And if so, what charges should they face? The Butler County sheriff isn't saying what counts exactly, but he does think they have a strong enough case for prosecutors to go after Herrman's adoptive parents. The case is now in the DA's hands.
For those arriving late, Herrman is a Kansas boy who disappeared 10 years ago in Towanda, Kan. -- but was only REPORTED missing a few months ago. Authorities have searched the trailer park where he used to live and the surrounding area, but have found no physical evidence. His relatives, though, say they believe his adoptive parents are responsible.
