Investigation Into Detroit Boy's Disappearance Focuses on Parents

Post by sofieellis on 27.06.14 15:30

The parents of a Detroit boy who went missing for a dozen days before turning up in his own basement has been described as persons of interest in the case, police told ABC News.
Charlie Bothuell V, 12, is out of the hospital after his Wednesday rescue and investigators have not allowed him to have contact with his father, Charlie Bothuell IV, and stepmother Monique Dillard-Bothuell, who reportedly live in a multi-unit condo.
Dillard-Bothuell was taken into custody Thursday, arrested on a bench warrant for an unrelated case, police said. Child Protective Services has also gotten involved, taking two young children belonging to Bothuell IV and Dillard-Bothuell, officials said.
Police and FBI officials are questioning the boy and his parents, searching for answers into his disappearance. Bothuell and his wife have not responded to media requests for comment.

At this point, the boy is staying with his biological mother.
Bothuell IV reported the boy missing June 14. Officers had searched the home on at least three occasions since then, but he wasn’t found until Wednesday, barricaded behind a 55-gallon barrel that police say he couldn’t have moved on his own.
Police also found bedding, soda bottles and cereal in the basement, along with a blood-stained PVC pipe in the home. Police say they do not believe the boy was in the basement area the whole time.
Information about the boy’s rescue emerged as his father spoke on live TV with HLN’s Nancy Grace. As Grace discussed the developing reports, Bothuell breathed in and out deeply, silent for 10 seconds.
“What?” he said.
More silence. Bothuell clutched his chest and held up his hand, struggling with his words.
“I checked my basement, the FBI checked my basement, Detroit Police checked my basement, my wife checked my basement, I’ve been down there seven times,” he said. “We’ve all been checking.”
Bothuell grew defiant and began crying in later interviews outside his house.
“I love my son, I’m glad he’s home and he’s going to have a great future he deserves to have,” he said.
For Grace, details about the household’s parenting style, including a strict exercise regime, are puzzling. She still isn’t sure what to make of the situation.
“I still don’t believe the father knew he was in the basement,” she said today in an appearance on “Good Morning America.” “Why else would he contact authorities?”

Blood and cadaver alerts
dismissed by UK Government

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
