Police find older brother of boy who suffocated

January 7, 2003


— Police have found the 16-year-old brother of a boy whose lifeless body was taken by his adoptive father to a hospital Dec. 29.

Christon E. Edgar, who was missing for a week after he ran away from state custody Dec. 30, was found Monday, police said. They declined to provide further details.

Christon is the brother of 9-year-old Brian Edgar, whose suffocation death is being considered a homicide.

The boys' adoptive parents, Neil and Christy Edgar, and acquaintance Chasity L. Boyd have been charged with murder in Brian's death.
