Default This one made me sad

Deadbeat Dad's Flight May Kill Son

A real-life drama eerily reminiscent of a movie plot is playing out between Kentucky and Mexico, as a young boy wonders why his dad -- released from prison so he could donate a kidney to his son -- fled to Mexico instead. He's already on a crime spree South of the border. What do you think can be done now?

Sixteen-year-old Destin Perkins told MSNBC "I couldn't believe he had did that," referring to his father's running away without providing him with a life-saving kidney.

"Do the smart thing and turn yourself in," was the message he said he wanted conveyed to his runaway dad.

Young Byron's already received one kidney transplant, from his mom; but his body's immune system rejected his mother's kidney, leaving his jailed dad as possibly his only hope.

Police and U.S. marshals say fugitive Byron Perkins is likely with his girlfriend, identified by WLKY Channel 32 as "Lea Ann Howard." They hope someone will turn them in not only so that criminal justice can be done, but so that a young boy might live to reach adulthood.

The disappearing duo was tracked to a small town near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico just days ago. The couple convinced townspeople they'd lost their belongings and were expecting replacements -- and conned the townspeople out of at least five hundred dollars in goods and services on the promise that they'd soon be repaid.

Villagers who'd played "Good Samaritans" for the deadbeat due now feel betrayed.

I'd normally agree, but I don't think it still couldn't be done if the dad wasn't an organ donor. Can't just salvage parts from bodies for the living
