Charges pending in Adam Herrman case?

The police think they now have enough evidence to charge Adam Herrman’s adoptive parents in his disappearance, although they don’t say what charges they have in mind. I’m so glad. The cops have presented the case to the prosecuting attorney to set the wheels in motion. I really, really, really hope the DA jumps on this. Of course I didn’t expect the Herrmans to get away scot-free, but I’m relieved to know something seems to be happening here at last.

At minimum, we’re looking at some serious fraud charges, for all the money they took from the state under false pretenses. The Herrmans admitted to it, so that should be no problem. I have no idea how much time you get for that, but it should keep them on ice for a little while. However, I’m guessing the cops are thinking more about child abuse charges or even murder.

Alycia Mesiti identified

To no one’s surprise, the body found buried in Alycia Mesiti’s backyard has been identified as…Alycia Mesiti. Thanks to Annie Keller for sending me that article. Her father, who has been arrested on drug charges, is considered a possible suspect in her death. No surprise to me. When a person is found buried in someone’s backyard, you naturally focus on the people who lived on the property.

May she rest in peace. I hope her murderer is quickly brought to justice.

*toots her own horn*

A lady from a newspaper in Massachusetts contacted me today and we did a short interview. She said she might mention me and Charley in her article. Yay!

In other news, the computer did the refuse-to-start thing again today. I decided to try alternatives besides the Startup Repair thing that erased all my software. And lo, I found System Restore, which restores the comp to a previous date, and that worked without me having to reinstall everything!
