    I was just looking at the top 10 most wanted. To me he sort of bears a resemblance to that Jason Brown. Hard to tell from just pix.
    Good job anyway.

      Sean is not on the top 10 wanted list. He has suffered mental illness since he was a sophmore in the honors program at the university of oregon. It is a heartbreaking thing to watch a person you love fall victim to such a devastating illness. Our family has fought for him on a daily basis for 20 years. Most specifically my parents. Their love and devotion to him and his illness can be compared by none. I do not in any way make excuses for his behavior. I do however blame the system. I also have the uptmost compassion for those living on the streets without family, or family that cannot find them, that suffer from this disease.
