Discussion in 'Crimes-Spotlight on Children' started by Donjeta, Oct 6, 2012.
So confused about the levels of alerts with the three kids in this family. The toddler was missing and the body is found buried. That dead child would have been three years old if still alive. Child services was alerted about a 6 year old and now the father tried abducting the oldest kid? WTH?
Sounds like he was going to grab his son and run when he heard the dead child had been found, but got caught.
It doesn't sound like authorities knew the toddler was missing to begin with.
Sounds like he was buried in the backyard and never reported missing or dead.
This was a blurb on the news last night - heard something about someone, possibly other family, calling about not seeing the baby for awhile.
Body of 17-month-old who went missing more than 2 years ago found buried in backyard where family lived
Rodriguez and the dead boy’s mother, Heather Kowalczik, had two older sons: R, 9, and A, 6. Heather was the mother of the dead child, but Rodriguez was not Justin’s father.
Thanks for clearing things up for me. I can't believe they had the nerve to host a birthday party for one of the kids while poor Justin was rotting in the ground and discarded. wow. JMO
How can a baby disappear and noone reports it for 2 years??? I just can't stand it!
That is strange that nobody noticed that the child is missing.
:waitasec: It took them 2 years to notice that the child is missing :waitasec:
I think they knew. Only said something when they felt they had to. WHAT took this long for them to say something?
Kowalczik told the Post that Rodriguez was abusive and had "barricaded" her in the house.
Well did the neighbors know about Justin (usually a child is named after it is born) or did they just see Heather preggo and forget about it? This stinks. Poor Justin.
Where was the family of either parent? They must have known about a 17 month old toddler who suddenly wasn't around?
How sad for the remaining children, I wonder if they had any idea?
The family's been evicted.
Update from 2014:
My guess would be since the 17 month old was not her boyfriend's son, he singled him out for abuse and she was too weak to do the right thing. Now they have each other and can live in filth in peace, I guess.
RIP, Justin. Prayers for the two living children.
Surely this can't be the end of it - a dead child buried in the back yard?
Let's hope they can get to the bottom of it before another child is killed CPS will be able to keep their existing children from them, but if they conceal another pregnancy... Or start babysitting for the neighbours!
Rest in peace, Justín...
