Stepfather of missing toddler charged

By Washington Post editors

The stepfather of a missing Roanoke toddler has been charged with felony child neglect and improper disposal of a human body, according to WJLA.

Roanoke police said Brandon Lockett, 24, contacted them on Jan. 14 and reported that his stepson, 2-year-old Aveion Malik Lewis had been abducted by three men. Police now say there was no abduction and that they believe Aveion was dead before Lockett called police.

Police continue to search near the Roanoke River for Aveion's body.

As suspected and posted here, there was a lot more to the story than first reported.

I wish women could be taught that their children are not safe with the men in their lives.

Another single momma who shacks up with a violent male. At least this is one less GOP voter in 2010, once this guy's in jail.

Imagine the life this poor child had with this POS father. At least he no longer suffers. Rest in peace Aveion.
