On any given day, hundreds of thousands of children walk home from school alone. Parents have the difficult task of trying to weigh up the dangers that their children may face. In 2016, however, a family in Houston, Texas, were thrown into the midst of a nightmare when their son was targeted as he walked home from school alone.
In August of 2015, a woman was home alone when she received a very disturbing text message from her daughter who lived in Houston, Texas. It read that she was being held hostage by a former boyfriend. Time truly was of the essence, but the response of the Sheriff’s Department would lead to a plethora of questions and criticisms.
