Unsolved Child Murders And Deaths
I heard today that the case of Adam Walsh has been closed. A drifter who died in prison 12 years ago has been determined to be Adam's killer.
I am both sad and happy for John Walsh, Adam's dad. John is the head of America's Most Wanted. I have great respect for him and his mission.
Pictures of Adam, John and Adam's killer are below.
The reason I am writing this hub is Jonathan; my 23 month old grandson who was killed June 23rd, 2007.
Here is a special site I made in Jonathan's memory:
I have been thinking a lot about Jonathan lately. I still haven't heard anything from Laclede county prosecuter Angie Hemphill Wright.
Our case is a whole lot different than Adam's. You can take a look at the pictures at the right to get an idea of the loving boy we lost much to early in life. My heart aches daily. How long does it take to get the justice Jonathan deserves?
The video below was put on you-tube by a good friend of mine. It is an older interview done of me by Angie Weidinger of Both Fox 27 and channel 10 news in Springfield, Missouri.
I am going to point out some other child death cases in this hub that have not been solved. If you have ideas or information that may be relevant to any of these cases, please contact the proper authorities or even contact me and I will.
We need to protect the children. Children are our Future!
This 9 year old was fatally shot almost 4 years ago in a Washington D.C. neighborhood.
Donte and some other children were playing and it was somewhat late. A man pulled a handgun and started firing. There were many witnesses, but despite large rewards, no one has come forward.
If you have info call:
Peggy Chappell was only 6 years old when she was raped, beaten and stabbed to death in Alabama in the year 1993. Her claims to know who abducted her child, and says the man had taken Peggy before but always brought her back safely. The mother refuse to identify the individual to authorities. $10,000 reward for information.
The last time Amber Hagerman's mom saw her alive was 8 minutes before a man called 911 to report seeing a man snatch the girl off her bike. Four days later, her body was found nude. Her throat had been slit. The abductor was a white or Hispanic man driving a dark truck. The crime happened in the Dallas area of Texas in the year 1996. The "Amber Alert" was started in memory of her to let the public know when a child is abducted.
13-year-old Cynteria Phillips was found nude on August 15, 2000. She was found behind Edison high school in Miami, Florida. Police believe the killer lived near the location in which she was found. Cynteria obviously put up a fight with her attacker, as her body was badly bruised. $115,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
Just a Few
I am barely putting a dent in the amount of unsolved child murders. What is wrong with these people. In many cases many of these killers were released from prison for other murders. Why do we let some of these people out of prison. Anyone who murders a child, in my opinion, should NEVER get a second chance.
The poll below is to get a discussion going. If you have had a child murdered or are related in some way to a victim or the criminal, lets discuss these issues. What should be done? Children are being murdered daily right here in the United States. Let's here your views!!

It was the same thing day in and day out. Go to school and do follow the material that had boredom written all over it. I wanted something more; something with substance.
This hub describes the different political parties and their views. Written before the last Presidential election, it still gives people insight. Updated now for the most current Presidential election
