UPDATE 4/28/16 – FBI offices in New Orleans and Baton Rouge announced they are reopening Wesley’s case.
Wesley Dale Morgan was only two-years-old when he disappeared from his East Feliciana Parish home in 2001 when he was two years old. He was playing outside in a home his mother and her boyfriend rented along US Highway 63 near the Bluff Creek in Clinton, Louisiana with some puppies while his mother, Ruby Renee Havard Freeman was inside making lunch, when she went out to get him, he was gone.
There have been many theories what happened to Wesley and one theory comes from Richard Sobers, a retired Baton Rouge police officer, who believes that Wesley is very much alive and that Freeman actually sold him in an illegal adoption. Particularly since in 2008 Freeman was charged for attempting to sell her unborn child for $2,000 to a couple. According to authorities, Freeman and also her boyfriend, Burnell Hilton failed a polygraph test.
The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information on Wesley and the East Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Office is working on the case and is accepting any leads that come there way.
Rhonda Covington, a public defender told The Advocate that there is a theory, but there was “never, ever a shred of evidence to that, and there was no reason fro her to do that.”
Talmadge Bunch, the Sheriff for East Feliciana Parish sheriff shares Sober’s theory and believes that Wesley is still alive and that his mom knows what happened to him.
Wesley may go by the name of Dean and he may be in the Mississippi area. If you have any information, please call the police are leave a tip here.
