The long and the short of this is, a single mom (who had relocated there with her child after Katrina), died like 10 days ago, and her poor child lived with the body the whole time. A shop owner found out when the boy tried to buy groceries with her credit card. (The boy had been in more than once over the time since she had passed.)
I feel so horrible about the whole situation, but I can't help but have a part of me wonder why this poor child didn't say something to someone sooner?
What do you all think? Have you seen anything on this?

That's said. He was probably just too scared to speak up about in fear of what may happen to him and where he would go. He already lost his father and now his mother. I can't even imagine what he was thinking or going through. I do hope they find his other relatives so he isn't stuck in foster care.
