Jaliek Rainwalker candlelight vigil happening in my hometown of Greenwich tomorrow evening…

Tomorrow evening in my hometown of Greenwich there will be a Jaliek Rainwalker candlelight vigil in remembrance of the missing child who has been gone for 12 years. It will be taken place at the Gazebo in Mowry Park on Main St and it will take place after the lighted tractor parade in Greenwich.

Keep in mind, though that this candlelight vigil wasn’t my idea… a young woman in FB came up with this idea and a Jaliek FB group called “Jaliek’s Army” which is a FB group for Jaliek supporters only helped setup the candlelight vigil in Greenwich.

I know the adoptive parents of Jaliek (Stephen & Jocelyn) are not gonna be happy with this candlelight vigil and they are probably fuming over this but this candlelight vigil is NOT an attack at them. This candlelight vigil is all about remembering Jaliek. We just want to keep his name alive and that is all. That’s the goal with this vigil so that Greenwich can be reminded of his name and never forget him ever. We just want to let Jaliek know we care about him and we are listening to him.

Hopefully there will be a good turnout for this vigil and I think a good crowd will show up. I’m definitely gonna make it I think. I really should ’cause I’m one of Jaliek’s biggest supporters.

There are some people who are not interested in this missing child’s case about Jaliek and there are some who have lost interest but I will never lose interest or forget him. This kid has been on my mind ever since he disappeared in 2007. No matter how long ago it was, I’ll never forget him. This candlelight vigil event is happening whether people like it or not, it needs to happen and I’m glad it is.

If the adoptive parents want to show up so be it just as long as they’re not confrontational and all… this was meaning to be a peaceful thing.

The Jaliek Rainwalker missing child case is about to go national finally, the case will be featured for an A&E cable TV show called “Vanished In Paradise: The Untold Story”…

Over the past 12 years since Jaliek Rainwalker has been missing and the case still not being solved, this case has caught a lot of attention in the local news. It’s also gone viral in the podcast industry as there has been many podcasts and youtube videos about this case.

In the beginning, the local news media were all over this case but it seems the local news media stopped reporting about the case except for the Post-Star who seems to be on it still… thanks to writer Don Lehman who seems to be the only local journalist trying to keep the Jaliek story in the news.

Well, it looks like the case is about to finally go national. The case never got national media attention until now. The A&E true crime TV show titled, “Vanished in Paradise: The Untold Story” was in my hometown of Greenwich last week filming for the show. They will feature an episode on the Jaliek Rainwalker case. The episode will air on A&E Cable TV for the “Vanished In Paradise: The Untold Story” which is aired on Thursday nights. The episode will also be uploaded to Facebook on the A&E FB page.

A&E was in Greenwich last week filming for the show like I said and they interviewed quite a lot of people. Who did they interview for the show? I’m not sure yet but I’m sure they interviewed Barb Reeley who is Jaliek’s adopted grandmother who is the only one in the family trying to find out what happened to Jaliek. I’m also sure they interviewed the new Greenwich/Cambridge chief police and I’m not sure who else they interviewed.

https://poststar.com/blogs/don_lehman/blog-online-show-exploring-jaliek-case/article_dc5ee926-2ab0-53f9-ad98-c181d0e6285f.html?fbclid=IwAR1D-5NNBqYb9R48fsjKObK5qCwkW6IyAd-XvvFeKJdrNd0IJdwItMm5kp0#utm_campaign=blox&utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social

Some of you may ask, did A&E interview Jaliek’s adoptive parents Stephen & Jocelyn? I’m sure they wanted to interview them for the show but I’m pretty sure they didn’t go for it. In the beginning, the adoptive parents were cooperative with the local news media but they stopped after Stephen refused to take a polygraph test. The adoptive Mom & Dad did only one interview for the press… they did one interview for WNYT News Channel 13 and that was it. Since then, they refused to speak with the media ever again and they avoid talking with people looking for Jaliek like the plague so I don’t think Stephen & Jocelyn will be on this show. I can see their lawyer being interviewed on the show maybe but that’s about it.

