Search for missing Fremont boy turns up suspicious sweatshirt
Posted: Monday, 14 September 2009 5:25AM
The search for a Fremont boy who police believe was murdered took a strange twist yesterday, when a group of volunteers looking for the boy discovered some discarded clothing just a mile away from where he was last seen.
The group discovered a gray sweatshirt, child's sock and a piece of a blanket on a hillside.
Police cordoned off the area and inspected the clothing, but say it doesn't appear to have been worn by 5-year-old Hassani Campbell.
Volunteers have been combing the area where Campbell's foster parents claim he went missing a month ago.
Kudos, and a check, for DHS

The state of Arkansas has received more than $800,000 for exceeding targets to find more adoptive homes for foster children, particularly some harder-to-place children. It outperformed a number of larger states, according to federal figures.
Children in foster care are more apt to be abused, neglected, raped, killed or go missing (just Google Hassani Campbell) than they are in their real homes. Now the states are offering to pay fosters even more money if they'll allow the child to stay in the home until age 21! See, that's the difference here. Fosters kick the kids out on their 18th birthday but their real parents would NEVER EVER EVER do that! They send them to college, when they can, help them move out on their own or let them stay home until such time as they can afford and emotionally handle living on their own.
Everyone wants to think that CPS is this benevolent, altruistic organization, saving all the abused and neglected children in the country but that is NOT what is going on here. I have personally talked with countless parents who tell me that on every visitation they have with their children that they're bruised, have stitches, severe diaper rashes, broken bones, are filthy, wearing clothes either way too small or way too big, and eat like they're starving to death. Some tell the parents that they've been sexually abused by someone in the foster home and when they report it to their case worker, they tell them to mind their own business.

Police To Analyze Clothes In Hasanni Campbell Case
Sep 14, 2009 9:05 pm US/Pacific
Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said Monday that clothing found by volunteers searching for missing 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell doesn't appear to belong to him.
However, Thomason said investigators will do a lab analysis to try to determine if there is any connection between the clothing and Hasanni, who suffers from cerebral palsy and was reported missing from the parking lot of the Shuz of Rockridge shoe store in the 6000 block of College Ave. about 4:15 p.m. on Aug. 10 by his stepfather, Louis Ross.
Volunteers found a gray sweatshirt and a sock at the end of Chabot Road in Oakland about 1:10 p.m. on Sunday. The area is about a mile east from the spot where Ross reported last seeing him.
Thomason said the reason that investigators don't think the clothing belonged to Hasanni is that it appears to be the wrong size and Ross said it wasn't the same clothing that the boy wore.
Thomason said there haven't been any new tips in the case in recent weeks and police do not condone the private searches such as the one conducted on Sunday.
She said there also will be another candlelight vigil for Hasanni at 6:30 p.m. Monday outside the College Avenue Presbyterian Church at 5951 College Ave., which is across the street from the Shuz of Rockridge store. There's been a vigil in the area every Monday night since Hasanni disappeared.
