OAKLAND, CA -- Criminal charges will not be filed against an Oakland man who was arrested on suspicion of murdering his fiancee's disabled foster child.

Alameda County Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers says there's insufficient evidence against Louis Ross in the Aug. 10 disappearance of Hasanni Campbell.

Rogers says the 38-year-old Ross will be released later Tuesday.

The decision comes a day after Ross's fiance, Jennifer Campbell, also was released without charges being filed.

Ross told police that Hasanni, who is Campbell's biological nephew, disappeared after being left briefly in a car outside an Oakland shoe store where Campbell works.

The couple's attorney, John Burris, says police rushed to judgment in arresting the pair last week in an effort to get new information in the case.

Another article about Ross's release.  I thought from the beginning Ross seemed suspicious.

Somehow the arrest and release of these two looks like strategy to me... maybe there is a reason it is happening this way.  We will just have to keep hoping and praying LE knows what they're doing, and that there will be justice for Hasanni.

I hope he will be found soon.


BTW -- in the infamous text message, Ross said something was "f-ing over."  And said he would watch her (Aliyah) but that Hasanni "will be on the BART."

Maybe he wasn't saying he would LEAVE Hasanni at the station!?  His text message might have been an angry way to say Hasanni would be shipped back where he came from... or maybe he was saying he refused to watch him and would bring him via BART train to wherever Jennifer was... work, staying w/friend or family after a fight, or whatever.  Where did we get the idea that the text implied or said that Ross was planning to leave Hasanni at the station or put him on a train alone?

Just some thoughts I was having today....

I can't answer your question Edward but I believe Hassani was in foster homes for 2 - 3 years prior to being in Jennifer's care and I think the bio father is in jail. 
Unless Jennifer and/or her boyfriend were a concern to bio Dad's family,
seems none of them stepped up to the plate to for Hassani two or three years ago when he went to foster care.

Your question is one I'd like to have an answer to.

  for Hassani.

"'Oh, they were foster parents. Did they really care?' Well, you go talk to social services,” said Ross. “You wanna find the record straight? You go to them and ask them why they placed them with us. Because we gave a damn! These were our children. Don't try to take that from us. This wasn't a situation where we didn't care about those children. We've fought every inch for both of them."

They both sat in foster care, so clearly no one else cared enough to step up.

Hassani Campbell *Still Missing*

This case is just getting stranger and stranger. I still believe the foster dad did away with Hassani the same day he was reported 'missing.'

Ross said, they sat in foster care for 2 yrs and the other 2 months. .. Got it..

BUT Ross .. They were also SITTING in foster care with you.. 
YOU are paid to be a foster parent. $$$$ 

The only difference is..YOU get the money now.
Nothing Bad ever happened to them when they were sitting in foster care elsewhere. Where they were looked after without threat of being left at the Bart Station and possibly loved as well as cared for by others..

But now they were with YOU.

Focus still on couple in disabled Calif boy case


By JASON DEAREN
Associated Press Writer

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Detectives continued to focus their investigation on the foster parents of a missing 5-year-old disabled boy despite prosecutors announcing there was not enough evidence to charge them with murder, police said.

Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan said Tuesday that investigators know Hasanni Campbell was not in Oakland on Aug. 10. That's the day Hasanni's foster father, Louis Ross, told authorities the boy disappeared after being left alone briefly outside an Oakland shoe store.

"We strongly believe and know for a fact that Hasanni Campbell never made it to Oakland on August 10 to College Avenue at 4:15 as was previously reported," Jordan said.

The boy, who is diagnosed with cerebral palsy, has not been found despite weeks of searching by police and volunteers.

Jordan made the comments after prosecutors decided on Tuesday that no charges would be filed against Ross, 38. The decision came a day after his fiance, Jennifer Campbell, 33, was released from county jail without charges being filed. She is the foster mother of the boy, who also is her biological nephew.

Both Ross and Campbell were arrested by Oakland police on Friday - Ross on suspicion of murder and Campbell on suspicion of being an accessory to murder - and held over the weekend.

Campbell and Ross cared for the boy and his 1-year-old sister at their home in Fremont. The sister is now in protective custody.

"We are continuing to put our efforts into solving this case and potentially re-arresting Mr. Louis Ross or Jennifer Campbell at some point," Jordan said. "We respect the DA's opinion but we have some more work to do here."

On Tuesday, police also released surveillance footage from a Wal-Mart store in Fremont recorded on Aug. 6 that they say it is the last known sighting of the boy.

In photographs, the boy is seen wearing jeans, a black jacket, black shoes and a red and blue cap. Hasanni and his sister were captured in the pictures shopping with Ross and Campbell.

Ross will be released from jail later Tuesday and help with the search for the boy, his attorney John Burris said.

On Monday night, Campbell, who is six months pregnant, attended a vigil at United Presbyterian Church and said neither she nor Ross would ever harm the boy.

"All I know is it was one of the most difficult times of my entire life, and I haven't lost focus and I'm still focused on finding Hasanni," she said. "We had nothing to do with it."

The couple has cooperated fully with police in their investigation, Burris said.

"There was never sufficient evidence against either of them," he said.

A police search warrant affidavit indicated Ross sent an expletive-filled text message to Campbell 10 days before the boy went missing, threatening to leave him alone on a train station platform.

Sherri-Lyn Miller, a volunteer whose company has created T-shirts and fliers during the search, said the focus should be on locating Hasanni, not on Ross and Campbell.

