Ancestry com uncovers family discover sons identity theft
AUSTIN, Texas — A Texas judge has ordered the police department to reveal the family identities of four teens arrested by an Austin police sergeant following an anonymous tip about a missing child.
In a ruling Wednesday in Alamo Heights Juvenile Court, Judge Carlos J. Bove issued an order barring the officers involved in the arrest from telling the court or any members of the public why they chose not to press charges against the teen or provide more information on the circumstances surrounding the arrest.

Austin police Lt. Brian Howard told the AP on Wednesday that he believes the officers’ decision to “keep quiet about their mistakes was an effort to deflect attention from the officers’ own actions, which resulted in the arrest and the subsequent investigation.”
Officers stopped the boy for alleged truancy after his mother found the 4-year-old at her house with his pants down and his underwear in a diaper, he said.
According to Howard’s statement of grounds, Boyd told investigators that he knew the boy did not belong in his home, but that he was scared. The officer and his partner responded to Boyd’s house and found the boy in the family room and stuffed in a car seat on the ground. They then went outside an
