John DeGroot Digging Into Case of Gabriel Myers, the Foster Child Who Hung Himself
I'm dashing off for Halloween weekend, but as long we're giving props to gritty journalists who've gone blog-happy, here's some fantastic, in-depth reporting, courtesy John DeGroot, about the case of Gabriel Myers, the 7-year-old foster child in Margate who hung himself with a rubber hose in April.
This story's not going away. The doc, as well as the state child welfare system, have some hard questions to answer. Let's hope by next week, the agency's secretary George Sheldon -- a former colleague of DeGroot's at the AG's office -- has the temerity to address the issues in that DeGroot email.
