This news story has an eery quality to it.
Because for several years now I have asked myself, what happens to children with attachment disorder when they grow up?
Nope. Kidnapping is not the answer. But the articles about the Thyssen family raise questions about what was not done.
If Koystya was known to sexual assault children or anyone, then by 22 he should have faced legal charges.
Did the family report him?
I cannot tell whether they did. But I know I did report my adopted RAD children when they committed felony crimes and was astonished to find the system did not want to prosecute and when pressed, took great pains to clear their records.
Did Koystya have a record? Had he been prosecuted in any way?
The crime here may be bigger than theft, bigger even than illegal captivity.
Koystya is a young man. What can be done for him? And what will happen if we do nothing at all?
