    not much info, who else was in the home at the time of the fire? Did everyone else make it out okay? Odd the lack of detail. Gonna keep my eye on this one.

    OKLAHOMA CITY -
    The death of a 7-year-old boy who'd been left home alone has been ruled a homicide after police found evidence the house was burglarized before the fire that claimed the boy's life started.

    Firefighters say no one else was in the home at the time of the fire. Adrian's mother and her boyfriend arrived at the house round 2 a.m.

    The boy's father arrived at the scene around 6 a.m., and he was extremely upset.
    Adrian's 2-year-old brother was with his grandfather at the time of the fire.

    This whole story is fishy. Was the break in and fire to cover up something that was done to Adrian? Why was the two year old brother with the grandfather and Adrian was not? Lots of questions here.

    Wow, there has to be more to this than a burglary, and why is a 7 year old at home by himself at night?

    yeah, seems a bit unusual that the 7yr old was home alone and a burglar just happened to pick that house, kill him and set a fire.

    sitting back awaiting more on this one but from what little is out there right now. Hinky stinky too much coinky dinky for me.

    Have no idea what the case may be here, but all too often, because of circumstances, the poor child babysits himself.

    So they left a 7 year old child at home so they could go to a bar. Ugh. I know they probably regret the decision now, but they should be held responsible. That's neglect, and that poor boy had to die alone. I still don't get the burglar(s) setting the house on fire, though. I wonder if they knew he was there. I find it hard to imagine he didn't hear anything though, with the burglars kicking the door in......

    I am so pleased that the two losers Cruz and Nevarez have been arrested for the death of little 7-yr. old boy Adrian. Now, I want to hear that his mother will be charged with child neglect and child endangerment for leaving him home by himself while she was out with her boyfriend until 2 a.m.

    Also, her 2-yr. old should be removed from her custody.
