    I hope that yahoo shut down his email now especially now that you posted the full email address. I am sure it will attract all kinds of emails . I think just giving the first part of it would have been sufficient.

    At any rate, glad that the police are tracking these individuals. It really is a sad part in our world to have these types of predators out there.

    What type of car did he drive? Couple of weeks ago in Lemont, It was a guy in a P/U truck Black or Dark Green. Than last week it was a guy trying to lure a 9yr old boy into his car as kid was riding his bike. I would love to have follow ups to let these freaks know we are all watching and protecting our own.
    Cops need help, kids surely need the help and we want to help…Let us help by keeping us posted.
