"Last night, I did something that I do not regret. I leaked my phone number on livestreams and got called by streamers. I'm gonna leak my number in the title of this video. Now, if you wanna call me, just wait until after it is 2:30 in Ohio.... I'd be glad to talk to you and answer some questions. Don't forget, keep it kid-friendly because I'm only 12. So if you wanna call me, I guess you can call me this morning if you see the video quick enough"

"Yesterday, I had court. I got charged with menacing for scheduling a fight with a kid, showing him what I would do to him, and then selling tickets for the fight, and then telling him that the ticket holders will come after him if he did not go fight and um, I've already had problems with this kid before. It was I believe, November when we last had our problems, yeah November....I'm trying to change my ways"

Transcript of now deleted YouTube video on Harley's channel titled "Im scared..." from October 2018:

"What’s up? It is Harley Dilly. Probably one of the worst day of my life.

So, basically, I, um, was at school and I had a science test and I finished it and my computer says 1% battery left so I get to the next class and I put it on the charger as quick as possible but it didn’t charge. None of the computers would take a charge. So, I took it back and I had to fill out a complaint and that’s one of the most expensive parts of the computer and my mom said she’s not paying anything. That’s when I got home. So then, my mom wanted to go with her to go get a friend and I said “I don’t wanna, I have work to do so I wanna go home and stay.” She said no, we argued for about a good five minutes and then she snapped. She said she was gonna call the police and she said she already did. She said “who do you think that first call was to?” and she said it was the police, but I knew it wasn’t because she wouldn’t do that because I went to my school, I went to talk to my assistant principal because he’s like the only person I can really trust in this. So, I went to talk to him and he told me that my mom never called the police, so she lied to me to get me scared.

She locked me out of the house, so right now I’m outside, the house is locked. Um, it is 3:30pm, I haven’t ate anything and I still haven’t got to get my work done. My mom is gone, she won’t answer the phone. So right now, I’m the only one outside. I got nothin better to do, so what’s the point? So I thought I would stream this because I’m not doing a video of this.

I legit was scared because I thought I was gonna have to go to DH for 30 days because if I get another complaint to the police, I’m going to DH for 30 days. I mean, I’ve already took a YouTube leave, but I’m tryin to do stuff guys. If you knew what was going on in my life…

It’s just been a horrible week. I wish I could cram it all up and throw it in the trash can of eternity and just start writing a new story. But gotta stick with the story until tomorrow.

But not everything has been bad, school has been going great. But now I’m behind in grades. It’s too hard. Basketball is coming up, so. I don’t even know what to do anymore. I just wish I wasn’t outside. I wish I didn’t make all of these decisions.

I literally was balling out in tears because I thought I was about to have to go to the police station. And get taken away for 30 days, missing out on all my friends, my mentor, my teachers, school. I know a lot of people don’t like school but my opinion is school is the only place you can really be during the week, so you should use that time wisely.

I wish I was at my friends but my mom told me if I’m not here when she gets back there will be consequences. So, I’m hoping nothing bad happens. But I’m still going to stay on until my mom gets back. But guys…this is a very serious moment. I’m not even going to ask for likes and subscribes. I just want you guys to wish me good luck because the future could hold bad things for me. And I don’t want to find out what that can mean. That could mean me not going to Washington DC for my field trip. Which by the way, I was going to vlog that whole trip, so if you wanna have that happen…nah, I’m not gonna do it, I’m not gonna do it. I’ll do it at a later date but. I’m just so sad. Christmas is coming up and I’m trying to earn myself an Xbox 1, so I can play Fortnite with my friend James. You remember James, from that basketball video. Yeah.

*long pause and sigh*

You’re not going to see a lot of gameplay of games anymore. I saw those weren’t doing very good, so I stopped. But if you do want me to play a mobile game that you think would be fun to watch, leave a comment down below what you want because I’ll do it.

My mom is calling me, see you guys. Sorry. Bye."

His SM account is without a doubt unbelievable for his age. The post on Feb 18, 2019 "Playing Xbox With A Friend" was streamed live. He moves the camera angle in hour 5 when his mom comes home.

There are 2 people in the chat. He is taking to someone named James and he notices they are not alone. But before he realizes someone else is in the chat, he moons the camera.

This is a 7 plus hour long video. You can hear some interaction between him and his mom after hour 5. He is definitely literally over exposing himself on live SM.

When I originally saw this post, it had less than 20 views. It has now grown to over 245.

