Read the story below and tell me what you think.
The body of 2-year old Devon Davis was found, ending several days of an intensive search.
The boy's body was found shortly after the search was officially called off in a lake near his home. A DPS helicopter was checking a lake less than a mile from his home one last time when searchers spotted something.
"We have located Devon Davis in a large body of water nearby his home," Capt. Rex Evans with the Liberty County Sheriff's Office said. "Devon is deceased."
Investigators think Devon simply wandered away from his home and ended up in the lake.
Once the discovery was made, state troopers closed the road leading to the Davis' home and the lake.
Earlier in the day, a remote control airplane with photography capabilities flew over the lake and spotted something. The DPS helicopter was checking that out when searchers found Devin's remains. After that, Texas Equusearch founder Tim Miller walked Devon's mother, April Davis, to the back of the yard where Capt. Evans told her that Devon was gone.
"It's difficult. I spent a lot of time with April out here over the last three days, a lot of time and I've gotten very very close to April," Miller said. "We were determined not to give up and it was actually at the end of the search... I don't know why it happened like that."
"Every time it's heartbreaking," Evans said. "They're all very devastated right now."
Earlier in the day, April Davis was in relatively good spirits, heading out with Miller to hand out hundreds of flyers bearing her son's picture and information.
An Amber Alert was issued for Davis on Tuesday. Liberty County sheriff's deputies said Devon wandered off into a wooded area while his mother and 1-year-old sister were napping at their new home in the Sam Houston Lake Estates area near Tarkington at about 3:30 p.m.
Davis said she found the door open and her son was gone. Investigators said Davis told them that Devon opened a latch on the door.
Searchers spent days looking for the toddler. Before the discovery was made, searchers used a drone to try to look for signs as to where he may be.
"The best benefit of that is unmanned and it can fly for hours," Evans said. "Whereas the aircraft that we've been able to have come over can only stay for a short amount of time."
The drone is a remote-controlled miniature plane with cameras that will fly around and take pictures of the area.
Davis appealed to the public for help on Friday. It was the first time she spoke to the media.
"I'm April. I'm Devon's mom. If you know anything, if you've seen anything, please just call somebody. Bring him home with me. He needs to be home with his family. Somebody has to know something, somewhere. Please, help me find my son," April Davis said.
Davis indicated that she thought someone had her son.
"If you're scared, I understand there's a lot of stuff going on," she said. "Do the right thing. Bring him to the hospital. Call somebody. People do not vanish. There is something out there and somebody knows something, somebody saw something somewhere. Please find him. Please help me."
Two sources close to the search and investigation told KPRC Local 2 Friday that Davis failed parts of a polygraph test. The sources declined to elaborate on which parts where failed. They stressed that does not mean anything nefarious happened and polygraphs can be imperfect, especially since Davis is in a very emotional state.
"He is the sweetest child you could ever meet," Davis said of Devon. "He's happy, he's friendly. He's a good kid."
Officials and volunteers searched several days by air, land and water, but found nothing. On Thursday, Liberty County officials said the search changed to a recovery mission, meaning that they don't expect to find the boy alive.
Capt. Rex Evans said he had to have a difficult talk with Devon's parents Thursday morning.
"There is a negative end to this that you kind of have to prepare yourself for," said Evans.
Texas EquuSearch has used sonar devices to look for Devon.
"The problem with doing the sonar is there's just so much debris underneath the water," Miller said. "You get a false image and you have to go back over it two or three times to determine what it is."]
Why is it his fault? According to a chicken shit xtian minister that child was disobedient and therefore he was punished by G'd.
Excuse me? A two year old does not know the difference between right and wrong. My heart goes out to this family.
So what, your issue is with him, not a dead child and his family. Do you really think that they're fair game?
Where does it say that I have an issue with his family? If you are upset about the title, man up and say so.
If you cannot man-up which you have not been able to do. Go bother someone else. Go see someone about your OCD.
Personal attacks, name-calling, yes, …typical.
How about addressing the fact that you're exploiting this family's tragedy to publicly settle a private conversation, …to what purpose?
Are you sending this minister a link?
Give us his name and email address, …at least then it would make sense.
I did cite it. Now in the order your wanted it. FF$.
Do you know what a cite is?
Read my post on the second page, 4th post on the bottom. As I have said earlier, this was a personal conversation where this "minister" told me about the child's death and I commented that my heart goes out to this family.
"I commented that my heart goes out to this family."
Words/actions don't match.
And yours does?
As I have said before time and time again, I apologized for not saying this was a conversation between me and the preacher at the time I wrote the post. I was not being deceitful, yet you are calling me that. Sorry that I am not christ like like you where one can actually make a mistake.
so I will give you a run down on how the conversation came up.
I was hired to tutor the son of this minister in Algebra and Physics. The story of finding this child came through his Android news app. When the minister announced they found the child's body, I said that my heart goes out to his family. That's when the minister said that because he was disobedient and therefore was punished by G'd.
If one was astute to read that I said, a toddler does not know the difference between right from wrong. Now where does it say in my original post that I was being judgmental? I may have worded my post wrong, so please forgive me for not being christ like in your eyes, which I don't care about.
As for my comment, please go through all of the pages on this site and see where there have been other posts about conservations and ministers passing judgment on other people. Where were you when a poster wrote a post about a young woman who has mental problems and her mother was passing judgment on her daughter?
So while you are pointing a finger at me, you are pointing three at your self. Now my question is where are you now, calling me names, while you are doing the same thing? Where were you in the past when other posts were made?
My so-called response in antipathy towards the preacher, it is against his comment. Now you, I show antipathy, just like you show antipathy toward me.
"I was not being deceitful"
Actually, that's all I see, look at what you're claiming of me, without citing BTW, do realize that; unlike a "personal conversation" anybody can look at what I wrote, and your libelous misinterpretation of it and SEE how deceitful it is.
Again, your battle is with this minister, why drag this poor family into it, …do you really think it lends you credibility to do so?
Do you not see the blatant hypocrisy?
No, but I see yours.
