    UPDATED: Hasanni Campbell's aunt to be released from jail

    The foster mother of Hasanni Campbell, the 5-year-old disabled Fremont boy who is now considered a homicide victim by Oakland police, will not be charged with a crime today, prosecutors said.

    Jennifer Campbell, who is six months pregnant, and her fiance, Louis Ross, were arrested Friday in what investigators are saying is a homicide case. Ross reported the boy missing Aug. 10.

    Alameda County Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said no charges will be filed against Jennifer Campbell. It is expected Campbell will be released from Santa Rita Jail this afternoon.

    "There is insufficient evidence at this time, and the investigation is continuing," Rogers said.

    Campbell refused to talk to police about the case at all after the arrest, investigators said.

    Ross is due in court Tuesday, and prosecutors still are reviewing the case.


    Police have said the last confirmed sighting of the boy was Aug. 6, when he was seen with his foster parents at a Wal-Mart store in Fremont.

    Will Foster Parents Be Charged With Murder?
    August 31, 2009
    <snipped>
    We should find out soon whether the foster parents of little Hasanni Campbell will be charged with murdering him. Oakland police held Louis Ross and Jennifer Campbell, who is also Hasanni's aunt, in custody over the weekend on suspicion that the Fremont couple killed the 5-year-old and then told a bogus story that he went missing in Oakland's Rockridge district. It's not clear what evidence police have against the couple, and if prosecutors do charge them this week with murder, it could be a tough case to prove without a body -- although they were able to do it in the Hans Reiser case a few years ago.

    UPDATED: Foster Mother Of Missing Boy Released From Jail
    Updated: 1:53 pm PDT August 31, 2009
    <snipped>
    The foster mother of missing five-year-old Hasanni Campbell was released from custody Monday after authorities determined they did not have enough evidence to charge her in his disappearance and apparent death.

    Jennifer Campbell, 33, and her boyfriend, Louis Ross, 38, were both arrested Friday after Oakland investigators ruled the boy’s disappearance was a homicide.

    But hours before her first schedule court appearance, Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said there was “insufficient evidence” to charge her at this time. However, Ross remained in custody on suspicion of homicide charges.

    UPDATED: No charges against Hasanni's foster mother
    August 31, 2009
    <snipped>
    (08-31) 13:01 PDT OAKLAND --The boy's foster father remains in custody on suspicion of murder.

    "We are not charging her; there is insufficient evidence at this time," Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said.
    John Burris, an attorney who has been consulting with the couple, said of Campbell today, "I'm not surprised that the D.A. chose not to file charges. There was never evidence connecting her to a crime.

    "At best, it was just her association with Louis, but that was not in any way reflective of criminal behavior or knowledge on her part," Burris said. "I totally thought it was a wrong-headed approach by the Police Department. I'm glad that the D.A. and cooler heads prevailed."

    As for Ross, Burris said police probably arrested him simply because they didn't believe his story that Hasanni had been outside the shoe store.

    "From there, they inferred that if he's lying about that, then he must know something about it," Burris said. "But there's no real evidence. There's no independent evidence of any kind, no corroborative evidence and no admissions by him. In that sense, it's pretty weak."

    "She was quite emotionally distraught," Burris said. "She was in a state of disbelief and shock and reiterated that she had not done anything wrong and answered all their questions. She cannot believe she was treated in such a way by the police."

    Burris said Ross was similarly emotional and "very much concerned" about his fiancee's well-being.

    Burris said he had referred Ross to a criminal defense attorney but declined to identify that lawyer, pending an expected meeting between the two Tuesday.

    UPDATED: Hasanni Campbell's Foster Mom Won't Face Charges
    Aug 31, 2009 1:41 pm US/Pacific
    <snipped>
    KCBS Radio has learned that the foster mother of a missing 5-year-old boy won't be charged in connection with the boy's disappearance.

    Jennifer Campbell, who is also the child's aunt, was arrested Friday along with the boy's foster father, Louis Ross.

    Ross and Campbell were being questioned by investigators in the murder of 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell, who has cerebral palsy, Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said.

    Ross and Campbell were arrested separately within an hour of each other, Thomason added. He said police have not recovered the boy's body.

    Monday morning, KCBS learned that Campbell was scheduled to be released from jail some point during the day, without any charges being filed against her. Campbell was scheduled for arraignment Monday afternoon on aiding and abetting charges.