"We're not going to treat him as a homicide victim like the police because we don't know that yet," Miller said. "It's time to bring this baby home."

I moved to North Carolina for six months last year and I went crazy because I missed Sacramento soooo much. I'm glad to be back. Country living is not for me!

I think the foster father is a monster. Those text messages exposed him for what he really is.

I say searchers need to comb the beaches to see if anything suspicious has washed up. I'm channeling the Laci Peterson case now.

Ahhh lucky you then, you got to go back!  It took all that I had to move my family out here, it's taking forever to get enuff together again to come back.  Maybe someday..... Am kinda getting used to country living.  Gotta like beef and corn here, cuz in every direction all there is to see and smell is corn and cows.  Heh. 

I agree with you, the beaches would be a good place to be searched.  May take awhile for anything to be washed up tho, darn it.  My mind keeps going back to Texas and Baby Grace.  Done in by her mother's boyfriend/fiance/new husband.  Sure seems to be a LOT of this happening in this day and age.  Sad state of affairs this world is coming to.

Hi Desi!  I bolded the above part of your post that I'm referring to here. 

It's been reported that way in the media.  Here's a snippet from an article written today.

I don't know about California but in Texas foster families that have biological ties are not paid to take care of the children and I don't believe children that are in the process of being adopted are either.  A foster mother at my childrens school has verified that since she has possession of her sisters kids from the State, she can't get anything more than Food Stamps or Medicaid.  While that is some help you can't buy anything but food with Food Stamps so isn't getting rich by any means.  Besides with Hasanni gone they wouldn't be getting money for him any more, if it was about money I would think they would let him just stick around to get that check.  And with having CP I imagine he is even eligible for services from Disability, that would be an even bigger check than one they would get from the state for care.  Just some thoughts on it anyways.  And some foster homes are as bad if not worse than the real home life, I pray that wasn't the case for Hasanni because I would like to think he had at least some part of his life that wasn't bad.

The San Francisco Chronicle (California)
 
September 2, 2009 Wednesday
 
Foster father released - no charges filed;

The foster father of Hasanni Campbell will not face criminal charges at this time, a prosecutor said Tuesday, even as police declared that they "know for a fact" that his story of how the 5-year-old Fremont boy disappeared is false.

The Alameda County district attorney's office said it did not have enough evidence against Louis Ross, 38, to build a case that he murdered Hasanni. Assistant District Attorney Tom Rogers, who made the announcement, declined to elaborate but said Oakland police are still investigating. He was released Tuesday evening.

The decision came a day after Rogers said there would be no charges brought against Ross' fiancee and the boy's foster mother, Jennifer Campbell, 33. Campbell, who is six months pregnant with Ross' child, was arrested Friday on suspicion of being an accessory to murder, the same day Ross was booked on suspicion of murder.

Campbell left Santa Rita Jail in Dublin on Monday afternoon and went straight to a vigil for Hasanni outside the shoe store in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood where Ross said he last saw his foster son Aug. 10.

Campbell proclaimed the couple's innocence, saying they were "both accused of a crime we didn't do."

Ross reported that the boy, who has cerebral palsy, vanished from outside a back entrance to the Shuz of Rockridge store on College Avenue where Campbell, the boy's aunt, works.

But at a news conference Tuesday, acting Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan made it clear that investigators don't believe Ross' account of events.

"We strongly believe, and we know for a fact, that Hasanni Campbell never made it to Oakland on Aug. 10 to College Avenue at 4:15 as was previously reported," Jordan said.

Police released a DVD and photos showing Hasanni, his 1-year-old sister, Ross and Campbell shopping at a Walmart in Fremont on Aug. 6. The images were taken from store surveillance cameras.

Officer Jeff Thomason, a police spokesman, said the Walmart trip is "the last time that we have independent information about Hasanni Campbell being alive."

Jordan said while it was unfortunate that prosecutors "did not find it fit" to charge either Ross or Campbell, he respects their decision.

However, he added, "We are continuing to put our efforts into solving this case and potentially rearresting Mr. Louis Ross or Jennifer Campbell."

Ross had been held without bail at Santa Rita Jail since his arrest. John Burris, an attorney who has been consulting with the couple, said he is not surprised that prosecutors opted not to file charges.

"There never was evidence linking him to a crime," Burris said. "At best, there was some suspicion that the police may have had, but that suspicion wasn't supported by any evidence. So I think now the attention should go back toward finding Hasanni. It was a travesty that these two people were subjected to this kind of humiliation without just cause."

Burris disputed the chief's assertions that Hasanni was never in Oakland at the time Ross reported him missing. "How do they know that for a fact?" he said.

Friends of the couple plan to search for Hasanni on Saturday at Lake Elizabeth in Fremont.

"The focus should be finding this missing boy," said Campbell's mother, Pamela Clark, 62, of San Francisco. She said of the attention on the couple, "It's like a terrible witch hunt."

Possibly stupid question, but is Ross reading here too?

I know there has been suspicion of 'perps' or their family posting here and at various crime websites on cases we discuss.

I read on websleuths that several members thought or were convinced that Ross was posting on there. I could not figure out what user the websleuth members were referring to but I think he was posting there aroung Aug 19. according to the members over there.

Do we need to be careful in what we say or is it irrevelant? I know there are no safeguards to verify who someone really is as this is the internet but wondered if anyone had an opinion on this.
