“Calif. town relieved as manhunt ends for child killer, stunned at arrest of girl’s brother”
“FOLLOW-UP TO YESERDAY’S POST: I do NOT like most “labels”, as they are far too often used to “pigeon-hole” rather than to adequately and accurately “describe”. But, being a Child Psych major, one word keeps coming to my mind…..Sociopath.
“Last month’s stabbing death of Leila Fowler…set off an intense manhunt. Her brother was in the home at the time and told police he saw a man run from the scene.
…the boy appeared with his father and stepmother at a vigil for his sister…as speculation…that…the boy was involved, his biological mother told…television…her son “could never hurt his sister.”
…that day, police announced…the boy had been arrested and faced homicide charges.
Police released no information about what led them to arrest the boy. Leila’s brother told police he found his sister’s body and encountered an intruder in the home while their parents were at a Little League game. He described the man as tall with long gray hair.”
