    This past Thursday, Rockford police responded to a call for a missing two-year-old boy, Kyrian Knox. It's unclear when Kyrian was seen last, but it's believed he was in the care of a family friend before he disappeared.

    Rockford police are investigating. Kyrian is described as an African American male, approximately 30 inches, 35 pounds, he has low cut black hair and brown eyes.

    There is quite a bit of information in this article but I want to highlight Kyrian's daycare provider's experience with him. I watched a child for 2 years (nearly every day for 10-12 hours) and it is amazing the attachment you grow to have when they are such a large part of your day for so long. I really feel for this woman.

    Remains found in Chicago lagoon confirmed as missing Rockford toddler

    Kamel Harris, 40, of Rockford, may be one of the last people to see Kyrian alive. His name was on a missing-person flyer distributed by the family. A day or two after Kyrian was reported missing, Harris was arrested and jailed on a burglary charge.

    Contacted at that time in the Winnebago County Jail, Harris said that Lanisha Knox, a friend of his daughter, dropped Kyrian off at his Rockford home in August with a pack of diapers and $30. “What the hell am I supposed to do with $30 and a pack of diapers? I didn’t even know her,” Harris said in a telephone interview from jail. “She just dropped him off and left.”

    Harris was fuzzy on dates. He said Kyrian arrived in early August and was picked up later in the month when people he didn’t know arrived at his door. “The little boy ran to him and was all happy,” Harris said. Harris said he spoke to Lanisha Knox before releasing the child to the visitors.

    Harris’ girlfriend, Danyelle Foggs, 34, said she was not present when Kyrian arrived and was not present when he left. However, she said she received a text message from Lanisha Knox on Sept. 17 saying she wanted to talk to her son. “I said, ‘What? I’m lost. What do you mean?’”

    ROCKFORD — Danyelle Foggs' tears are as much for her own children as for a toddler who lived with her and is now confirmed dead.


    "A part of me hasn't stopped crying," she said Thursday. "I don't know how to feel."

    [...]

    Foggs, 34, seemed to express more anger than sorrow over the unfolding events. She said she considered it a "big ol' slap in the face" when Lanisha Knox and Shakela Harris made arrangements for Kamel Harris to watch their children without her knowledge. She and Kamel Harris are no longer together.

    "They decided to bring their children here," she said. "He says 'Yes.' And now I don't have my own children. I've been a mother since I was 13 years old, and now I don't have my own children because of these two girls. "

    If Kyrian talked well, why would have he remained silent during the phone calls with his mom? and why mom didn't see anything wrong with it?

    Carolyn also said Lanisha lived a mile and a half from the lagoon. Is it a coincidence that Kyrian's body ended up in the area known to his mother?

    And why would Lanisha have said that he hasn't started talking yet?

    This has to be one of the strangest cases I have ever followed.

    Saying you have identified a POI but not actually identifying that person to the media. Why even come out and say you have identified a POI? IMO KH was a POI from day one. I think KH will become a suspect once the ME announces the KY died in a homicidal manner, if that can be determined.

    Hopefully the residence where KH was watching KY has been or will be searched and blood evidence can be found, tying KH to the crime.

    Is it possible that Danyelle genuinely thought KH was telling the truth that someone connected to Lanisha had picked up Kyrian? Could that be why Danyelle keeps inferring that Lanisha knows more than she's telling?

    When KH got out of jail, Danyelle seemed happy/boasting about it. A few weeks later she's left him...

    Reading the initial missing report from Lanisha again, and remembering that the ex-babysitter said she saw the sketch and immediately thought of Kyrian, makes my hinky meter go up thinking why Lanisha insisted that Kyrian's hair was "low cut". I recall recently the ex-babysitter saying that Lanisha insisted that the sketch was NOT Kyrian.

    The title of the article and the lack of information leads me to believe LE thinks he's responsible - not that he just knows something.

    I would agree.. I think the biggest obstacle for LE is to determine if he acted alone or were other people involved. So emphasizing "they just want to talk to him and that he isn't being charged" allows them to still put the pieces together.

    I don't blame LE... there are too many suspects and they all have a motive. I am sure they want to make sure he didn't have an accomplice(s). To have possibly commited such a heinous crime by himself, and D going to Chicago with him around the time body was placed in lagoon . THEN S&L takes him back to Chicago for plasma approx. 2 days after that. Yet no one knew or smelled anything is possible but very strange.

    They will need to be sure of the charge, and if he acted alone.

    Why didn't Rockford police interview him about Ky's disappearance when he was in their custody on an unrelated burglary charge??!! At that time, the grandma was screaming all over the news that Kamel knew something!
