Today begins two glorious days off. In fact, it is the first time in a month where my days off haven’t been occupied with college visits or hospital stays. As such, I am doing nothing today or tomorrow. Literally. Nothing. I will, of course, be posting, but I’m trying to rest the heart a bit before going back to work. In the meantime, here’s a smorgasbord of news which I found interesting.
This is the case we walked into at 7am yesterday. There are no words.
Police on Tuesday found the body of a 2-year-old child partially buried in a wooded section of Kemble Park in Philadelphia’s Ogontz section.
Homicide Capt. John Ryan told reporters that officers went to the park after the female caregiver of the 2-year-old went to police late Monday and led them to the park. Police used cadaver dogs in the predawn hours Tuesday to look for the remains and called in the Crime Scene Unit and the Medical Examiner’s Office after daylight.
Ryan said the body had been partially buried with the top of the head exposed. He indicated the remains had been there for some time.
People are savages. This “caretaker” took a week to report the child missing. A week. Let that sink in…
