Meet Johnny

Isn’t he cute? Johnny D is about four years old, black hair, a little over three feet tall, and weighs around 30 pounds. He was found wearing a navy blue shirt with three buttons, navy blue pants, and a jacket.

Genetically, he is described as “East Asian/American Indian derived from Hispanic or tribal Indian heritage; not black.”

A couple of other not-so-minor details about Johnny…His body was found two years ago in a blue canvas laundry bag and no one has stepped forward to identify him or tell what happened to him.

They held a funeral for Johnny Doe this week in DuPage County Illinois.

Somewhere the people who know all about Johnny are thinking they got away with it. If they are even following the story, they figure that any evidence linking them to the crime would have been traced by now.

But they are wrong. Someone knows his killers and every detail about what they did. Someone has already held the trial. And here’s what He had to say at the sentencing hearing about the disgusting person who cast aside little Johnny Doe: “It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”

The punishment may be delayed, but it will happen just as certainly as the sun rises in the east.

  1. This ranks up there with the baby they found in the dumpster in Rolling Meadows a few years back. Just deplorable the things people do to children. As a new parent, when I read about this, I went home and hugged my son for dear life. As a rational thinking adult, I was horrified. I hope they can find SOMEthing to link the piece of dog crap that did this and let justice be served.

    The things we do to our children...
