The search for Erica Lynn Parsons continues, and this time officials are focusing on the home inhabited by her foster parents -- the last people to see her nearly two years ago. Erica's brother reported her missing after reportedly moving out of the home -- which leads me to believe that there may have been abuse issues. However, the foster parents have quickly made sure to drag the boy's name through the mud by insisting that nobody should believe him because of his criminal record. While it's true that the boy had been arrested a few times -- for violent crimes -- that doesn't mean the parents are free of any suspicion in this case.
They were the ones who refused to report this teen girl missing for the two years she has been gone -- leaving it up to her brother to do so, but only after he left their home. This is extremely questionable behavior that has been seen in other high profile cases. Doesring a bell? Nevermind the fact that the foster mother's name is Casey as well.
If Erica Lynn Parsons truly walked away from that home two years ago, they should have done the right thing and reported the girl missing. Instead they chose not to draw any attention to themselves, which is another suspicious behavior. What interests are they protecting by breaking the laws set in place to protect children?
