    I just don't understand why people impersonate grown missing children! DNA is going to rule them out. Why do they go through knowing that? Is it to get 15 minutes of infamy? A copycat imposter of Frédéric Bourdin? Who got away with impersonating Nick Barclay for longer than he should have regardless of the fact he had different hair/eye colors and accent.

    P
    Prob had someone chasing after him, is my guess & he had this story already created for his next run in with the law.
    There will be many more, imo.

    In this picture he appears to have heterochromia iridium, one brown eye and one blue eye. Which is interesting as yesterday it was pointed out that one photo showed brown eyes and one showed blue. I am ready for my annual eye checkup so I could just be seeing things.

    Edit for spelling

    “CINCINNATI -- The man who told police he was a missing boy from Illinois when he was found in Newport, Kentucky on Wednesday, is now being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center on an FBI detainer, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

    Brian Michael Rini, 23, was booked into the jail at 11:10 p.m. Thursday, according to the jail's website.

    It's not yet clear what charges Rini could face, and authorities don't know why Rini claimed to be Timmothy Pitzen, a boy who has been missing since 2011.

    I was wondering how much time elapsed between the last two times she was seen on video, the last time without him... how far could she have driven in that time and what areas are concealed enough to put him?
    I really want to believe he’s alive and well somewhere though.

    I think that there is an approximate 6 hour window between when her phone records showed she contacted her family (while north of Sterling, IL) and when she was seen alone on video in the dollar store in Winnebago, IL.
    I would like to believe that in those three days they were together, she wanted to give Timmothy as many happy memories as she could of them together before she handed him over to people who would love him so much, that they cannot bear to give him back now.

    When found, due to complaint of abdominal pain and obvious physical trauma, he was taken to the Children’s Hospital.

    On Wed., an FBI agent spoke to BMR, told him she was an FBI agent. He identified as TP, gave her details about how he had been abducted, suffered physical and sexual abuse, and that he’d just recently escaped.
