    Just a little insite... his girlfriend knew everything that had been going on and the police have had statements from a few people regarding this situation. They have been dealing with court and visitation for a few months now. He had been running and hidding from the law as well as stalking the children and family they had been staying with. As far as Im concerned she should be charged with just as much as he is seeing how he was living with her and she choose him over her own daughter and the safety of her family. To top it off not only has this just happened it had been going on since she was 11.

    Subsitute parent, Guess he was left alone with his G/F daughter, last June 2009. What took so long? Guess the mother was totally unaware?. He is homeless? Must have thrown his butt out...

    I bet he wears white Reebok high-tops, black jeans and 80's hair band shirts.

    I love stories like this where they post the picture and the guy totally looks the part. I see him and I think "Yep, can totally see it." Is that bad?