With all the media coverage on this kid and all the posts about his SM, if he didn't have a stalker before all this publicity on this case, when he does come back he is going to be further exposed and at risk.

I hope LE has a game plan for this kid and family to protect him. Maybe they should go ahead and take down his videos since he is being blasted on every SM site now. JMO

Harley states in one of his YouTube videos that he’s banned from the library for life. He doesn’t say why but explains he cant do Roblox anymore because of it. I believe it was titled “Bad News” (though I watched quite a few) On the older channel.

And if you follow the MSM links and read her FB post from last night, she starts it out with "Just I guess it's time I get on tv and talk..." because going on tv to try to find your missing 14-year-old son is such an annoying inconvenience I guess. :(

And you can read the rest of her bizarre post. She has made it about herself from the very beginning, she is extremely manipulative and it appears to me that she manipulates and gaslights Harley into some of his "bad behavior". Sadly I have known mothers like this, that's why it's so glaringly obvious to me. Notice all of her pleas for him to come home center on HIM coming home to make HER feel better. Including coming home to lay on top of her until she feels better (the Grandfather actually said this). WTH??

The dailymail posted his mom’s Facebook post. So I guess it’s ok to post. Here are snippets and attached is a shot of the post (dailymail posted it):

‘I have tried to protect him from all the pain in the world, but he is a teen and can't always be a momma's boy,’ she wrote.

‘I knew as he got older I would lose a little more of his attention but what I would give just to get that little bit now.

‘I can't bring myself to clean up things in his room, I didn't want to wash the dirty clothes from his room, and I refuse to put the tree and any Christmas stuff away...he didn't have his Christmas with us.’

The post continued: ‘Harley if you see this… please please come home, call someone, let us know you are alive and safe.

‘I leave my door open and stare outside looking at the road, the alley, the cars going by… are you in there, can you see us.

‘What if [sic] all the online and tv isn’t reaching you. You’ve been gone and NO one has seen you… where are you? Momma loves you...every night I sit on couch and try to stay awake for you...Just come home. Please.’

The real odd thing is the mother said he went missing between 6am - 7am of Fri 12-20.

But she later said she never "saw" him then only talked to him. Considering he lives four blocks from school, seems kind of early for him to leave.

The last verified account anyone has of him is 7pm on Thur 12-19 when he went to a friend's home and wanted to spend the night but the friend's parents told him to go home.

So he could've been missing anytime since then.

The parents originally said, he runs away so much, the didn't think nothing of it, in fact he wasn't reported missing till around midnight on Saturday, 41 hours after the mother claimed to last "hear" him.

If the parents aren't directly involved with his disappearance then they're surely the cause of it. He might have run away, got lost in the woods somewhere, and died of exposure. He might have run away and some opportunist creep saw a child walking alone and took him. He might have run away with somebody from the Internet. He might've seen no escape from his shitty home life and committed suicide as an escape. His body could have washed away in a river or something... There are any number of possibilities. But I do believe the parents are to blame. Either directly or indirectly.

I will admit that I am the perfect picture of a "lazy" parent. HOWEVER I battle migraines, my lovely parting gift from my stroke.

I had a few blood clots on my brain and a couple of them are still hanging out, but they aren't harmful since they are monitored. BUT, I know where my kids are AT ALL TIMES. I have help with my kids.

Due to my disability I not only have their father here (who works) I also have my parents (who are retired and old as hell) who help out. My mom is forever taking care of me. She says it's her job since she missed so much while she was working, either in the military or the jobs she had after that just to keep the family afloat.

My dad and my grandmother raised me, so ironically enough it's almost the same family dynamic I grew up with, EXCEPT I am present and I know where my kids are. My son wishes I wasn't a thorn in his butt, he's 18. I told him I don't care how old he is, he's FOREVER gonna be my baby boy, he's my 1st born, I was 19 when I had him and regardless of how old he is, I'm gonna check on him. He's currently still in high school and I continue to monitor him on Social Media

About the bathing habits: if HD had OCD, that command in his head to bathe is too powerful to overcome.

As a young person, I HAD to have a bath before I went to bed. It had nothing to do with cleanliness but everything to do with ritual. I missed many sleepovers because of it. And I'd go berserk if I didn't have it because then, in my head "something would go terribly wrong."

Perhaps that was the Chief's point. They knew HD was not hiding out because his bathing rituals were so strong. Those who have never experienced the chains of OCD will never understand what it is like.

