street.

    An abduction here would have to be so orchestrated, so planned, IMO. Or just a combination of weird opportunity and one-off "luck" (ugh) for an abductor...It almost seems as if Hasanni were abducted it would have to be by someone who lives in the apt's right there, or close by.

    I was there in person this weekend, and I'd like to know if you think that people working in the business on the left hand side of the alley could look out to the alley and see something happening ? That was my impression but you go by there a lot and might have another take on it.

    It sounds like LE is being extremely thorough and that is great to hear.
    Thanks again for your post.

    Ronald M Hughes...San Francisco, undisclosed location. Pretty sure he's been posted, but here's another look at him, I think it's a different pic, but I'm not sure.

    Also, my pay site kicks out a LWR DOB 6-1-1944, as well as a J S Lin and Y L Miyajima at the Fremont address.

    Hey guys - I don't want to interrupt the flow of conversation, but I have started a new thread for this case, and will ask the mods to lock this one - 42 pages is getting unmanageable.

    Please feel free to carry current articles and discussion there.

    Thanks.
