As you all probably know, Peter Kema Jr‘s parents, Peter Kema Sr. and Jaylin Kema, have been charged with his murder. Well, I have just read comments Peter Boy’s siblings made to the media about the indictments, and it’s pretty heartbreaking.
Peter Boy’s younger sister is referred to as “Devalynn” in his Charley Project casefile; she later changed her name to Lina Acol. (She was sent to live with her maternal grandparents after Peter Boy’s disappearance, and was legally adopted by them.) She was only four years old when her brother disappeared but she remembers what happened. In the last few years she’s renewed her relationship with her mother, hoping Jaylin would tell her what really happened to Peter Boy. Lina even allowed Jaylin to spend time with her son. I can’t imagine how hard that must have been.
This is such an awful case. So many kids who are abused have literally no one who really cares about them. Peter wasn’t one of those kids. He had grandparents who cared about him and his siblings and would have taken them in if they could have.
I hope Jaylin flips on Peter Sr. and testifies against him. That seems like the best way to win this case.
