Diary of a Mother's Mission

My son, Kevin Martin, disappered under mysterious circumstances in the wee hours of July 18, 2004. His partial remains were found on February 1, 2005 in the river. The Des Moines Police have not been helpful and this is my blog to tell what I have done as it's done.

The final Police Report

Donna here. I'll do some writing here of my own. I never really wanted this blog up, but felt it was for Patty's benefit essentially.

All along I felt that the police, along with my private investigator should be left to do the job they needed to do without our faces in these boy's lives daily. Showing up daily may clam them forever I felt.

However, that feeling changed when a couple weeks ago, I paid a visit to Des Moines, met with Patty and she gave me a copy of the final police report that was previously denied to us. This police report has things in it, that were up then were unknown to us and had we known of this information back then, perhaps we could have checked them out more thoroughly. There were inconsistencies all over it too.

I can't divulge too much right now as I want to meet the police myself as I never did before, despite being the one who hired the private investigator for the case. The P.I., by the way, did NOT give me a full report, but rather a run down of how his time was spent, nothing else. The police report was FAR more detailed and gave us far more information than the P.I. that we hired who obviously has no ethics.

The reason the report wasn't given to us previously (at least the reason we were told by the police) is that it was considered an 'open' case. Apparently when staff changes happened and cases had to be moved, they closed the case without anything conclusive.

I'll report later more.
