Adoptive Parents Could Face Murder Charges

The adoptive parents of a boy, missing for the past ten years, could face murder charges, according to the county prosecutor.

Adam Herrman went missing ten years ago when he was 11-years-old, but was never reported missing until recently. While no body has been found, investigators believe it is highly possible Adam is dead and consider his adoptive parents primary suspects. Even though there is no body or physical evidence, Butler County Attorney Jan Satterfield said he hasn't ruled out filing first degree murder and child abuse charges against the parents.

I hope the conscience of the people who were suppose to keep tabs on this boy and failed him will never sleep again. I hope the people that hurt/murdered him will burn in hell

Both the state adoption system AND the federal bankruptcy court could have uncovered these frauds, with just A LITTLE DUE DILIGENCE. They operate these giveaways on THE HONOR SYSTEM, FCS, and they pay bags like these to commit their crimes that cost all of us dearly. The gov’t took Adam, and his siblings, claiming that THE STATE could do better, if only they’d be given free rein to plunder our wallets. THE STATE paid Valerie Hermann to abuse this boy, apparently, and nobody checked, for SEVEN YEARS, NOBODY EVEN CHECKED ON HIS EXISTENCE.

The FEDS have the ability to access records of state assistance payments, and they could have discovered the Hermanns’ failure to report those assistance payments (and it sounds as if they were receiving a lot more than just the $700 a month for ADAM, as they had other adoptive children), but they didn’t even check. The bankruptcy court doesn’t even verify SS#s, and I know that for a fact, as the victim of a debtor who went to them with a phoney SS#. I HAD TO TELL THEM.

Doug Hermann is a brick layer. I’m predicting that Adam Hermann is set in stone somewhere under one of Doug’s projects, something he built in mid-1999. It shouldn’t be that difficult to find the wall, or walk—just ask the locals.
