    LA - Brian Horn on trial for murder of Justin Bloxom, 12, - 2010

    http://www.wafb.com/Global/story.asp?S=12229439

    DESOTO PARISH, LA (KSLA) - Investigators from DeSoto Parish have arrested 34-year-old Brian Douglas Horn, a registered sex offender, for the alleged murder of a 12-year-old Stonewall, LA boy.

    Investigators say Justin M. Bloxom was last seen at a home on Douglas Lane in Stonewall, Louisiana.

    Police say that Horn, a taxi driver who worked out of Bossier City, allegedly murdered the boy.

    Efforts to track Horn down led to Action Taxi on Barksdale Boulevard in Bossier City, where employees were told by police to be on the lookout for him and to call immediately if he showed up, which he did a short time later.

    However Horn didn't stay long, leaving his taxi behind. It's the one authorities believe was seen near where the little boy's body was found.

    Looks like he has had 2 charges before.

    Interesting that his employer knew he was a RSO but didn't think he could refuse employment. So, he hires a RSO as a cab driver.

    The body of a missing 12-year-old DeSoto Parish boy was found this afternoon in woods near Stonewall in the north part of the parish.

    A registered sex offender -- who is believed to have been seen coming out of the same woods early today -- surrendered to DeSoto authorities later in the day and was undergoing questioning by investigators.

    Authorities said the body is that of Justin Bloxom, who was last seen about 3 a.m. at a friend's home in Stonewall. They were on spring break from school. Investigators said Justin was texting someone.

    Justin's body was found about 1:30 p.m. Deputies said it was approximately 100 yards off U.S. 171. Sheriff's investigator Adam Ewing said it is believed Justin was killed somewhere else and his body dumped in the woods.

    Authorities identified the suspect as Brian Douglas Horn, 34, of Keatchie. He drove for Action Taxi of Bossier City, authorities said.

    Horn was a registered sex offender. He pleaded no-contest in 1995 to charges of indecent behavior with an underage girl, Caddo District Court records show.

    A taxi driver? He gets to cruise the streets with impunity. Why would this have been an acceptable job?

    Oh, how I wish we could develop "sheltered work-shops" for RSOs where they could honestly earn their keep, have a quality of life, and an incentive to stay "clean". But, they could constantly be supervised while at work. Their supervisors would also immediately know if someone failed to show up.

    We insist that many of our disabled adults or elders with dementia be closely supervised. Why can't we do that for RSOs who've done their time? I'm not talking about civil commitment. I'm seeing something more of a communal way of life and transport to and from a work site. Other countries do this, why can't we? At least cut down on the opportunity to re-offend with those who have passed stringent evaluations.

    My prayers go out to the family for their loss.

    I totally agree.

    A cab driver drives around all day. Just think how easy it is for him to see a 12 yo child or any other child that could be snatched. He could go by the child several times with out being "hinky" cause, it's a cab.

    It's bad enough that RSOs go on to re-offend -- but to kill a young boy? It's the ultimate evil in perversion.

    RIP, Justin

    Prayers for those who loved him & that true justice will prevail.

    Here in Oregon, SOs are NOT a protected class. I don't believe they enjoy that status and protection in any state. That's why employers and landlords have the right to ask about any registry requirements. Different "classes" enjoy varying levels of protections depending on the state.

    It becomes a very sticky situation for juveniles as their records are private. Many people don't know that a juvenile offender could be sitting next to their child in middle or high school as the school is not necessarily privy to that info. A juvenile offender might also be living in an apartment next door to a family with children as the landlord doesn't know. Registered foster families (for children, adults, and the disabled), though, must have background checks run on ALL people living in the family. We all know, though, that this rule is frequently broken.

    A frightening component of the taxi driver issue is that I've seen parents leave a child in a taxi with the driver for a few minutes while they run in to get a gallon of milk--with the meter running. I would think that a taxi company owner would be terrified of the liability issues with that.

    Does anyone know at whose house this child was found and how the SO came across him?

    Izz, after reading alot of articles I believe poor Justin was somehow known to POS, freak show. I also read his own brother turned him in? This sweet boy was found on the side of a road, Izz not at the friend's house.

    Justin, may you rest in peace, honey. I am so sorry. I'm sorry the system failed to keep you protected.

    Senseless

    Justin Bloxom was lured by this POS who pretended to be a teen girl. The "suspect" texted Justin at 3:00AM pretending to be the girl and said SHE was sending a taxi to pick him up.

    LE is looking into a social networking site which may be the connection.

    POS's muddy boots were found in his brother's pick-up. Tehy have witnesses placing his taxi at the scene of the crime.

    This is all too sad. It's senseless. A rotten reoffending pedophile now gets housed and fed while this poor boys family will suffer.

    That's despicable!! Luring makes me sick to my stomach. Anyone know if the cab company will bear any liability in this awful crime?

    And I agree, why 2nd degree. Wouldn't there be kidnapping in the mix?

    Good question.
    I would guess they will be able to upgrade the charges once the autopsy is complete and they decide they want to pursue the death penalty?
