The man traveled the country, working as a handyman using a string of aliases. He first surfaced in New Hampshire in the late 1970s using the name “Robert T. Evans.” (He was using the name “Larry Vanner” during the video interview.) Here’s what we know — and don’t know — about Evans, who died in prison in 2010 but left a dark mystery behind.

Patty Porter, 70, also is working for the early release of Bobby Cutts Jr., The (Canton) Repository reported (http://bit.ly/2seSWpa ).

"I think he's been broken, and I think he has allowed God to heal him," Porter told the newspaper.

Cutts was sentenced to life in prison in 2008 for the murder of 26-year-old Jessie Davis and their unborn daughter. He left behind their son, Blake, now 12 and in Porter's care.

The former Canton City police officer testified that he elbowed Davis in the throat during an argument in their home in Stark County's Plain Township.

Porter grappled with her daughter's death after Cutts' trial. She thought about Cutts serving his prison sentence as she took care of his son. Porter said a spiritual moment convinced her to forgive him. She said she believes forgiveness will help both her and her grandson heal.

Iraqi girl reunited with family 3 years after IS abduction

  Iraqi girl reunited with family 3 years after IS abduction The Ashti camp in Iraq's northern city of Arbil on Saturday celebrated the return of a girl whose abduction by jihadists three years ago sent shockwaves through her Christian community. Joy filled the prefab unit that is now the home of six-year-old Christina Ezzo Obada's family, who were forced to flee the town of Qaraqosh, which lies between Arbil and Mosul and was taken over by the Islamic State group in mid-2014."Seeing my daughter is a miracle," said her 46-year-old mother Aida."I was shocked because she has changed so much, I didn't recognise her.

Porter began writing letters to Cutts at her grandson's request. After two years, she convinced prison officials at Toledo Correctional Institution to allow Blake to visit his father.

Blake was about 6 when he first visited Cutts after the boy's counselor endorsed the idea. Porter later was able to get regular visits approved with the help of politicians and civil rights activists.

Cutts' chances of an early release are unlikely, but Porter is still hopeful. She said Blake needs his father.

"I felt like he had to go (to prison)," she said. "But now when Blake needs his dad in his life, he's the one that suffers the most."

Porter is hoping Cutts will be released by the time Blake graduates from high school.
