A Sacramento judge gave a nonprofit law firm the go-ahead to start a trust fund for a teenager who in December escaped from a central Tracy home where he said he had been held prisoner for more than a year.

Donors from around the world have helped raise $34,000 for the boy, identified in court records as Kyle R., who last month made headlines when he appeared bloodied, emaciated and shackled at In-Shape Health Club on Tracy Boulevard begging for help.

    wtfThis boys records, because he is a juvenile are sealed tight. They can't give any info on why he was removed or what happened.

    The article says, "Sacramento County took protective custody of the 16-year-old boy, who has been a ward of the state since his mother died several years ago."Why the change? Earlier reports said the boy was removed from an abusive home yet never cited why he was removed from his biological parents, or what abuse they're alleged to have committed. Now it's allegedly because his mother died.Somehow, I think the CPS falsely removed this boy and, according to another story, his original records are sealed. Hmmmm.....guess CPS doesn't want a lawsuit.The California budget being in a shambles, now is the time to closely investigate this agency that has too much power to wreak havoc in people's lives.http://astore.amazon.com/fightcps-20/detail/1563840693
