This is the message on the Justice For Sage Facebook page. It is short and sweet.
SAGE INVESTIGATION UPDATE: This news excites us! We’ve increased the fund drive. We have gotten permission to get the collar DNA tested that the family found Sage wearing the morning he returned home. The collar did not belong to the family and it has been widely speculated that the collar was used to control him while being tortured.
I like this too. The statement hints that the collar on Sage at the time that he was found tortured and badly injured was placed on him by the perpetrator of the crime or an accomplice. If there are human traces of DNA on it it may match someone on a police database. Let’s hope.
The private investigation had gone quiet for a while. This is a hopeful development. My thanks to the lady who notified me of this. The criticism I have is why this test was not done at the beginning of the first investigation? What happened to the police’s commitment to find the perpetrator?
