ex employee - you got it right. That's what some people do "picture him as whatever place you want him to be from, maybe it'll make you feel better." Sick, twisted minds, that have nothing better to do than to look up "white people with the name Devon." Get real.

Condolences to Devon's family and friends.

All I would like to say is that he should not have been there and I feel I did not have the opportunity to love hom, nurture him and give him a chance to show he can belong to a loving family. Yes God was ready for him.....but I wasn't ready to let him go cause we didn't get a chance to know or love. I tell my kids I love them everyday and they r getting too big for hugs. But I hug them anyway.

i used to work at this Group home. its a great place for kids to be when they cant be controlled. the staff are responsible and do there best to help the kids. a coverup wouldnt happen, ive seen the company hold people responsible for terrible things in the past. they arent shy about taking ownership. as for the race of the kid or where he is from??? why dont you picture him as whatever place you want him to be from, maybe itll make you feel better. it wont help his family though. crazy things can happen and the staff cant monitor every step they take. but hopefully a lesson will be learned. ive learned one... there trully are ignorant people who post to this site. and they should let people mourn without bieng a bigot.)thats a shout out to cityRes)
I don't believe in a cover up or intentional maltreatment by staff. The issue is deeper and more well hidden. This facility is a small part of a bigger machine that is more interested in growth then in the care of the children being served. Administrators line their pockets with absorbanent salaries and create unnecessary positions with resources that should be going to direct care. Making these environments safer places to treat children should be the primary goal. Someone should look into these "non for profits" as balanced budgets don"t always mean that money is not spent effectively. State and county budgets are under extreme pressure and scrutiny. Strict observance of how "non for profit" dollars are being spent could lead to real savings and better care of our children.

BARF!!! It's people like you that have screwed up this country. Have you ever stopped to think that there's more to life than what you see, pal? Just maybe it was time for the kid to go. Period.
It's been 4 years since my family lost Devon & to see how ignorant you are apparently you have no remorse or family that cares about you, why else would you open ya mouth to say some #Spiteful S*** like that. No matter how you feel we are the ones grieving, so if you have nothing nice then #ShutTheHellUp &to get your facts right before you give your #Opinion!

Did anybody find out who/what caused him to fall? And today he'd be 17 or 18 probably

I remember hearing that the father pushed him out the window. Don't know who/what caused him to fall. Hope someone is held resposible however. Feel sorry for his family.

Well, sounds like the investigation is on hiatus. But seriously I don't know much except about the father, and I asked if he had been charged....however I don't know anything else. MAybe people who have the details should be posting what they know instead of being offtopic?

I think it's sad how you fell and landed on your head.
Good thing you didn't hit anything vital.
