There are no Innocent Parties in the Trenton Duckett case, but that of Trenton Duckett Himself.

There are no hero’s in this story. Both Melinda and Josh Duckett should both be ashamed of themselves. Melinda is now dead of an apparent suice and Josh Duckett goes on TV and plays the adoring concerned dad. If both Josh and Melinda actually cared about Trenton Duckett and not themselves, maybe Trenton would not be missing or worse.

During his first two years of life, Trenton has been shuffled back and forth between his parents, his paternal grandmother, his maternal great-grandparents and into foster care. (WESH)

Is it possible by an act of God that maybe someone took this child away from all of these individuals to make a better life for Trenton Duckett? One can hope, pray and dream.

As the search for Trenton Duckett continues, information comes from the family courts as to what had transpired between the two parents and Trenton Duckett. Like with any terrible marriage and divorce between two adults, the child is always pout in the middle. The marriage and subsequent divorce of Melinda and Josh Duckett was no different. Trenton Duckett was and is the only innocent party in this entire matter and is the only one without blame. The court records were released and as usual both parents should be ashamed of themselves for using their child as a pawn. Its always the innocent that suffer the most.

Judge reviewing DCF files involving Trenton Duckett

Doesn’t this sound rather familiar in the sad life of Trenton Duckett? On the day that the judge decides to have a hearing, Josh Duckett is off to NYC to appear on TV. If both Josh and Melinda made the situation about Trenton, maybe none of this would ever have happened.

On Wednesday, Hallman agreed with Sentinel attorney Susan Bunch, who argued that the public interest in Trenton Duckett’s DCF case outweighed his individual privacy rights.

DCF does not object to the release of the records in question, said Tim Bottcher, an agency spokesman. He said DCF officials suspect a public release of the records may help investigators determine what happened to Trenton.

Joshua Duckett, the boy’s father, did not appear at the hearing. He was on his way to New York City to appear on television and make another national plea in the search for his son.

But on Tuesday Joshua Duckett told the Sentinel he wants the DCF records revealed to the public.

“There’s stuff in there that should be released,” he said Tuesday. “In my eyes, they [DCF] screwed up. They were passing Trenton back and forth between the families.” (Orlando Sentinel)

Florida Representative Mark Foley Resigns over Emails with teenage boy

WOW. This is just not good at all. Be it republican or democrat, this is just plain wrong. Florida Representative resigns over improper email with a 16 year old congressional page.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. —  In a scandal guaranteed to anger parents, a prominent House Republican has resigned after the revelation that he exchanged raunchy electronic messages with a teenage boy, a former congressional page.

Rep. Mark Foley, R-Fla., who is single, apologized Friday for letting down his family and constituents. His resignation letter was read to the House late Friday afternoon, and hours later, Foley’s former colleagues engineered a vote to let the House ethics committee decide whether an investigation is needed.

Republican leaders distance themselves from Foley scandal

WASHINGTON – Republican leaders in Congress, including Speaker Dennis Hastert of Illinois, scrambled Saturday to distance themselves from a Florida congressman’s sex scandal as they disavowed responsibility for investigating the matter when it came to light months ago.

Aides to the speaker say he was not aware until last week of inappropriate behavior by Rep. Mark Foley, R-Fla., who resigned on Friday after portions of racy e-mail exchanges between him and current and former underage congressional pages became public. But the aides conceded that they could not be conclusive on the timing. (Mercury News)

Exclusive: The Sexually Explicit Internet Messages That Led to Fla. Rep. Foley’s Resignation

In Congress, Rep. Foley (R-FL) was part of the Republican leadership and the chairman of the House caucus on missing and exploited children.

He crusaded for tough laws against those who used the Internet for sexual exploitation of children.

Federal authorities say such messages could result in Foley’s prosecution, under some of the same laws he helped to enact.

“Adds up to soliciting underage children for sex,” said Brad Garrett, a former FBI agent and now an ABC News consultant.  “And what it amounts to is serious both state and federal violations that could potentially get you a number of years.”

Police Take DNA samples from Hans Reiser in Missing Nina Reiser case

Although still not considered a suspect in the case of missing Nina Reiser, police on Thursday took a DNA sample from her estranged husband, Hans Reiser.

Oakland police investigators obtained DNA from the husband of a missing Oakland woman Thursday after serving a search warrant on Hans Reiser’s person, Police Department spokesman Roland Holmgren said today.

Holmgren said Reiser is not a suspect in the investigation into the disappearance of his wife, Nina, a native of Russia who was last seen about 2 p.m. on Sept. 3 when she dropped off the couple’s children at Hans Reiser’s home in the 6900 block of Exeter Drive in Oakland.

There’s no evidence a crime has been committed in Nina Reiser’s disappearance, Holmgren said. (CBS5)

Missing woman’s husband detained for DNA sample

According to reports, Hans Reiser has been less than helpful and cooperative with the investigation into his missing estranged wife, Nina Reiser. Police were forced to obtain warrants to get the information they needed. Hans Reiser has stated in the past that he does not trust the police; however, what does he have to hide? Why is he not cooperating?

The estranged husband of a woman who has been missing for nearly four weeks was detained Thursday night for a DNA sample, Oakland police said today.

Deputy Chief Howard Jordan said Hans Reiser, 42, has declined to cooperate with the investigation so officers were forced to obtain a search warrant in order to collect a DNA sample.

“He has not cooperated, he has not answered questions,” Jordan said. “He was released after we received a biological sample.” (San Francisco Chronicle)