I believe Harley was abducted or went with someone he didn't know as well as he thought he did. If not this scenario, then my thought process goes to suicide due to what appears to be depression.

I'm hoping we get answers soon, Harley has been gone too long and I don't see this as a rescue mission but a recovery

I was really disturbed by revealing such personal information about this child. Discussing/revealing someone’s bathroom habits is over the line.

I understand they may be asking the general public to keep an eye out for a bathroom obsessed kid, but I still think it was unnecessary, and humiliating to the child. That seems to be a trend with this case.

In my research into Harley Dilly, I have found a disturbing pattern in OHIO. It very well may happening in all of our states, but so far I've only been researching OHIO. (This is just a bit of what I have so far; I plan on posting more of my research over the weekend)

To give you an idea; the day HD went missing (DEC 20th) so did 4 other teen boys.

All the same race, all around the same age except one (Daylin Kitchen (11) who I believe is related to Daniel Kitchen...I'm still researching).

There are 9 other days in December that 3 or MORE teen boys went missing.

Some more information; Toledo is the 3rd LARGEST hub for human trafficking and is only an hour from the Canadian border by land. I have absolutely NO IDEA if these disappearances are related to HD or vice versa. This is just me putting out there what I see and what I've found hoping we bring these kids home and get them safe.

Ethan Banks (14 years old/white) - missing from Lebanon OHIO

Daniel Kitchen (15 years old/white) - missing from Grove City OHIO

Daylin Kitchen (11 years old/white) - missing from Columbus OHIO

Harley Dilly (14 years old/white) - missing from Port Clinton OHIO

I have been reading online studies about excessive screen time and teenage suicide risks. IMO, Harley spent an excessive amount of screen time online in the extreme sense. My thoughts are that Harley had a meltdown after his phone broke and had any electronic device taken away if true.

by Anonymousreply 8201/11/2020

Given the report that Harley’s broken and handed over phone roughly coincides with his disappearance and given that his SM activity on that phone was such a huge part of who Harley is, I imagine that Harley felt incredibly wounded with the loss. So, I don’t think there had to be any illness, anxiety, or fear beyond that loss. And we still do not know what motivated the forced surrender of the device.

The forced surrender of the device and Harley’s disappearance seem to me inextricably linked. As a stranger with what little I know about Harley, I can see that. Yet, in all the appeals for Harley to return, acknowledgment of and remorse for the pain of that loss to him has not been even mentioned.

I think whoever has him,has a spike in water usage. I hope they can get meter reads for the area. Also I think someone was grooming him online. So they could watch him in the bath. Make him believe it's no big deal. Gaining his trust, "I can make you a star". We can blow up YouTube" "Don't listen to mom, it's our little secret". Etc like these pervs do. They might have had a secret code. For meeting up, in case his phone got taken away. Maybe he broke intentionally to make it hard for mom to find what was going on

by Anonymousreply 8801/12/2020

It's a mystery. What could have happened to him in such a short time?

He didn't make it to the school which was only a few blocks away so where did he go?

It was very cold outside that morning, he wasn't walking around town for hours out in that cold, and even if he was, someone else would have seen him or caught him on surveillance.

I have wondered if shortly after leaving his house if he got in someone's car, or maybe even went inside someone's house for some reason.

If so, it would likely be someone he knew or was familiar with, not someone he met online, because I imagine LE would have found a trail of communication if that were the case.

Another possibility is that he headed for school but decided to go back home for some reason, and took a route which the neighbor's surveillance did not catch him returning to his house.

This is all assuming that the 6:08am footage is actually really Harley. Such a frustrating case!

If this is a prank by harley to increase traffic on his youtube sites, it's working. social blade, a site that looks at a YouTube traffic numbers, shows clearly that since 12/20/19 subscriptions , as well as page views, have increased on HD 2.0. however I sure hope that the Police have some good information that makes them think Harley just ran away and basically needs to be talked home.

Reason I say that is because in a way they are showing Harley as a bit of a perp in this. I really hope that in the messages to Harley they would include phrasing like," Harley, if you are able.." , "Harley, we understand there may be danger so be careful..", not just "Harley, you need to come home" kind of phrasing.

Otherwise people may start thinking along the lines that it's just Harley and he'll come home when he decides to and also giving Harley the possibility of escaping from captors would give him an out and might get him to end it sooner.

