We first met the Joy family at our MISSING PERSONS MEMORIAL on June 25. While we had read in the paper about little Christopher's story, it really brings home the tragedy of it all when you meet his family.
The Joy family lives in Wellsville, Ohio. We met them this week on Tuesday at the Dairy Queen in Wellsville and learned a little more about what they have been through. Like Mike Williams family, they are not taking little Christopher's murder lying down. They are getting his story out as much as they can. They are talking to who ever will listen. They certainly have our attention. We are waiting for some pics from them before we put their full story on here. It won't mean the same without seeing little Christopher just 5 days before he died. Not a lot shakes me up, but this picture does. If you click on the picture of the Joy family at the memorial and look at the story board below them, you can see some of the pictures they used, and get a good idea of what that baby was going through. It makes me angry that anyone could murder an 18 month old baby and then have no charges brought against any one for the crime. We know that the more time that goes by with out pressing charges, the more likely it is that they won't. If you doubt that, look at the case of little three year old Dalton Springer. It is almost 9 years now since he was murdered, and still, no one has been charged.
Please look for The Christopher Joy Jr. story on here soon. The pictures might shock you, but the Joy family is living this nightmare and they are determined to get justice for Christopher.
