There are quite a few Brunswick, Georgia residents – some of whom helped to search for young Christopher Barrios, Jr. – who are insanely furious with the Edenfield Three and their pal for Christopher’s torture and murder.
“Insanely” is no understatement. They are determined to burn down the Edenfield’s mobile home, despite police and Barrios family pleas that they leave the trailer alone.
Instead of burning the trailer, which will accomplish no good whatsoever to this situation, I have another suggestion:
Volunteer to actively help and/or donate any amount to some really good causes…like:
In the aftermath of Christopher’s murder, an ever group of Brunswick citizens have formed the Justice for Christopher Foundation. They are demanding tougher laws on sex offenders and predators, as well as screaming for justice for Christopher, justice for his family left behind, and doing everything they can to prevent another child from becoming a statistic at the hands of another monster. “We change the laws, or we change the politicians” is one of their mottos.
The foundation’s creators worked closely with the Barrios family, as well as Mark Lundsford (father of Jessica Lundsford and spearhead of Jessica’s Law across our land) to establish the foundation and they’re off to a remarkable start. They won’t stop until Georgia passes their own Jessica’s Law and then plan to go nationwide to insist the same in other states with their heads in the sand. Donations to their cause can be made through the Suntrust Bank of Brunswick, Acct. #1000048852254. The bank’s phone number is (912) 265-5242.
Please allow me to offer a word of caution: I do not know the corporate filing status of this foundation and, therefore, if they are a non-profit. But Suntrust Bank will know. I have read they are trying to get a website up, but have found no evidence of that yet.
Another opportunity to help is to donate to a fund begun to help relocate Christopher’s father and grandmother AWAY from this mobile park where Christopher was killed. This is the same group that spearheaded donations to defray the cost of the child’s funeral and burial. Donations to the Christopher Barrios Fund can be made locally at any Brunswick Bank of America. The number to their main office in downtown Brunswick is (912) 267-4901. Again, I do not know how this fund was established, so a call to the bank would provide immediate answers as to their non-profit status.
George Edenfield, his lovely parents David and Peggy are scheduled to be arraigned at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, April 13th, in Glynn County. Donald Dale has already entered a plea of Not Guilty to concealing a death and tampering with evidence.
Dale’s plea doesn’t surprise me. It’s standard. I look forward to hearing what pleas the Edenfield trio enter, since all have registered confessions with police regarding their actions in Christopher’s death. Since they have a death penalty hanging over their heads, I’m betting they’ll plea Not Guilty, too.
Two predictions are guaranteed: the courtroom will be absolutely packed at the arraignment; and this trial will take as long as John Evander Couey’s did to get to court, then to get out.
More to come.
