Special report on the Christian Ferguson disappearance

This report was written last March, but I only just found it now. It’s an indepth-report on the life and disappearance of Christian Ferguson, a severely disabled nine-year-old boy who was supposedly abducted when his father’s car was carjacked in 2003. He was never found and his case remains unsolved to this day.

This report is quite long but well-worth reading. Frankly, it’s absolutely heartbreaking. The police believe Christian’s father, Dawan, allowed his son to die slowly of his medical conditions rather than risk losing him to his ex-wife. The poor child had been undermedicated for months before his disappearance, had his gastric feeding tube ripped out of him, and was reportedly so malnourished as to be skeletal. The poor boy couldn’t take care of himself at all, he couldn’t talk, couldn’t swallow, couldn’t use the toilet, could barely walk, there was nothing he could do for himself. He was completely dependent on others, and all the others failed him.

Stories like this make me want to go out and hit somebody.

    It takes a certain type of individual person to do what he did. The word sociopath comes to mind. I hope the other inmates in the prison he is incarcerated steal his food away from him to the point where he is too weak to function.

    I read most of the story (long) from the article you mentioned. Sounds like the mom did all she could to prevent this, but no one listened to her. I feel sooo sorry for her and he sweet boy.

    ..the sad thing is….he has rights and if he is not fed, he can create trouble. This happened in Georgia. A couple starved their baby son to death but in prison the dad complained they didn’t have the food he was used to eating on his vegan diet so he was starving.
    I doubt these guys have normal thinking and it’s so very selfish of them, huh?!

    So, Dawan gets away with Murder? Unbelievable, as a Grandparent of a severley disabled 9 year old it makes me physically, mentally and spiritualy sick to know that he breathes among us. Karma has a way with folks like this.

      Dawan gets away with murder NOW. But Christian’s body may turn up. Someone may talk. There is no statute of limitations on murder; they could prosecute him when he’s ninety-eight and toothless if they wanted to.
