Regarding Tara Murtha’s recent cover story about a man’s search for answers about his brother’s death:
First I’d like to say I am so sorry for these children having to endure such atrocities at the hands of those they depend and trust. They don’t ask to be brought into this world. Your tax dollars fund to pay these abusers and the entities that hire them. This is a perfect example of the negligence on the part of paid resources. There needs to be a major overhaul.
To my brother Eddie: You suffered a tragic death. We are so sorry you had to endure the pain you did. One day we will reunite. You’re thought of everyday. We know you’re surrounded by angels. You’re family down here loves you very much. God bless you Eddie! Love your little sister.
God bless you, Chahlie, for the tireless work you are doing. I hope you find the answers, so you can be at peace. It’s very unfortunate that you and your brother endured the horrific abuse, and that many other children have to endure the same. Keep the faith and keep up the good work you are dedicated to do for the countless children who might otherwise fall between the cracks.

Another child died in this home under this foster mother’s care, like a year before? How can children be tossed aside and overlooked? So sorry for Chahlie, Eddie and your sister! Chahlie has dedicated his life to becoming a voice for Eddie and all the little children. He deserves these answers. The people involved are too ashamed of how they “didn't handle” it. WHY? WHY? WHY? Give him answers! Why were these children overlooked?
God Bless you Chahlie, your fight is effortless. There should be more people in this world like you. You are/will be making such a difference in the way the foster system handles finding proper homes for these children. There will be less deaths (hopefully none) and abuse because of YOU! These children now will have the chance to live happy lives. I hope you find all your answers so you may finally be at peace, it’s long overdue. I am so sorry for what you, Donna and Eddie had to go through. Your childhood years should have been your best and that was taken away from you all.
Every time I read this I get sick. I am so glad you are so strong to try to get to the bottom of this. It is so sad that no one is held acountable for his death. I hope you find peace and truth like you should have already.
