    Cops: Kidnap suspect looks good for other cases
    August 30, 2009
    <snipped>
    Crime story II:

    Oakland police decided early last week to arrest the foster parents of missing Hasanni Campbell - the only question was when to pull the trigger.

    The first hint of a turn in the case came Wednesday when Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason suddenly stopped talking with reporters.

    Up until then, the department had been handling Hasanni's disappearance as a missing-persons case and holding regular briefings.

    And while Hasanni's foster father, Louis Ross, called police every day, little of what he told them about Hasanni's disappearance checked out, sources said.

    "We never came up with one piece of proof that the child was ever in Rockridge that day," one police source said, referring to the neighborhood where the father claims the 5-year-old went missing.

    And as time wore on, so did the feeling among investigators that they had to make a move in the very high-profile case.

    "There are no new leads and still no body, but we felt it was time to bring them in, separate them and sweat them," said one police source.

    Murder case to be built even though boy missing
    August 30, 2009
    <snipped>
    When a Fremont man and his fiancee are called to court this week in connection with the apparent slaying of their disabled 5-year-old foster son, prosecutors will be moving forward even though his body hasn't been found.

    Louis Ross, 38, and his fiancee, Jennifer Campbell, 33, who have not been charged in the case, are the latest in a string of East Bay homicide suspects against whom police have built a case without a body.

    Ross is being held without bail at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin on suspicion of murdering Hasanni Campbell, while Jennifer Campbell is being held in lieu of $15,000 bail on suspicion of being an accessory in the case.

    Circumstantial evidence helped convict Hans Reiser of first-degree murder in the 2006 slaying of his estranged wife, Nina, in the Oakland hills. His sentence was later reduced for leading police to her body.

    Hasanni's case presents its own unique challenges.

    In Hasanni's case, prosecutors plan to prove the boy was murdered in part because no one has seen him since he disappeared Aug. 10, and Ross allegedly sent an expletive-laden text message to Campbell threatening to leave the boy alone on a BART platform.

    Hassani Campbell is Missing: Foster Parents Arrested for Suspicion of Murder
    Fiance of Aunt Sent Angry Text Message Threatening to Abandon 5-year-old Just Days Before Disappearance
    August 29, 2009
    <snipped>
    Not just his disappearance, but his death. Oakland Police announced Friday, according to the Associated Press, that Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell, the aunt of the 5-year-old boy, were charged with suspicion of murder. A spokesperson for the Oakland Police announced that the couple had been brought in for questioning.

    "This is not a missing persons case anymore. This is a homicide investigation," Jeff Thomason, spokesman for the Oakland Police Department, said Friday. "We are talking to the people responsible. We do believe Hasanni Campbell is dead."

    Jeff Thomason said that Hassani Campbell's body had not been found and would not elaborate on why police believe that the boy is dead.

    But being under suspicion or arrested for murder does not necessarily mean that those arrested or suspected are actually guilty of said crime or crimes. Polygraph results, although used as leverage in investigations, are inadmissible as evidence in legal cases.

    Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell are maintaining their innocence with regard to the disappearance of Hassani Campbell. They have a website set up in the effort to find him: FindHassani.com. There is a reward of more than $10,000 for information as to the whereabouts of the missing boy.

    Neighbors Nonplussed By Arrests
    Posted: Sunday, 30 August 2009 2:35PM
    <snipped>
    Prosecutors in Alameda County Sunday worked to build a case against a Fremont couple suspected in the death of their missing foster child.

    While investigators combed the Fremont home where Louis Ross and his fiance, Jennifer Campbell, live, those who work and live nearby told KCBS they weren't at all surprised when the couple was arrested Friday on suspicion of murdering the child.

    The county prosecutor in charge of North Oakland was out investigating around the Rockridge shoe store driveway where Louis Ross says his 5-year-old foster son Hasanni Campbell disappeared three weeks ago. The DA has until the end of the day Tuesday to file charges against Ross, who was arrested Friday on suspicion of murdering the boy. Jennifer Campbell was arrested on suspicion of being an accessory.

    So far, police have not found any evidence that the boy was in the car, nor have they found his body. If they can't get one of the couple to confess, or develop enough other hard evidence by Tuesday, they would have to release Ross and Campbell while the investigation goes on.

    UPDATED: Foster Parents Of Missing Boy Maintain Innocence From Jail
    Posted: 3:25 pm PDT August 28, 2009
    Updated: 7:05 pm PDT August 30, 2009

    The foster parents of missing five-year-old Hasanni Campbell are maintaining their innocence after their arrest on Friday on charges of murder, according to an attorney who visited the two in jail on Sunday.

    Louis Ross was arrested on suspicion of homicide on Friday. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.

    Jennifer Campbell was arrested on suspicion of aiding and abetting a felony. She is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.

    “We have not located his body and we do need people who know where he is,” said police spokesman Jeff Thomason, “And we don't believe he is alive.”

    Oakland attorney John Burris visited Campbell and Ross Sunday, in attempt to assist them in locating a criminal defense attorney.

    Oakland police have not said what led to the arrest of the foster parents or why investigators believe the child is dead, though they have indicated they may reveal more information in this case on Monday.

    Volunteers say they will continue with plans for a vigil Monday evening for Hasanni at the Shuz of Rockridge shoe store in the 6000 block of College Avenue in Oakland where he was allegedly last seen.

    Just want you all to know it's great we got a subforum for Hasanni! I have not looked through everything yet, as I am not feeling good. Just wanted to check in but I will be back later or tomorrow when I'm feeling better!
    100 years from now, it won't matter what kind of car you drove or how big your house was. What will matter is that you were important in the eyes of a child.