A tough love type response might be to have youtube temporarily suspend all his sites so traffic numbers freeze. that's if Harley is pulling a prank. I don't know if he is but i doubt it. another thing I pick up from Harley is he is a bit into the drama angle, but i tend to think many of the youtube content providers are.

This case bothers me, ALOT. A kid who feels safer at school than in his own home is in need of help.

That he feels his teachers are more trustworthy and accessible than anyone else in his life is heartbreaking.

That his social media activity has stopped is hugely concerning. I have teenagers, they live through the Internet and they would rather lose an arm than voluntarily give up online access.

Teenagers are difficult, teenagers on the spectrum even more so.

Is there any word on how he would be supporting himself out there? Financially or otherwise?

Well, police were searching an empty house very near to where Harley and his family live. Apparently a hooded red parka was found inside the house and that is said to be what Harley was wearing when he went missing. All kinds of rumors were spreading on Twitter in regards to this, including that a coroner van was seen at this abandoned house as well. But so far none of them have been confirmed.

Now, it's just a matter of, suicide or moider?

I lean toward murder, after all if they cut drywall, he didn't stuff himself in the wall.

And since the house is pretty much across the street, the cops are going to say the body must've JUST been put there, instead of admitting they stupidly didn't search the house across the street that has been vacant for two years.

A lot of covering up is going to have to be going on, this is why they won't announce anything till they get their tracks nice and covered.

the police chief and fire officials left the scene just after 3 a.m. Tuesday, and one officer remained outside the the house into the early morning hours.

Could he have been hiding in the attic but fell and was trapped between walls? That happened to a woman in Austin. Her body wasn't discovered for a long time.

Neighborhood kids usually know the abandoned houses. We did. We thought Icabod Crane lived in one.

I hope he wasn't sexually assaulted and murdered. Very sad either way.

I think he must have died or been trapped soon after disappearing, unless the water was still running at the house. He most certainly had OCD to be taking 5 baths a day.

The ownership of the house is disputed.

Some neighbors said, the owners stay in the Summer and leave over the Winter and come back in the Spring. Other neighbors have been saying it's vacant and still others say abandoned. All those things are different.

If it was known to be unoccupied, the neighborhood kids probably use it to do drugs and have sex in. Harley was a pocket gay (you can just tell) so that is what he was doing and explains a lot. Of course no one will ever admit that.

The cops will be embarrassed they didn't search earlier so they already have covered up hours now, so they can "produce" evidence that the body was put their recently.

This was undoubtedly a murder by an Internet boyfriend.

The only proof we have of his "autism" is his mother. And she said he was autistic and "not highly functioning." Bullshit, look at his videos, he functions very fine and isn't autistic a bit . She also claimed he was seeing a psychiatrist, another bullshit. He may have had a therapist, but a psychiatrist is an MD or DO and are extremely expensive and usually only consulted to prescribe meds. (Psychologists which are not physicians can prescribe meds in some states but not Ohio). I think the mother gets a lot confused. Plus about eight months ago she had a stroke and heart attack so that may affect her as well

I don't know how dysfunctional his life was.

He was definitely a drama queen. There is a video where his parents are arguing in the background and instead of cutting it, he goes out of his way to explain his father is being an asshole and then at the end he is like, "I better shut this off and see what's up." Like he's the big hero or something.

When he gets locked out for an hour or breaks his phone and his parents won't get him a new one and so on, he plays for sympathy. Which, considering we are now a nation of professional victims isn't unheard of, but who knows what his life was like? You only have his videos which are click bait.

So either he was dumped there. Or the cop found the coat, picked it up and put it on the door so it could be seen. But would they do that and potentially contaminated evidence?

The cops were insisting until after midnight there was no body, so that means they were lying or else it was undiscovered till then.

Then they blocked the view brought an ambulance and left. By 3am the sister was already blabing he's dead and the police chief still won't admit it, though they say on other sites Harley is recovered. If he was alive they'd say so.

by Anonymousreply 13401/14/2020


Actually it's funny you mentioned that. Bloodhounds are the best breed at smelling but they have a peculiar trait. They lose interest very quickly. In England they have contests and quite often the bloodhound will be first on the trail, then just quit right before finding the object.