    UPDATED: Hasanni Campbell's aunt to be released
    Monday, August 31, 2009 | 11:44 AM
    <snipped>
    The aunt of missing Hasanni Campbell will be released from jail today and no charges will be filed against her, prosecutors said.

    Alameda County Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said there was "insufficient evidence" to charge Jennifer Campbell in the case.

    Her fiance, Louis Ross, remains in custody and is being held on suspicion of murder. Prosecutors have until tomorrow to file charges against him.


    The pair was arrested on Friday.

    Hasanni, who has cerebral palsy, disappeared three weeks ago today. Police say even though they have not found his body, they consider this a homicide investigation and not a missing person's case. Police say they are now looking for the five-year-old boy's body.

    Foster Mother of Missing 5-Year-Old to be Released From Police Custody
    8/31/2009 10:20:00 AM
    <snipped>
    Officials say the foster mother of missing 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell is being released from police custody.

    According to Alameda County Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers, there is insufficient evidence to charge 30-year-old Jennifer Campbell as an accessory in Hasanni’s murder.

    On Friday, Campbell and her fiancée, Louis Ross, were arrested in connection with the boy’s disappearance on August 10th.

    Police spokesperson Jeff Thomason says the two were arrested separately within an hour of each other, “This is not a missing persons case anymore. This is a homicide investigation," Thomason said late Friday outside police headquarters in downtown Oakland. "We are talking to the people responsible. We do believe Hasanni Campbell is dead."

    Rogers notes that he’s reviewing police reports to see if there’s enough evidence to file murder charges against 38-year-old Ross, Hasanni’s foster father, who is tentatively scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.

    Police confirm that the boy’s body has not been found.

    KRON 4’s Reggie Kumar spoke to John Burris, the couple’s legal consultant, who says he talked to Ross just a few hours before the arrests and that the couple had been undergoing intense questioning by Oakland police, “I know there is no body. I’m surprised as to why they were arrested. Which then means, and we hope, that there may be probable cause to support the arrest, other than they were the last people to see the child alive.”

    Police are expected to make an announcement about the arrests in the next few days.

    No Charges to Be Filed Against Jennifer Campbell
    Posted: Monday, 31 August 2009 10:13AM
    <snipped>
    KCBS has learned that the aunt and foster mother of a missing 5-year-old boy won't be charged in connection with the case.

    Monday morning, KCBS learned that Campbell was scheduled to be released from jail some point during the day, without any charges being filed against her.

    Campbell was scheduled for arraignment Monday afternoon on aiding and abetting charges.

    A team of investigators searched the couple's Bay Area home again Friday for clues in Fremont, Calif.

    Thomason said it's an ongoing investigation discuss further what led to the arrest after the boy disappeared on Aug. 10. Ross, the last known person to see Hasanni, said the boy disappeared after he briefly left the boy outside his car in the rear parking lot of an upscale Oakland neighborhood shoe store where his fiancee, Campbell, works.

    Prominent San Francisco Bay-area civil rights attorney John Burris, who has been advising the couple shortly after Hasanni's disappearance, said Friday that he was surprised by the couple's arrest.

    "I'm not aware of any hard physical evidence that ties either one into a missing child," said Burris, adding that authorities have 72 hours to file charges.

    She said if Ross and Campbell, who met online two years ago, know where Hasanni is, to say something.

    "We need to find Hasanni."

    Hasanni Campbell's foster mother to be released
    August 31, 2009
    <snipped>
    The aunt and foster mother of 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell, who was reported missing earlier this month and who police now believe was murdered, will be released from custody today after being arrested on Friday, Alameda County Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said.

    Rogers said there is insufficient evidence to charge Jennifer Campbell, 30, as an accessory in Hasanni's murder. The boy's body has not been found.

    Rogers said the investigation into the disappearance is continuing and that he's reviewing police reports to see if there's enough evidence to file murder charges against Louis Ross, 38, the boy's foster father.


    Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said Friday that police are no longer considering the case to be a missing-persons case and instead are investigating it as a homicide.

    *NOTE: Missed this article when it was released.....Sorry!

