The from CNN’s Chris


CHRIS CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice over): the few people who knew Michael answers are emerging to the question, who is alleged kidnapper?

CNN has now discovered that back on 1, 2005, there were two on the Web site Shawn And postings were both Shawn Devlin.

Now, we know if it was Shawn that these or if it was Michael Devlin, or neither one of them wrote it. But the posting asked the family, How do you plan to look for your

There was another posting that same day that in very bad English, I’m for what I wrote earlier, but I poems. Would it be OK if I wrote a in honor of Shawn Hornbeck? But I can if you don’t want me to. Again, we know if it was Shawn or Michael that wrote these, or neither. But again, very postings on the Web site a little over a year ago Tony.
