Adam Herrman DA says, hold your horses

The prosecutor involved in the Adam Herrman case says it may be months before she decides to file charges against anyone (meaning: his adoptive “parents”) in his disappearance.

Good, sez I. The Herrmans would be facing very serious charges, possibly murder, and this isn’t something you should rush into. You need time to put a solid case together or they could get off. And it doesn’t seem like they’re going anywhere in the meantime. (I do wonder how they are surviving in the community. I bet they’re getting, at minimum, a lot of dirty looks.) I think the best policy in a case like this is to, as they say, “make haste slowly.”

    Festina lente, yes, but one is hard-pressed to imagine justice ever being served in this sad case.

    Just charge and prosecute on the Federal fraud charges (bankruptcy fraud), and whatever charges the state of Kansas has to make related to the adoption benefit fraud. That could tie them up in court and jails for years, and maybe Adam’s body will be found in the meantime. I sure do hope, as a taxpayer, that whoever was responsible for making sure that he EXISTED while those payments were being made has lost his or her job.

    I still say that the boy is buried under one of the walls or walks built by Doug Herrman, a brickmason. I believe that Valerie Herrman did something to the boy, and that Doug buried the evidence–set Adam in stone.

      Your guess is as good as mine.