Once this story goes national on A&E, Stephen & Jocelyn are in trouble… their days are numbered once this story goes viral nationally. They think they can kill a child and continue to live their lives as if it didn’t happen but we will get them in handcuffs somehow.

Once this episode gets on facebook, I’ll post it on the blog asap. I’ve been following this case ever since it happened and it never left my mind so I’m looking forward to watching this episode myself. Glad that national TV has finally picked up on this case, though. True crime TV shows on cable TV are pretty good at solving mysterious cases, they are no joke. I hope this episode haunts the adoptive parents once it gets on facebook… those murderers. We’ll get them somehow. They think they can get away with it and play this sick game of “catch us if you can” but we’ll get ’em. We’ll find Jaliek somehow ’cause that’s all we want.

If Jaliek Rainwalker is still alive like they say then they need to prove it… they can’t just say it…

This anonymous letter was sent to the local news media in 2008 after Jaliek Rainwalker disappeared from Greenwich in 2007. In this old article by Don Lehman, the adoptive parents and their lawyer were quick to defend it by claiming that this letter has information on it that only Jaliek knows which to me is a load of bull. They want us to believe that Jaliek is alive and well and they still maintain that claim even to this day.

Read this old article here:

https://poststar.com/news/local/anonymous-letter-jaliek-still-alive/article_cb916635-c996-55ba-8d28-ffcf66009b99.html

They want us to believe that he is alive but no one is buying it ’cause there is not a shred of evidence that he is alive. What information on here that only Jaliek would know? Well Jaliek had a cat named Diamond and about the macaronni family thing, I think it’s a misspelled word of “macaroni” so is there a family that Jaliek knew that he used to make “macaroni” with? That could be what the macaroni thing is about.

The “Franti Yell Fire” thing was a line from a song by Michael Franti and Spearhead “Yell Fire”. I listened to the song myself plenty of times and I can’t see a 12 year old kid with all kinds of special needs problems knowing who an artist by the name of Michael Franti is. I heard something about that Jaliek was a fan of music but I can’t see him knowing who Michael Franti is and that’s when I knew immediately that this letter has “bullshit” written all over it. Unless “the parents” are fans of Michael Franti, hmmm???

They want us to believe he’s still alive and well but there’s not a shred of evidence. That’s why Jaliek has been presumed dead for years and we will continue to believe that he’s still dead since there is no proof of him being alive. Like the title of this blog says, “You can’t just say it, you gotta prove it” which is true.

These adoptive parents have been asked repeatedly to prove that he’s still alive but they haven’t yet. How would they prove that he’s still alive? Well… how about release a video of Jaliek talking to us, how about send out a recent picture of him to the media and maybe even have Jaliek call the police department to tell them that he’s okay… but so far none of that stuff yet.

There’s no evidence of him being alive. There is NOTHING…. zilch.

If he really is alive, though then why would they hide him? Are people out there holding him captive if he is alive? Could be a possibility and admittedly that has crossed my mind a little bit that someone or some people might be holding him captive out there… ya know, holding him as a prisoner or something. The adoptive parents might of given him to another family who is holding him as a prisoner and at a pretty good hideout. Could be a likely scenario. If he’s still alive, there’s got to be a reason they won’t prove it ’cause whether Jaliek is alive or dead, there was a crime committed either way. They could have given him away to another family illegally when they weren’t supposed to.

For now, though, I’m going to believe he’s dead like everyone else.

If these adoptive parents are innocent like they say they are then why won’t they cooperate to help find their son like the rest of us trying to help find him? If he’s alive and well like they claim then they need to prove it. You can’t just say it ’cause “words” don’t prove anything and that’s why no one is believing everything this letter says.

It’s been 12 years since Jaliek Rainwalker went missing… NEVER FORGET!!!

