I hope this story doesn't just quietly go away. I'm sure the family of ryan Wesson would like it to. They think they can get their grown up son a lawyer and make it disappear, like they did the car accident that happened, while he was under the influence of alchohol and or drugs. When that happened, there was a kid that was hurt who cannot have his life back, Is there any member of that family with a conscience? He pays no child support to his children either. Mummy and Daddy do that too. He does not have a steady job record.When will they wake up?He's dangerous!

You obviously don't have your facts straight. Ryan was the gentlest of people, especially around babies. I watched him hold the little boy that was hurt, while his mother was high on God knows what. She lost custody, not only of this boy, but her first boy as well, because she was addicted to drugs. She told me this, herself.
Even though Ryan tried to help the mother, Jeane, I questioned what mother would move into someone's home, and leave her child with complete strangers, while she went out to score drugs, with an older man. As soon as her child was in the hospital, and she was certain that she'd gotten Ryan arrested, she moved this much older man, into Ryan's home, and had no intention of moving.
The day that she suddenly had to leave her baby,Ryan knew that something wasn't right, and brought the little boy to his mother's home. He wanted to know if the baby was ok, because he wouldn't wake up, from the nap that Jeane had put him down for, before going out. That was when the baby was taken to the hospital.
Then, even while her child was being taken care of, she went to the er, trying to get a dr to write a script, for pain killers. She was taking advantage of the situation, as usual, but the doc would have none of it. She'd already been flagged as a drug addict.
I just wish that people would have asked more questions, before printing stories. Ryan is deceased now, and these hurt his mother almost beyond endurance. I would like to see my nephew get justice, for my sister's sake. The truth can't help Ryan now, but his mother can take comfort in the fact that the public no longer believes the lies, perpetrated by the people who wished to harm the son that she loved more than life itself.
