Thanks bunches to everyone who has expressed support for our family as we had our meeting with the DA’s office yesterday. For obvious reasons, we can’t comment specifically on anything related to the investigation, including how the meeting went. However, I want to once again express that I trust and fully expect that the authorities will vigorously pursue justice for Henry, and much more importantly, work to make sure that those involved in my child’s assault and overdose are prevented from hurting anyone else’s child in our community. This remains our family’s expectation, and we will continue to offer our support to all of the hard working folks who are handling the case within the Knox County Sheriff’s Office and the DA’s office. Their jobs are not easy ones, we know, and this isn’t their only case, even if it is the only case that matters this much to me.
While our expectations are high and are based on the confidence we have in KCSO and the DA’s office, we will never rest until we are convinced that no investigative or legal stone is left unturned in the series of events that led to our son’s death. If for any reason – and again, let me be clear that we don’t expect this – we do not ultimately feel that authorities have pursued the case as thoroughly as possible, Henry’s father and I will need all the support we can get as we would then take a more proactive role in lobbying for a more complete investigation and potential prosecution.
That’s really all I can say for now, which is difficult, but the right thing to do. We have to let the authorities do their jobs, and we continue to be assured by those in charge that they are.
Thanks everyone. Please don’t forget about Henry’s case, even if we can’t say anything about how it’s going for a while.