548944_267764309990510_1640759867_n.jpg

The adoptive parents of Jaliek Rainwalker wants him to be forgotten but we never will. I’ll never forget Jaliek no matter what anyone says or thinks and no one is gonna silence me either.

The adoptive parents think they are untouchable and they think they are tougher than the police but make no mistake about it, y’all, the police will nail them somehow. Everybody knows they did it and I’m not the only one who thinks so. There will be some who will disagree. There will be some who will side with the adoptive parents and will think the police are the bad guys in this case but if you believe that then you are delusional and brain dead.

Some of you may ask, why would the adoptive Mom of this kid continue to live with her husband when he’s been name “Person Of Interest” of this case? A real Mom would have left her husband if she found out he had something to do with a kid’s disappearance but she never left him. Why would she continue to stay with him? Well I think the reason is that she is protecting herself over something. She knows what happens to Jaliek and I think they both wanted him gone in other words, they both did it. Yeah, I definitely think she was involved too, no question about that. This is why she isn’t saying anything about Jaliek on social media and why she’s trying to act like Jaliek never existed in this family.

This family can go on with their lives and pretend none of this is going on all they want to but we will never forget Jaliek and we will never stop wanting answers until we get answers.

We’ll never move on from this until Jaliek is found and those responsible are locked up.

Almost 12 years and still no justice for Jaliek Rainwalker… hopefully soon there will be, the sooner the better, though…

Well, I’ll have to say that the Jaliek Rainwalker missing person case in my hometown of Greenwich, N.Y. in the Washington County is exploding in the podcast industry. They just keep coming and coming and here’s another one. I try to listen to them all but out of all the podcasts I’ve listened to about this case over the last couple of years, I find this one being the best one. This podcast here covered everything that we’ve seen so far perfectly.

Have a listen for yourself:

https://www.nefariousny.com/podcast/episode/4a2cef7a/jaliek-rainwalker

Most of us have came to an agreement that everything leads back to the father, Stephen Kerr and we all happen to agree that he had something to do with it. There will be some out there that will disagree, though. Some will actually feel sorry for the adoptive parents and will defend them no matter what anyone says.

Yes, I believe in “innocent until proven” guilty but it’s so hard to believe that for this one when Stephen and his wack job of a wife never proved their “innocence” yet. Ever since this child went missing, they’ve been uncooperative from day 1. If they really cared about their adoptive son, they would do everything under the sun to find him but instead they seem to be worried about someone out there actually finding him.

If they were innocent, ask yourself this… why would they move out of state while all of this is going on? Why would they hide behind a lawyer? Why do they avoid talking to people looking for Jaliek like the plague? Why did they threaten to sue the police over the investigation? Why won’t they let the police compare the gold van to the one on the surveillance video?

Most of this family except for Stephen has social media accounts, why won’t they ask around online for people to help find him? Why isn’t anyone talking? When you have a missing kid, you have to go around talking to people to see if they know something but you don’t see them doing that either.

If they really cared for this kid then they would work with the police and the local news media to help find him. They have done that up until the father, Stephen refused to take a polygraph test and after that, they avoid people looking for Jaliek like the plague. They moved to Vermont while having a missing kid? They do what they do ’cause they are hiding something and they are pretty “confident” of not getting caught.

Their lawyer claims they are doing everything they can to find him but that’s not what I’m seeing at all. This family seems to have moved on with their lives… enjoying their lives as if none of this is going on.

When you have a missing kid, you need to work with the police so you can show you had nothing to do with it and to show them that you actually care about finding the kid. Is this family doing that? Nope. They’re still living in Vermont still to this day, hanging on social media like on FB/instagram and acting like Jaliek never existed in their lives.

Yup, I’m sticking with the theory that Jaliek was murdered by his own adoptive parents and they covered it up. It’s pretty obvious that’s what happened, right? Sure, no evidence to prove that yet but that’s how this is going to turn out to be. I can’t think of no other theory of what happened. Runaway? Not a freaking chance! Suicidal? I don’t buy that either.

