15-year-old Andrew Potter was hit by a car when he tried to escape Devereux Cleo Wallace in Westminster. While the identity of the driver was not clear, the victim was. A boy who was only allowed 15 years to live in this world. We do not know the circumstances that led to his placement at this facility which had its share of controversial media articles covering its way of doing business over the years but we do know that he never made it back to safety among friends and family. It must have been a terrible loss for them.
May he find peace where he is now.
