Charles-Bothuell

*The father of a boy who has been missing for two weeks was told by Nancy Grace, on live television Wednesday, that his son had just been found…in the family’s own basement.

While Charles Bothuell IV appeared stunned and went through all kinds of theatrics – clenching his chest and gasping for air at the thought of his 12-year-old being alive – the notoriously suspicious Grace wasn’t buying his reaction. The look on her face throughout the segment says it all.

“Did you check your basement?” the anchor asks.

The dad tries to compose himself and answers, “I checked my basement, the FBI checked my basement, the Detroit police checked my basement, my wife checked my basement.”

It was the fourth time the Detroit police had searched the apartment complex with a warrant. The police found the boy behind some boxes and a large plastic drum. They also found bedding nearby.