Sure, the kid may have had his problems but you don’t kill him and throw him away.

This is a sad story. I’m a huge Jaliek supporter and I’ve been following the case ever since it happened. Jaliek deserved to be taken care of by a loving family but instead got in the hands of the wrong family who are nothing but monsters.

I wish someone out there would come forward and say something. Someone else knows something. Stop protecting Stephen & his nutjob wife and come forward. I wish the other four kids in this family (not naming their names) would grow a spine and come forward if they know something. They aren’t kids anymore, they are full grown adults now and they can do as they please… they don’t need to be in control of anyone anymore.

Jaliek will be found somehow. If Jaliek’s body/remains can never be found at all then we will get proof that they did it somehow. It maybe difficult and slow but Justice for Jaliek will happen. The sooner the better, though.

If black lives mattered to the adoptive mother of Jaliek Rainwalker then why isn’t she trying to find him???

Don Lehman’s newest article about the Jaliek Rainwalker case comes out and the case explodes on the internet even more, yet you still see Jaliek’s adopted Mom (not naming names but you’ll figure it out) still being active on social media. The case is becoming more and more well known online… everyone is talking about it yet the adoptive mother still hangs online. Her name is in the news pretty clearly you would think she would lay low and stay in hiding but no, there’s still some online activity with her.

She’s on social media, posting her left-wing bullcrap and appearing to be a supporter of “black lives matter”. If she’s a big advocate on “black lives matter” as she appears to be then why isn’t she out there trying to find her adopted son, Jaliek like the rest of us are trying to do?

This is a woman who has online social media presence and you don’t see her bringing up Jaliek once. She’s doesn’t even ask for the public’s help to try and find him. The lawyer claims in the press that she and the adopted father are trying all they can to find him but they’re all lies. The adopted family just continues to live their lives out there… all smiling… going on a lot of vacations and big trips… they go visit their other kids and all that stuff.

Why don’t she help find Jaliek like the rest of us? Nope. Instead, this family moved to Vermont and lawyered up. They are very evasive and uncooperative in this investigation… they refuse to talk with anyone looking for Jaliek. They don’t bring up his name and try to act like that he never existed in their family.

A real mother would have left her husband if she found out that he is the “person of interest” in a missing person’s case but instead she continues to stay by his side and is very protective of him.

They keep saying Jaliek will turn up and they claim he’s still alive. They’ve been asked before to prove that he’s still alive… well it’s almost 12 years of his disappearance… they still haven’t proved that he’s still alive and he hasn’t turned up yet.

If black lives mattered to her then why did she allow Jaliek to go missing? Why isn’t she doing everything under the sun to help find her adopted son? Jaliek was a biracial kid, meaning that he’s half black and half white.

Almost 12 years and still no Jaliek but we will find him somehow and justice is coming after reading that new article by Don Lehman. This family can keep smiling and continue to act like Jaliek never existed in their lives but the investigation is still ongoing. This family wants Jaliek to be forgotten but we will never forget him. I won’t forget him and never will. I really care about this kid even though I never knew him and it’s a sad case. I’m not trying to be a hero, I want answers like most people. If they aren’t talking then the truth will come out on its own… just watch.

Why it’s taking so long for the Cambridge/Greenwich police to make an arrest in the Jaliek Rainwalker case…

Some may wonder why it’s taking so long for the police to make an arrest or arrests (if more people were involved that is) in the Jaliek Rainwalker case… I used to be disappointed in our police department on why it’s taking so long but after Don Lehman’s latest article about the Rainwalker case, I can now understand why it’s taking so long.

