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.


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.


Almost 12 years of missing Jaliek Rainwalker…the police still haven’t forgotten… they are still investigating secretly and quietly…

It’s now getting close to 12 years since Jaliek Rainwalker went missing. The media has stayed silent on the case for a long while and finally Don Lehman of the Post Star gives us a new update on the case.

Yeah, it’s been a long while since we’ve had new updates on the case. The Greenwich/Cambridge police still haven’t forgotten about Jaliek. They’re still working and investigating the case, but they’re doing it very quietly and secretly. That’s the update on the case so far

The local news media may have stayed silent on the case for a pretty long time but an un-named reporter did go to the house in Vermont to try and talk to Stephen but the reporter was ordered to stay away by Stephen himself.

I’m not going to bother explaining what happened when Jaliek went missing when you can just simply do a google search and read the article right here for yourself… there are also plenty of podcasts and youtube videos out there explaining the story.


I think it’s safe to say that most everyone pretty much agrees that the adoptive father, Stephen had something to do with it. Most everyone believes it is homicide, including myself. There’s no doubt in my mind that Stephen probably killed him and dumped his body somewhere where he can’t be found.

Stephen continues to maintain that he has nothing to hide and didn’t harm Jaliek but he moved his family to Vermont, lawyered up and refuses to talk to anyone looking for Jaliek. Hmmmmmm… really.

You think that if you were being investigated in a missing person’s case, you would cooperate with the police so you can get the police off your back but Stephen doesn’t do that. Instead, he avoids people looking for Jaliek like the plague and hires a lawyer. Un-fucking believable.

12 years of missing Jaliek… still no remains and still no one locked up. The police really cares about Jaliek just as much as we all do and they want justice for jaliek too. All we want is justice for Jaliek. We want Jaliek’s remains to be found so we can bury him properly. A lot of us also want his killer or “killers” locked up. Lock up all those involved in his murder. It’s a tough case to solve ’cause Stephen covered his tracks too damn good.

Of course, not everyone believes that this was a homicide/murder. There are some that actually sides with the adoptive family and there are some who wants to blame Barb. Blaming Barb for the disappearance doesn’t make sense at all ’cause she wasn’t the last person to see Jaliek alive wasn’t she?

They think they can get away with it by staying silent but they won’t. They WILL get caught somehow and someway. I hope the police nails the adoptive father soon and fast. The sooner, the better though. They can go on with their lives, all happy happy joy joy but we will wipe those smiles off their faces once we do find Jaliek and we will find him somehow. The truth will get out there whether they like it or not. The truth is a powerful thing. You can’t stop the truth from getting out and it will happen. It’s gonna be slow moving but I think this case is solvable for sure.

While the local news media seems to have stopped caring, the Jaliek Rainwalker case seems to have exploded in the podcast industry which was pretty amazing to see. The longer he stays missing, the more people start to wonder and that’s how it goes.

We will find you, Jaliek and I’m still thinking of you, buddy. I want answers like everyone else. Glad to see that the police still care.


Jaliek Rainwalker… missing persons case pretty much have gone viral over the internet…

I’ve been following the Jaliek Rainwalker missing persons case ever it happened. This case never left my mind and I never forgot. I’ve been following this case ever it happened back in 2007 and still follow it today. Even though local media outlets don’t report this case all that much over the years, there are still a lot of people talking about it. I’ve noticed that this case has gotten bigger and more well-known online. This case has caught the attention of a lot of true crime and missing person bloggers so they started doing podcasts and vlogs on the case. I’ve heard quite a few podcasts about the Jaliek Rainwalker case and seen quite a few video blogs about it in youtube. Out of everything I’ve seen and heard about the case this is the best video I’ve seen.

This vlogger Danelle Hallan did an excellent job researching all the facts that were known online. Most vloggers and podcasters who did stuff about the case leave a lot of stuff out but this woman didn’t. Danelle Hallan pretty much nailed everything.

Unfortunately, though, there’s still not a lot of info about the Jaliek Rainwalker case. All the facts you want to know about would take a quick and easy google search. There’s no other info about the Jaliek story than what you see through google and youtube. This case is still a mystery sadly.

I agree that this case is a heartbreaker. It’s not only heartbreaking, it’s also very scary.

There are some out there that believe that the adopted father didn’t have anything to do with Jaliek’s disappearance. There are some that believe the adopted father did have something to do with it. There are mixed reactions and opinions to this case.