That is one of two problems with using dogs. They get bored fast. A dog uses his nose to sniff out food or weak prey. Dogs typically are well fed so this becomes a game to them. They also use their nose to sniff out sexual partners, which again, if it doesn't happen or they are desexed, they don't care and lose interest

The other hot issue is dogs love to please their owner and if they find themselves frustrated will often take a subtle cue from their handler, which can be wrong, simply to please him.

by Anonymousreply 13501/14/2020


How so? His parents argued? What else? They locked him out of the house for an hour? This kid had phones, computers, was well fed, was receiving medical and psychological help if he needed it. Did you watch his videos, there is one where instead of doing his homework he is in class streaming and smirking and bragging about it.

Sounds like Harley was more than a handful. No one is happy that he is dead but just because someone dies does not turn them into an angel that is innocent.

Believing an obviously troubled teen when he says he's the victim is foolish. Tensions in the house brought on by mental, emotional or behavioral problems don't prove that the parents murdered the kid.

The transcript of his video at R6 indicates he was unable to explain a situation in a way that made sense, and honestly it sounds like he's lying. It sounds like he pitched a fit, his mom dropped him off at home like he asked her to, then he invented the whole thing about the cops and the vice principal, or perhaps was referring to a separate incident and has conflated them all together. Plus he refers to having to "stick with the story" until tomorrow, which is a little suspicious.

Windows were locked, doors secured, lockbox on rear door, no evidence of forced entry

Pursued entry into the house

Entered at 16:10 hours and searched

Harley's coat, glasses were discovered on second floor, next to brick chimney

Discovered Harley caught in chimney

Family notified and it appears to be accident

No foul play expected, autopsy being conducted this morning

Appears Harley climbed antenna tower to roof and entered chimney

Once in the chimney, glasses and jacket were pushed from the chimney through a flue into the second floor of the house

Chimney was blocked between second and first floor and trapped Harley

Chimney is 9x13 inches in size

"positional asphyxia," a condition in which the contortion of your body prevents the normal in-and-out motions of your diaphragm. In other words: if you don't get out of that position, you're going to die from lack of oxygen. And, in a chimney, there's not enough room to get out of that position.

The theory is he dropped his coat and glasses down to see if there was a clear way to the bottom. Both of them fell clean through. But when Harley went down he got stuck. There is one chimney but TWO fireplaces one on the first floor and one on the second floor. The second floor one is behind drywall and that is where he got stuck.

I still think he was testing if he'd be able to do it. That way if he could he could later on film himself for a YouTube video. He said in one of his vids he was hoping to get a camcorder for Christmas.

It is just those videos and that parents have murdered their children in fits of rage so many times before. It is easy to jump to conclusions.

Now that most of the facts have come out, I have changed my mind. Harley's life may have not been the most pleasant at times, but maybe the parents just did things the only way they knew how.

The house was unoccupied for ten years and the owner was renovating it. So I doubt the chimney was that dirty. But then again, maybe it was.

The owner said he was last at the house in Nov 2019. Dilly went missing on Dec 20th.

I bet that kid used to climb up the antenna farm to the roof and there was an unsecured window up there. Then he'd go in and use the house.

But this time when he ditched school to go there, the owner had secured the windows on his last visit. So now Dilly was on the roof and couldn't get in, so he tried the chimney.

So he tried to get in the house by using the chimney? Why did he want to go in the house? He must have really wanted to go there BAD if he tried to get in through a chimney. And I know he was a kid but how could he have been THAT stupid? Did he think he'd go down the chimney the way the Grinch did? This is just so nuts.

by Anonymousreply 20401/16/2020

Of course it's nuts, it didn't happen.

The parents waited 41 hours (that we know of) to report him missing. It probably was longer. Someone; his mother, his father, his Internet boyfriend, snuffed him out and stuffed him in that chimney. I bet that kid had an online gay romance and was using that house as a rendezvous. Or his parents could get in.

Either way there has only been ONE other recorded teen death via "stuck in chimney" and that one was murder.

(Note: There have been accidental chimney deaths in adults though)

People get stuck in chimneys coming down them.

How does one get stuck going up?

by Anonymousreply 20601/17/2020


Most modern chimneys twist and/or turn and you can get your hand or head stuck very easily. Like when Julia got her head stuck in the staircase.

I agree this was a murder / stuffing.

Why would he be climbing UP a chimney?

His stuff was found in the house so he was already inside.

