A tragic finish for a one-time happy ending
We first met him in this space on the day before Thanksgiving way back in 1998 -- a shy, smiling 9-year-old refugee from Maine's foster-care circuit whose wildest dreams had just come true: He had a new mom and dad.

I've written about how the death of Logan Marr, a little girl taken needlessly from her mother only to die at the hands of her foster mother, a former child welfare caseworker, shocked the conscience of the state.
