UPDATE: Our hearts are deeply wounded to learn that the young boy’s body that was found cold-heartedly stuffed-away in a storage box in a Jasper, Texas motel room – has been positively identified as that of 5-year-old Samuel Olson. Medical professionals have ruled his death as a homicide. It’s obvious that Samuel suffered great pain, and there is nothing that he could have done to excuse the monstrous, uncivilized, vicious brutality that he endured. There is no conceivable, believable, acceptable or justifiable excuse for any adult to take the life of any child, especially that of an innocent, fun-loving 5-year-old. Our society is supposed to be more civilized, but this cruel murder of young Samuel is much like you would see in some un-domesticated foreign country … but not our country. What kind of bizarre excuses will the offender(s) claim in order to defend their cold-blooded, heartless actions?
We pray that God wraps his arms around Samuel’s family, his little friends, and all of those who sincerely loved Samuel, and will miss him so immensely. We also ask that you keep the Houston Police Department investigators, and the Texas EquuSearch members in your thoughts and prayers for putting forth their most exhausting efforts to find Samuel, while putting aside their own emotions and feelings in their tremendous efforts to find him. We know that Samuel is playing with his toy dinosaurs as he rides on the wings of an angel in Heaven.
UPDATE: The active and emotional search for 6-year-old Samuel Olson is now over. The body of a young child that had been found hidden away in a motel room in Jasper, Texas is thought to be that of little Samuel; but positive identification, and the cause of the young boy’s death must still be confirmed by medical authorities and law enforcement investigators. We ask that everyone please keep Samuel’s family, his little schoolmates & teachers, and all of those who TRULY love Samuel in your thoughts and prayers during this unbelievably tragic time.