After a kid goes missing, you can’t just arrest the adoptive father with not enough evidence. While it’s definitely possible to arrest someone who is a “person of interest” in a missing persons case without a body, it’s still a pretty risky thing to do. Think about it… when you arrest the adoptive father, the jury could let him walk at trial with not enough evidence and after he walks completely unscathed, the police department could be sued by him. That’s why the D.A. here, Tony Jordan says they only got one shot. They just want to take their time and make sure everything is right. They want to get to the bottom of EVERYTHING.

Straight from the article here:

Cases for murder or first-degree kidnapping, equal to second-degree murder in state Penal Law, can be brought without discovery of a missing person’s remains. But Jordan said a much stronger case can be made when a body is found.

“We have to make sure everything is covered, because we only get one shot at it (a prosecution),” he said.

So I guess, the best way to make an arrest and prosecution is to wait for the police to find the body/remains where ever it is. Some may want to believe that Jaliek maybe alive (ya never know) but there is no evidence and no sign of him being alive still. The adoptive father and the family claims he is alive and they’re still trying to make it seem like he ran away to join a gang or live with a black family but they haven’t proven that. Chief Bell tried to ask them to prove that Jaliek is alive but they haven’t yet.

https://poststar.com/news/local/behind-the-scenes-jaliek-investigation-quietly-continues/article_c9ff68a4-aa81-5949-815c-cd5b99ec4595.html?fbclid=IwAR2ktwsoqHJPv76nQ2JCq7rWEIn9t85WA8yWbv4LgZizqk4iIaxe-oSXzYw

Jaliek is mostly likely dead ’cause if he was still alive then Jaliek would have turned up a long time ago. We all continue to believe that Jaliek is most likely dead ’cause it seems that the adoptive family have something to hide… ya know…

  1. Moving to Vermont while all this is going on
  2. Lawyering up and going after everyone looking for Jaliek
  3. They avoid talking to people who is looking for Jaliek like the plague
  4. They threatened to sue the police after “allowing” them to search their Greenwich home
  5. They refused to let the police compare their gold van that was seen on the surveillance video that was seen at a Greenwich local bank.

If Jaliek is alive and they think he will “return” home like the lawyer keeps saying then why do they do all that listed above? Some people wants to believe everything what the adoptive parents lawyer tells them in the local press and it sickens me, ya know. There is a whole public debate about this case. Some people want to side with the adoptive father and defend him and stuff. I think their lawyer is corrupt to the core and very dishonest. He’s a very bad lawyer for sure. He is definitely a huge liar and isn’t to be trusted at all. So don’t believe everything that man says, everyone. He’s just being paid a lot of money to “lie” and keep them out of jail, that is all. The lawyer claims the family is doing all they can to find him but I assure you, they aren’t doing shit and they don’t care about Jaliek one freakin’ bit. Them moving to Vermont is all you need to know. Why would parents move out of state in a missing child’s investigation? When a kid goes missing, you don’t MOVE out of state… you need to stay put ’cause what if he does turn up and he finds out his parents have gone out of state? Only people with something to hide does that.

I really believe this case is solvable and everything will come to light soon. Like I said in a post before, the truth will always come out. This family can go on about their lives as if none of this is happening all they want to but they will get handcuffs on them soon enough. It’ll be over pretty soon.

I really care about the kid like everyone else since I live in Greenwich and I want all this  to be over myself. I think it soon will be. The police just needs to find the body and I think they will.

I’m going to give the police more time and be patient… let them do their job. Everybody else should have patience too. Trust the police, y’all. They know what they’re doing. The police cares about Jaliek just as much as we all do. They’re right they only got one shot at “prosecution”. Some want to criticize the police for going after the adoptive family but this isn’t really about that family… this is about “justice for Jaliek”. That’s all we want really. We want peace for Jaliek and that’s all we really care about. We just want his body/remains found and for him to be buried properly. Those responsible in his murder should be locked up too, though, they still need to be held accountable.

I kept an eye on the case ever since it happened and it never left my mind. Never forget Jaliek. I never will. Justice will be coming whether you like it or not.
