    Exactly !!!!!!
    Maybe the local chief of police didn't think it was 'important'.
    Smdh.

    (( Hugs))

    Same to both posts.
    I am outraged. What incompetent fools some people are.

    Press Conference - Tuesday, January 14, 2020

    Chief Hickman:
    • Harley Dilly was recovered last evening at 507 Fulton St
    • Multiple leads were exhausted. Yesterday afternoon, a repeated canvas of the neighborhood, led investigators to the house. House has previously been checked multiple times
    • Windows were locked, doors secured, lockbox on rear door, no evidence of forced entry
    • Pursued entry into the house
    • Entered at 16:10 hours and searched
    • Harley's coat, glasses were discovered on second floor, next to brick chimney
    • Discovered Harley caught in chimney
    • Family notified and it appears to be accident
    • No foul play expected, autopsy being conducted this morning
    • Appears Harley climbed antenna tower to roof and entered chimney
    • Once in the chimney, glasses and jacket were pushed from the chimney through a flue into the second floor of the house
    • Chimney was blocked between second and first floor and trapped Harley
    • Chimney is 9x13 inches in size
    Questions:
    • At one point did you enter house for the first time? - "That would be yesterday at 16:10 hours."
    • Any discussion about going into that particular house in the last couple weeks? - "Again, through the course of the beginning of the investigation, the house was secured, there was no sign of forced entry, and it was actually double locked. So nothing led us to believe that anyone was inside the house."
    • What led you back to this house? - "Again, with any investigation, we start back from the beginning, and just re-canvas everything that has already been checked."
    • What led you upstairs? - "We cleared the house to make sure no one was in there, and through that, once we got to the second floor, we noticed the coat and the glasses"
    • Who owns the house? - "Um, at this time, I've got no comment on that.
    • Do you believe he threw the glasses/coat down or they fell down or? - "Right now, this is an ongoing investigation and the coat and glasses were outside the flue of the chimney."
    • How long do you believe Harley was in the house? - "Again, I can't comment on that because we still have no determination from the coroner."
    • Did dogs search around the house? - "K9 units were used the entire time that Harley has been missing. From multiple agencies."
    • "Did those homeowners come home in the past four weeks?" - "It is a summer home that they are currently remodeling."
    • Did the Dilly's have any relationship with the owners? - "Not that I am aware of."
    • Are you aware of Harley ever being in the house? - "Not that I am aware of."
    • Any video or surveillance that led you there? - "The video surveillance that we got came from next to the house. And that's the photo we shared on our Facebook page."
    • Is it the working belief that that was Harley Dilly seen in the surveillance video Friday morning? - "Yes."
    • "What spurred you to go back to that house?" - "Well, again, I think I've answered that already. We were re-canvassing the areas we had already searched and we noticed the house. Everything was secured, we had no reason to believe anybody was in the house. There was no forced entry. It was deadbolted and locked. We had to get two keys to actually enter the house from the homeowner."
    • What is the family's state of mind? - "I'm gonna try to answer that the best I can. What would your state of mind be if you lost your 14 year old? I can't put words to that, can you?"

    Damn right.
    Esp. the 'don't trespass on anyone's property' bit.
    Almost like they (local LE, not TES or outside agencies) knew something ?
    Heartbreaking to think that if they'd searched that place early on, Harley would still be alive.

    Eta : Accident or not, if they'd looked for Harley that Friday night instead of going out to eat 35 miles away --he'd still be alive.
    He could've been stuck in that chimney but wouldn't have died yet.

    If they'd checked that house before as the chief of police stated, they'd have found him.
    Lazy and inept.

    I'm gobsmacked. Harley climbed the antenna tower and entered through the chimney. His jacket and glasses were pushed through a flue into the second floor. The chimney was blocked between second and first floor, which trapped him.

    Oh. My. God. Harley. I am so sorry! And I don't believe they checked "multiple" times, either.

    "Thorough" investigation? Not when a child has been there over a month and you just found him yesterday. They knew how smart he was. They did NOT search that home.

    They're saying it appears to be an accident pending the autopsy.
    The chimney was 9 x 13"
    Glasses and coat pushed through the chimney to the second floor.
    He has said "ongoing investigation" several times.

    How terribly sad, what a tragedy. :( He pushed his coat and glasses through the chimney and he was stuck between the 1st and 2nd floor.
    May he rest in peace.
