YOU CAN HELP SUPPORT CHARLES IN HIS EFFORTS TO OBTAIN RECORDS CONCERNING THE MURDER OF HIS BROTHER BY A FOSTER CARE PROVIDER – PLZ SIGN THIS PETITION:
At age 4 Charles was placed into foster care with his 2 year old brother, Eddie. Prior to the arrival of the brothers, another boy had been killed while in the care of the foster mother. Despite this, DHS never took any action against the foster mother and allowed more children to be placed into her case. Charles and his brother were both abused by the foster mother, and after just 13 days of being placed in the home, Eddie was murdered. The foster mother was never held accountable for her actions, the case was dropped without criminal charges being filed.
Charles has fought for decades to gain access to records surrounding the death of his brother, which was covered up by police and social services who initially claimed the death never happened.
