Sigh. Another one.

Five-year-old Jeremiah Oliver has been missing from Fitchburg, Massachusetts for over six months…and no one noticed until now. This in spite of the fact that the family had a social worker that was supposed to be keeping an eye on them all. (She’s been fired.) The police are treating it as a potential homicide.

I don’t know what to say but what I have said before.

I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for the town of Fitchburg; that was my beloved author Robert Cormier’s stomping grounds and I’ve been to Fitchburg State University twice to research his writing and his life.