Somebody offed that brat.

by Anonymousreply 20901/18/2020

R209, Supposedly he dropped his stuff down the chimney first to see if it would go down as a test to see if he could. But if the video in R208 is right and the opening was 6 inches, I wonder how a heavy winter coat could have fit through a 6 inch opening without having to physically push it through. I will be very interested to find out if the autopsy shows anything.

by Anonymousreply 21001/18/2020

Oh, the autopsy report was already released I see. Never mind. I still think something is fishy about this story, though, whether they say it is an accident or not. But it seems like nothing will ever come of it. He is just a kid from a poor, white trash family who didn't appear to have many friends so it probably isn't important enough to really investigate. Seems like they just want to wash their hands of the whole thing and move on.

Was his jacket covered with soot?

How did a jacket, dropped from above, get passed the flue?

None of this washes. He was killed and somebody stuffed him in there to hide his body.

The question is, if he was killed, why would you leave his jacket and glasses out in the open?

I doubt we'll ever know as the authorities, as mentioned above, seem to be done with this.

Very fishy.

by Anonymousreply 21201/18/2020

I live in the Cleveland area, and most of the local stations here were done with this story the day after his body was found.

Fucking tragic. He seemed to have lived such a sad life at home, and then to die the way he did.

RIP Harley.

BTW, I hate that fucking police chief. Asshole.

Everyone is projecting that dude was sweet and innocent.

I bet the parents of those two kids he set up to have a fight weren't so convinced of this.

And his "I'm so scared" clickbait video only shows you lot were had by a 14 year old boy.

He was nowhere near as dumb or naive as you all claim and certainly not innocent.

How would a murderer get a dead body in a chimney without a ladder? And how do you get 100 lbs of dead-weight up a ladder without anyone seeing?

There are a hundred other, better ways to hide a dead teenager.

The kid was impulsive and stupid. He put himself there.

You don't need a ladder to go up a chimney from inside a house.

He didn't come down the chimney, he went up it.

Putting a dead body up a chimney from the inside is even more difficult than dropping one down from the top. And the house doesn’t have fireplaces.

R220 Yes. Police think Harley climbed up the antenna on the side of the house. I imagine they have his dna on the antenna.

I wonder if he was able to yell for help and no one heard him . Or was it like that college kid who got trapped in his the mini van's trunk by the backseat folding down on him?

If he went down the chimney and got stuck, how was his stuff (glasses and jacket) in the house?

I'm not being snarky, it just doesn't make sense.

And I agree with the above poster that the kid was trouble/troubled.

Why did it take the parents so long to report him missing?

by Anonymousreply 22201/19/2020

I could understand the glasses making their way thru the chimney - but the jacket? Wouldn’t it just get stuck?

I have very old fireplace/chimneys (150 years old) and the back to back fireplaces in the dining and living room both have an angled ledge Inside that makes the entry into the actual fireplace much smaller than the chimney (if that even makes sense). A jacket would get stuck there.

by Anonymousreply 22801/20/2020

Why would he drop his glasses down there? They would probably break if he dropped them, and then he’d get in trouble with his parents. Plus he couldn’t see. How bad was his eyesight? If it was bad, no one would drop their glasses and hope they didn’t break. That makes no sense. And he couldn’t have taken off the glasses and coat once he was in.

If it was compression suffocation, that’s like Anton Yelchin, the Star Trek actor that was pinned by a car and couldn’t escape. He was slowly suffocated by the weight of the car. But being stuck in a compressed space must have been even worse.

I wonder if the parents knew he hid regularly in that house, didn’t want to tell anyone because they didn’t want to be liable, and then he may have been killed by the parents and they dropped him down the chimney. If he’d ever been in the house before, he’d probably know there was no fireplace on that floor.

If he did go on his own, he may have been trying to escape the cold, and thought once he was in, he could leave the door unlocked. But nobody’s going through a chimney without becoming very dirty. He couldn’t hide it.

by Anonymousreply 22901/20/2020

Same here, #222. How did his puffy winter jacket just slide down the chimney like butter? Why would he need to take his glasses off?

I think he was trying to get OUT of the house.

by Anonymousreply 23001/20/2020

There are a ton of crazies with conspiracy theories about this in Facebook groups. Nobody put this kid’s body down the chimney. That’s ridiculous. The most reasonable explanation I have read is that the kid looked down the chimney and saw light and assumed there was a fireplace there. He dropped his coat down and saw it wasn’t that far to the light and figured he could get down there and he’d have plenty of room once he reached the fireplace to crawl out. Once he actually got down there and found that there was only an opening that he would never for through, he panicked. Probably kicked the jacket out of the hole hoping someone would find it. The hole was too tight to extend his limbs to climb and he suffocated. I don’t think he was dumb enough to go headfirst, but that would have killed him even faster. I feel sorry for the poor kid- I have never seen a chimney lead to just an 8 inch diameter hole until this happened.