I’m still sticking with the theory that the adopted father DID have something to do with the disappearance of Jaliek. I totally agree with most people that the father does have something to hide. Is he hiding something criminal? To those that believe that the father had nothing to do with anything then:

  • Why would the family move out of state while all this is going on?
  • Why would they hide behind a lawyer?
  • Why would they threaten to sue law enforcement after they searched their home?
  • Why have they stopped cooperating with law enforcement and local news media outlets?
  • Why do they avoid talking to people looking for Jaliek like the plague?

They have nothing to hide hey? Also, the adoptive father and adoptive mother pretends to care about searching for Jaliek but they don’t care about him one freakin’ bit. They are not even searching for him. A real parent would have done everything in their power to look for their missing kid like staying home and not move out of state. Moving out of state during a missing persons investigation was the dumbest move they could do. I mean, what if Jaliek does turn up in Greenwich and Jaliek finds out they moved out of state? What do you think Jaliek would feel if he turned up and they’re not here? You don’t see the adoptive family asking for the public’s help in search of Jaliek. You don’t see them joining us in our search. That’s all we want to do is find him and look for answers but the adoptive parents seems to get upset at people looking for him. They have nothing to hide, hey? Fucking please! They’re not looking for him at all. When you see their lawyer claiming they’re doing all they can, don’t listen to him ’cause it’s a flat out lie. They pay their shady lawyer a lot of money to lie for them and protect them.

11 years  and this case still hasn’t been solved. Why? I blame the law enforcement for one ’cause I think they did a lousy job with this case. Law enforcement is not tough enough as they appear to be. I think they could have done a better job and this case would have been over a long time ago. Another reason is that their lawyer is doing all they can to keep them out of jail. Trying to keep them from getting locked up.

I’m glad to see that this case has gotten bigger online. The more people know about this case, the merrier. We need as much people as we can talking about this case ’cause the more people talk about it, the more pressure it keeps on the adoptive parents.

Why aren’t the adoptive parents locked up yet? I totally believe both of them are responsible. Yes, the adoptive mother seems to be involved in something. They should be in jail but nope. They are still out there being all happy happy joy joy and enjoying their lives. They need to be held accountable and be locked up. I hope they enjoyed their Christmas. Hopefully next year they’ll spend Christmas inside a prison cell.

We will not move on from this case until Jaliek is found. Jaliek deserves his justice. We want justice for Jaliek and that’s what we care about most.

The video above is kind of long but worth a listen. Trust me.



Jaliek Rainwalker remains finally found? Skull found and it could be him… #JusticeForJaliek

I’ve been silent on the Jaliek Rainwalker case ’cause there was no info and no updates… finally here is an update on the case from the Post Star. Police found a portion of a young boy’s skull in Greene County. The remains were found in state land of Coxsackie. Not far from an area where the Hudson flows floods and high tides.

My guess is that who ever was trying to hide the body, dumped the body in the river and left the head behind?


I’ve been saying for years that Jaliek was murdered for a long time but I got slammed by delusional idiots for it. They started feeling sorry for the boy’s family and siding with them and stuff. Disgusting. If the remains found turns out to be Jaliek after all then I’ll be the one to tell the doubters, “I told ya so”.

I totally blame the boy’s adoptive parents like everyone else. I think the same way. The boy’s parents are going to prison soon. This case deserves a closure and this boy needs a proper burial so the boy’s other family members can move on with their lives.

Lets hope and pray that the skull found turns out to be Jaliek after all. The adoptive parents need to be arrested and locked up. The adoptive father killed the kid and his wife tried to protect him by covering it up. Trust me, they will get caught. Hopefully this case will be over with soon!

The reason this case has went from missing person to homicide is quite simple, it’s because Stephen and Jocelyn refuses to cooperate in this investigation. That’s why the police and most everyone in Greenwich believes this trashy couple is hiding something.

Ya know, if Jaliek really did runaway from home then why don’t Stephen and Jocelyn prove it to law enforcement? That’s all the police wants them to do is to work with them on what happened to Jaliek. If they were really innocent then they would prove it to the police but instead they flee to Vermont. You don’t prove your innocence by hiding behind a lawyer ’cause that’s pretty cowardly. Hiding behind a lawyer doesn’t prove anything. They seem to be scared of the police. That’s why people are starting to believe that they’ve got something to hide ’cause this couple don’t want to go to prison.

Learn more about the Jaliek Rainwalker case in this link if you want to learn more of what I’m talking about:


Yes, it is possible to get away with murder. Sure, Jaliek may have had his problems and issues. Jaliek may have been a huge pain in the ass to this family, sure but he didn’t deserve to get killed over it. I think it’s possible that Stephen may have beat the kid to death in that house on Hill St., either that or drowned him. It could have been by accident or it was intentional. Then Stephen disposed the body. Got rid of the body or buried it at a really good hiding spot. Stephen and Jaliek were together in that house on Hill St. and then Jaliek was never seen again so the disappearance is very suspicious.

