Skepticism on confession
(Giovanni Gonzalez Update)

It's been well over a month now, since I've found anything new on the investigation for Giovanni Gonzalez. That is until now. I have this sinking feeling that once I hit google, there will be an array of articles to sift through.

"I know where he is," Gonzalez said in Spanish, his voice calm and his gaze flat. "My son isn't alive. He's dead."

Asked why he did it, Gonzalez said that it just "happened."

"I didn't want to kill my son," he said. "I don't know what happened in that moment." He said he loved his son and is "regretful."

The extraordinary confession was met with skepticism by authorities, who have yet to find evidence in the apartment that would corroborate Gonzalez's account. The interview followed months of reticence on the part of Gonzalez, who refused to cooperate with investigators, barely spoke during brief court hearings on a child endangerment charge, and declined the tearful overtures from Giovanni's mother to please reveal the whereabouts of her only son.

Usually I prefer to hear the truth, but just this once, I can't help but think, "Damn, I hope he's Lying!"

This poor child and mother! I sure wish there could be some conclusion, and like you, I hope he is lying and that little Giovanni is out there somewhere.

I think we should keep on looking until something definitive happens. Giovanni deserves the benefit of our doubt.

Let us hope he is hiding the real truth.