I think she sounds like a realist, myself.

[quote] “He isn’t a runaway, or abducted, kidnapped, or missing… he is found and dead!,” Heather continued in her post. “Today we had to go make arrangements at a funeral home for our son, our 14 year old. Who made a choice. He made the choice to climb the antenna of an abandoned home, walk across a roof, to a chimney and attempted to climb down. ... There he would of been able to view me leaving every Friday as I do running errands,” Heather continued. “The decision he made, he probably got the idea off all that ‘gaming’ he did with Fortnite. How they climb up things to go into abandoned homes to get treasures. He is gone.”

The glasses might have fallen off his face on their own while he was looking down the chimney to see if the coat he dropped went through.

Except, R231, there was no fireplace. And that leaves me wondering what that chimney opened up to inside the house. All I've ever seen is a little cleanout door to the chimney, located in the basement. Something isn't right here. This kid did not die by misadventure. Someone else had to be involved.

The day this boy went missing the mother was at some joint slugging down long island iced tea's (drunk's paycheck bum wine) She posted the pic of the drink and captioned, "ahhh....just what mama needed." I think that's fucked out. Almost 3 days to report the kid missing. The father went to the police station around midnight into Sunday...with a million different excuses as to why he took so long to report him missing. The kid told his mum he was feeling really sick and her response to the police was, "OH YEAH SURE GET YOUR ASS TO SCHOOL" There is the video of the boy freezing and his mother would lock him out and ignore his calls. The school called twice and she never called them back. The kids in the neighborhood, as well as the adults seem to have a lot of compassion for the boy. Someone started a gofundme account and it was pushing 20k until the information was made public it seemed the locals had a lot of compassion for the boy and tolerated his family. Now they are bullshit because $$$ has been coming in nationwide and in particular the UK. There is a lot finger pointing coming from his family ie the school should have kept calling me, the kid was trouble...blah blah blah...There was something with the family and the police prohibiting the huge search party even though he'd been gone 3 days when the news picked up the story. The kids in the school are saying he would often go the if there was 'something going down' at his house. The mother donated boxes of boy's clothes to the local church doing the search...On a personal note, anyone here have sibling troublemakers? Parent troublemakers? The kid seemed to be desperate for love and attention...and his manipulative mother would threaten to call the cops on him when he would get upset, She WOULD call the cops on him to keep him in line. A few said the police were reluctant to keep taking him from the home as dss failed to see the extreme signs of adhd and autism. Christ, i still have adhd and if that kid was locked out (like in that video) and he was on medicine...when you start to get distracted and's a nightmare. Take it from a guy pushing 40 that still needs ritalin a couple of times a day. When you are 14 you're hormones are raging and he obviously didn't have support enough at home to feel safe enough to express himself that he went to the vice principal? My gosh...he was crying out for i get selling tickets to a fight. Couldn't be that growth spurt shot up at 14. He was 4'9"! His voice didn't change. What's the deal with his sister? I don't know, I'm still suffering from Chris Watts. Computer baby. His closest saftey net was a digital line...

by Anonymousreply 23901/27/2020

If the mother donated the kids' clothes while the search was still on she knew he was dead.

Also, a jacket coming down a chimney would be soot covered and glasses don't jump up on tables by themselves.

He was dead/killed and stuffed up the chimney.

by Anonymousreply 24001/28/2020

R240. That absolutely did not happen. There was no place to stuff him up. The chimney did not end in a fireplace as you are imaging it, and as I imagined it until I saw what people were talking about. Some chimneys have only a small 8 inch diameter hole to put a vent. This was the case here. He went down the chimney expecting to come out through a fireplace- but there was only a hole.

by Anonymousreply 24101/28/2020

The family demanded the owner of the house remove the chimney, that their stupid kid climbed into.

You can bet they didn't reimburse the family for the cost of repair to the chimney for the damage the cops did

by Anonymousreply 24201/29/2020

How then did his glasses and jacket get inside the house?

And what about the clothing donations?

If he didn't get stuffed up the chimney (and I absolutely believe you about the "hole") Then what really happened?

I still think this is fishy.
