    Autistic teen missing in Visalia


    "The parents of a missing autistic teenager are at odds with investigators who have labeled their son a runaway. Dameian “Luke” Gulley, 14, didn’t arrive home from school Monday evening and is still missing.

    His parents, Miguel and Andrea Villegas, later learned that Gulley (Gulley is Andrea Villegas’ maiden name) — who usually walks to Valley Oak Middle School — never made it to school Monday. The boy walks the same route every day along the St. Johns River, on the elevated trail.

    Gulley is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs roughly 130 pounds. He has hazel eyes and brown hair. His parents described him as tall, thin and pale.

    He was last seen wearing shorts and a light blue hoodie sweatshirt. He had on dark gray tennis shoes with a blue stripe. He was also wearing ear buds connected to an MP3 player........."

    This is just awful. I don't feel this boy would have ran off on his own, having such habitual nature. There is always the possibility he was coerced in to running away, but feel if that was the case he wouldn't have left behind items he uses in his daily routine. I don't understand why LE wouldn't be treating this case a bit differently than they seem to be. JMO

    This was one of my son's friends. It crazy to see something like this happen in our city. I see it all over the USA, but when it's in your own town it really hits home. Dameian's stepfather was arrested today for his murder.

    I don't think that trial happened. Cannot find Villegas in California DOC or any further MSM.

    Kids getting murdered pisses me off by default, but just a little bit more if they were special needs of whatever stripe. Especially with kids on the spectrum (which I used to be - the kid part, anyway), they are often dehumanised and painted as some kind of bodysnatching burden and too much of the sympathy goes to the killer, not nearly enough to the children who didn't ask for any of this.

    RIP Damiean. You deserved better.
