    How sad. I hope his mother can get some answers, after all this time.
    Was the aunt ruled out as a suspect? I've never heard about this little boy's case until now.

    What is strange about this is that the aunt had custody and the mother is now being interviewed about it. Where is the aunt now? Why did the mother (or father) not maintain custody?

    I just did a google search on the dad's name. Do it yourself. He's got a handful of mugshots in Florida. One of the charges is especially interesting.