It’s pretty insane. The Jaliek Rainwalker case is still under investigation while this piece of trash of a mother blogs about parenting on the “Macroparent” blog on wordpress.

A kid goes missing and then she goes off about how great of a parent she is? Wow.

Once again, I think there will be closure on this case someday in the future. The sooner, the better, though. The police will catch Stephen and Jocelyn somehow. They’ll get nailed. Trust me. This couple deserves prison and that’s what they’re scared of. That’s what they’re trying to avoid.

I care about this kid named, Jaliek ’cause he’s from my hometown of Greenwich. I’ve been following this case ever since it happened. I’m just trying to help by keeping the story going and hoping to give this case more attention by posting it on my blog.


Why the adoptive parents of Jaliek Rainwalker are totally guilty all the way… #JusticeForJaliek

The only reason that the adoptive father of Jaliek Rainwalker whose name is, Stephen Kerr, is getting blamed for Jaliek’s disappearance is ’cause Stephen was the last person to see Jaliek alive. It’s that simple really. On the night before Nov. 1st 2007 (the date that Jaliek vanished), I’ve read that Stephen and Jaliek spent the night at the home on Hill St. in Greenwich and the night after Jaliek was never to be seen again. So I think it’s pretty obvious that something horrible happened to Jaliek in that house on Oct. 31st. It’s obvious that Stephen knows what happened to Jaliek and he isn’t talking.

Most people want to believe that Stephen killed Jaliek but Stephen maintains that Jaliek has runaway from home. Whose side is more believable? The adoptive parents are trying to make it look like that Jaliek ran away from home but none of us are buying it ’cause why? Simply because around the time of Oct. 31st/Nov. 1st, it was around the Fall/Winter so it was very cold. None of us could see Jaliek getting up and walking away from home in the freezing cold and walking out in the middle of nowhere. Their running away claim just doesn’t add up.

The adoptive parents continue to maintain that they’re innocent and had nothing to do with Jaliek’s disappearance but if they were really innocent then why don’t they prove it? It should be easy to prove their innocence so they can clear their name but instead they move to West Rupert, Vermont and they hire to lawyer to protect them. They continue to claim they’re doing everything they can to help find Jaliek themselves and hoping he’ll come home but I don’t see them doing anything at all. Instead, they seem very protective of Stephen. They don’t want him getting in trouble. What kind of family would hire a lawyer to go after everyone that cares to find answers about what happened to Jaliek? Pathetic.

Either way, Stephen and Jocelyn, the adoptive parents did something bad to this kid. It is possible to get away with murder and this couple won’t get away with it. They need to get locked up and I’m feeling it will happen soon. The Greenwich police just need to find the hard evidence to prove their guilt so they can get an arrest warrant. I predict we’ll get closure on this case pretty soon. This trashy couple are a couple of cowards who won’t take responsibility for anything. All the police want to do is question them. If they want the police off their back then why don’t they talk to them? Usually when people refuse to talk with the police about something, they are hiding something. If you think this couple is innocent then I hope you don’t ever become the jury of a criminal trial.

The adoptive mother of Jaliek Rainwalker blogs/tweets about parenting while still having a missing kid… #JusticeForJaliek

The local news media and the Greenwich police may have stopped caring to find answers about what happened to the disappearance of Jaliek Rainwalker but I haven’t. I haven’t forgotten about Jaliek and I’ve been following the case ever since it happened.

I’ve recently discovered that the adoptive mother of Jaliek, Jocelyn McDonald has her own social networking pages and she has her own blog on wordpress called, “Macroparent” where she blogs about parenting.



She and her husband claims to be doing everything they can to help find Jaliek themselves but does it looks like she’s doing that with the links above? No, not from what I see. You don’t see her writing any blog posts about trying to find Jaliek at all and she’s trying to act like Jaliek doesn’t even exist.

Jaliek’s adoptive parents are interviewed in the video below. It seems they are trying to get us to forget about Jaliek and it seems they’re pretending that he never existed.

I think it’s pretty obvious that this couple is hiding something and they aren’t talking. My question is what gives this woman the right to blog about parenting while she still has a missing kid? Does she thinks it’s okay to move forward and forget about him? They moved from Greenwich to Vermont and I think they did that so they can avoid the local news media and the Greenwich police. She has a missing kid and she’s online lecturing people about parenting. That’s pretty messed up.

There’s no doubt that this trashy couple is hiding something. They moved out of town and I think they did that to flee from the police like a couple of cowards.
