Another "Special Needs" Adoption With Subsidies, Home School, and Possib;e Murder...

Like the Monster who abused and murdered Nubia and permanently disfigured her twin brother Victor, these people also adopted special needs children form foster care, then took them out of school...seems to be a pattern and red light warning sign...but who's watching once the adoption is finalized?  No one!! And especially these kids "that no one wants." The assumption seems to be assumed "better off" and the state is willing to play the odds that they will be.

Parents of missing boy enter not guilty pleas

EL DORADO, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas couple pleaded not guilty Tuesday to felony charges that they fraudulently collected adoption subsidies long after their 11-year-old son disappeared in 1999.

Doug and Valerie Herrman, of Derby, are accused of collecting $52,800 in state adoption subsidies from May 1999 to July 2005 while falsely claiming Adam Herrman as a dependent. Their lawyer has called the allegation a technical financial matter.

They entered the pleas after waiving their right to a preliminary hearing to determine whether there's enough evidence to try them.
Adam Herrman remains missing.

Butler County District Attorney Darrin Devinney told The Associated Press after the brief hearing that there is still a missing person case under investigation. He said a decision on whether to file murder charges if a body is not found will depend on the facts found, but that his office was "keeping all options open."

"As of right now, we need to do everything we can to find out what happened to Adam Herrman," Devinney said.
The boy disappeared in 1999 from a mobile home park in Towanda, 25 miles northeast of Wichita. Authorities learned about his disappearance in December 2008 after his older, adoptive sister voiced concerns about him.

The Herrmans adopted Adam when he was 2 1/2 years old, and he had been in foster care before that. The boy was being homeschooled at the time of his disappearance.

A former attorney for Valerie Herrman has said the boy was a frequent runaway, and that the couple didn't report his disappearance out of fear the state would take him and other children away from them.

The Herrmans' jury trial was set for June 21, with a pretrial conference scheduled for June 17.
