    Have I mentioned today how much it absolutely destroys me to watch a child's last moments alive? I feel the need to watch it and then it makes me not be able to breathe as I watch. Poor baby. You did such a good job crossing that road, baby. Making sure no cars were coming. Good job. You were a sweet, responsible, little boy. You will forever be that.

    Sadly, I think you are totally right about the difficult mental health issues and the mess we have in our lack of being able to treat it in our society. I am highly aware of all of the ineptness. My younger brother was diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic when he was 22. And he is now 60. The past 20 years he has been pretty stable and on meds that seem to work well.

    But if it had not been for my Mother's gift of advocacy and stubbornness, I don't know what would have happened to him. He was let down by and failed by so many clinics over the first 20 years of his issues. My mother INSISTED that doctors continue trying to find the right combo of meds and she hounded my brother, in a loving way, to keep taking them.

    He was in a few halfway houses. Those people who had emotional support from friends or family did much better then those who were only depending upon the doctors/ :mad:

    This is an unthinkable crime. There have been others in the news recently. Something is very, very wrong lately. I would say there's an air of the demonic about some of these atrocities.

    On Thursday, police released new surveillance video and photos of the suspect. A man in the video can be seen running near where the boy was stabbed.


    Houston Police Department Lt. John McGalin said the video led to a tip about another video, which led investigators to Jackson. He said a distinctive jacket that was worn by the man in the videos was found with Jackson, who "provided a statement that corroborated a lot of things we knew to be true and led us to believe we have the right guy."

    ETA I still have the same question I had since the day little Josue was taken. Why? FGS - just why?

    I love this SO MUCH!!!! " “During the time students are going to school and coming back, we will get outside of our homes, stand in the yard, sit on our porches, and watch them,” said Walters.

    Walters says nearly 100 community members have signed up and are being trained by the city on how to ID a suspect and render first aid. ''

    I am really impressed with the community and how it has taken this horrific loss and turned it into something that continues to honor Josue by finding ways to safeguard other children.

    New physical evidence found in Josue Flores' murder: sources

    HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston police sources tell ABC13 Eyewitness News that investigators have discovered new physical evidence in the 2016 murder of 11-year-old Josue Flores.

    This news comes nearly a month after Houston police stood with Josue's family on the three-year anniversary of his death, vowing to find the boy's killer.

    Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said in May that advances in DNA technology could help point to Josue's killer.

    In 2016, charges were dropped due to inconclusive DNA evidence against a man police still consider the only suspect.