    No Wonder There Isn't a Stronger Outcry About the Missing Boy
    August 21, 2009
    <snipped>
    The Oakland Tribune's Tammerlin Drummond complained in a piece yesterday that people weren't out searching for 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell, who allegedly went missing in Rockridge, suggesting that it was because the boy isn't white. Drummond also argued that there was no evidence to suspect Campbell's foster father was involved in the child's disappearance. But of course, there has been ample reason to suspect the foster father from early on in the case, and now there's even more. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, newly released court documents show that Louis Ross threatened to abandon the child just ten days before the boy supposedly went missing.

    But more to the point, people have been justified for the past week for not partaking in a massive search of the boy. Drummond compared Hasanni's disappearance to the case of Sandra Cantu who went missing in Tracy. But there is one major difference that explains people's reactions. There was never any question about Sandra's parents being involved in her disappearance, but from the beginning, police questioned Ross' version of events — and rightly so. Investigators searched his home and a junkyard that Ross said he took the boy to before going to Rockridge. Indeed, there is reason to question whether the little boy was ever in Rockridge the day Ross reported him missing. So why should people be blamed for not embarking on what could be a wild goose chase, when police themselves are not doing it?

    OAKLAND: UPDATE: FOSTER MOTHER WON'T FACE CHARGES, ADVISER BURRIS 'GLAD'
    Mon, 31 Aug 2009 12:24
    <snipped>
    Oakland attorney John Burris said he's not surprised that the Alameda County District Attorney's office isn't filing any charges against 30-year-old Jennifer Campbell, the boy's foster mother and aunt, because he believes "there was no factual basis for her to be arrested."

    Burris said being arrested was traumatic for Campbell, who is six months pregnant, and caused her "a great deal of emotional harm."

    But Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said Campbell will be released from custody later today because there's insufficient evidence at this time to charge her as an accessory in the murder of Hasanni, whose body hasn't been found. However, the investigation into the boy's disappearance is continuing, Rogers said.


    Rogers said he's still reviewing police reports to see if there's enough evidence to file murder charges against the boy's foster father, 38-year-old Louis Ross.

    If charges are filed, Ross will likely be arraigned in Alameda County Superior Court at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Rogers said.

    Thomason couldn't immediately be reached for comment today.

    Burris said he thinks that that the Oakland Police Department arrested Campbell as "a tactic to intimidate her to talk" and disclose incriminating evidence against Ross.

    He said, "She hadn't done anything wrong but the police didn't accept that."


    Burris said he was in the process of finding a lawyer to represent Campbell in case she appeared in court, but that he won't have to do so now that she is being released.

    However, he said he has found a lawyer to represent Ross in the event charges are filed against him.

    No charges for missing boy's foster mother
    Posted: 08/31/2009 02:06:48 PM PDT
    <snipped>
    The foster mother of a missing 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy won't face criminal charges after prosecutors decided there isn't enough evidence to proceed with her case.

    Alameda County prosecutor Tom Rogers says 33-year-old Jennifer Campbell will not be charged in the disappearance of Hasanni Campbell, who is also her biological nephew.

    Rogers says the district attorney's office is still deciding whether to charge her fiance, 38-year-old Louis Ross, who is being held on suspicion of murder.

    Ross reported the boy missing Aug. 10, saying he vanished after being left alone in a car parked at the back entrance of an Oakland shoe store where Campbell works.

    Police arrested Ross and Campbell Friday, nearly three weeks after Hasanni disappeared.

    Missing Boy's Foster Mother Speaks About Release

    OAKLAND, Calif. -- The foster mother of Hasanni Campbell told KTVU after her release from jail Monday that she hasn't lost her focus on finding the five-year-old who went missing three weeks ago.

    Jennifer Campbell was released from jail just hours before her first scheduled court appearance. Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers said there was “insufficient evidence” to charge her at this time and that police have a "different standard of proof" than prosecutors.

    "All I know is that this was one of the most difficult times in my life," Campbell told KTVU after her release. "I'm still focused on finding Hasanni."

    Campbell said she was "in utter shock" when police arrested her at the Union City BART station Friday when she spoke to KTVU about being interrogated by police.

    "They just said I was guilty of something. I told them I didn't do anything. I just said find Hasanni. They accused me over and over again of doing something. I told them I didn't," Campbell said.

    Oakland police have not said what led to the arrest of the foster parents or why investigators believe the child is dead.

    Following her release, Campbell attended a prayer service for Hasanni in the Rockridge neighborhood.

    Campbell was greeted by friends and those who have helped in the search for Hasanni.
