The Christopher Barrios Case
Crimes That Stain Your Soul: A History of the Case
In March of 2007, my photographer husband I covered the Crime Library breaking news of a six-year-old boy missing from his neighborhood. We lived in Savannah, a little over an hour drive down I-95.
Christopher was last seen skipping toward his home, with a toy “light saber” in his hand, but he never reached home. When his stepmother realized Christopher was not at his grandmother’s and couldn’t locate him, she contacted his father at work to help with the search. They couldn’t find Christopher and called the police.
