The young man found in that car was my oldest brother. We reported him misssing to the authorities on December 26, 2006. I knew that he had missed his court date in November and had been speaking to him about turning himself in to the authorities. He had actually promised me he would in fact do so after the holidays. Whether he had been convicted for drug charges or not should not have determined whether Houston P.D. would take a missing person's report on him. They refused to do so. No one in the media took his disappearance seriously. I know he was not a choir boy, but he deserved better. For the media not to mention him until they found his decomposing body 2 months after he went missing is just sad. I don't believe this would have necessarily saved him, but at least the car that he was found in may have been discovered before March 2nd. After Hurricane Katrina leveled New Orleans, many residents decidied to remain in the Houston area. Over the past year and a half, there have been numerous story circulated back home about the treatment New Orleanians have been receiving in Texas. I never gave the stories much weight until now. I'm not going to say that if my brother were white and a college student, the response to his disappearance wouldn't have been different. I don't know that. What I do know is that he and a friend, who had never received a much as a parking ticket, went missing and the City of Houston did nothing.

I am so sorry they did not make a big deal about this in the news. When they went missing pictures should have been on TV & in the newspaper. Do they have any info on what happened or who did this?
