  • Details of Disappearance
    McNeil was last seen at his family's residence in Houston, Texas on April 17, 1997.

    In March 1997, when an investigator for the county attorney's office saw a healing bruise on the boy's face and asked McNeil about it. Patricia McNeil, DeAngelo's mother, explained that the bruises occurred during a fall, which aroused suspicions. When CPS arrived to get the boy in April, 1997 he was not there. DeBaron, DeAngelo's brother, testified he saw Patricia use a belt to beat his brother.

    Patricia was sentenced to 75 years for injuring the boy. DeAngelo's disappearance remains unsolved.
