    The hit and run possibility never occurred to me until now. It makes a lot more sense that Debra spent more than a minute inside the house. If she was getting a hammer and nails (as reported earlier), she may have had to go to the garage/tool shed/something of that nature to get them, my point there being that the tools probably weren't right inside the house. Jimmy could've walked into the road to look at a bird or animal, not realizing there was a car coming. If he were struck and killed/severely injured, the boards would've gone flying. The driver could've panicked and decided to cover up the accident and put the body in his car. Even if Debra was only gone for 3-5 minutes, this could've happened without her or anyone seeing anything.

    My only problem with the theory is that none of the neighbors reported seeing or hearing anything. I'd think there would've been screeching tires or something. It still makes a lot of sense to me, though.

    My son looks exactly like Jimmy. It's absolutely haunting.

    How long after he went missing, did the dog disappear also?
    It makes me wonder if someone came back to get it for Jimmy.

    I wonder how much the former foster parents were looked at. It sounds like there was still one brother staying with the foster mother, could there have been people who felt Jimmy would be better off staying with someone other than family?

    When Jimmy disappeared, where was his dog at the time? It sounded like the dog was very attached to him. If he had been hit by a car, I would expect the dog to be very upset if it had seen that happen.

    Just because you want to be with somebody does not mean they will take care of your children.
