PARENTS OF MURDERED CHILDREN WROTE:

The Cummings family have been through nightmare after nightmare since the murder of their son, Chris. He was seen as a run away for two years by the authorities.In January of 1995, witnesses came forward and JUSTICE finally prevailed on February 14, 1996, when John Christopher Peeler, was convicted of capital felony murder and was sentenced to life without parole. But JUSTICE for Chris will not be whole until his family can bring him to his final resting place.

"GOD BLESS"









CHRIS'S STORY

Chris disappeared the night of December 19th, 1992 to never be seen again. This evening was no different than any other we thought and since he had been grounded previously from failing grades at school and to which he had brought back up to A's & B's again , we didn't see any harm in letting him go to watch movies with some of his friends that evening and just get out again with his friends and have some fun. Seemed innocent enough.


The phone rang and Chris said it was a girl by the name of Amy, a school friend, who told him she was going to get her mothers car later on that evening and that she would be over to pick him up later. Again, seemed innocent enough.



We all had our dinner together. I had also made a huge banana pudding that night since we had bought way too many bananas and even though the banana pudding was a pretty large one, there were still alot of bananas left over. I will never forget.......




Chris and his Dad had gotten into a banana fight...yes...(A BANANA FIGHT)....lol....using the left over bananas to get at one another by tossing them back and forwards at each other).It was fun watching them but I knew those bananas had seen better days. They played like this all the time and were always clowning around with each other having fun together, just acting silly. They were close..(father and son.).. as any father and son could be. Little did his Dad know that this night was going to be the last time he and his son, Chris, were to ever be together again..were ever going to ( horse-play) with each other ever again.

We could hear the car drive up.....it was his school friend Amy..coming to pick him up... .so we didn't think to look outside to see who it was that had just driven up. Chris said his good-byes to us and promised us he'd be back in a few hours. He was never late coming back home when he was allowed to go out with his friends....Chris was always good to his word and since he had just been grounded anyway, we weren't worried at all that he wouldn't be coming back home within the time his Dad had allowed him to stay over to watch movies with his friends that night.




Chris was a typical teen-ager but he did seem to be beyond his years in alot of ways... like he had an (old-soul) to be as young as he was...(17 years of age). No matter what was going on in his teen-age life with friends and school, he'd always take the time for other people....(the elderly in the neighborhood who he'd mowed their yards for)...he'd take the time to get to know them....( really know them) and he'd go back to check on them even though he knew they didn't need their yards mowed at the time....he'd be at their house anyway to check in on them to see how they were doing and if they needed anything). As far as Chris was concerned....to him....he'd just added new friends to his already long list of friends...young or old....didn't seem to matter to Chris.....he loved everyone.....it didn't matter what age they were....he'd get to know them and become friends.

His Dad and I went on to bed that night never thinking there was any reason to be alarmed. We woke up and knew instantly that something was wrong. The house was too quiet and Chris should be up by then making noises somewhere in the house but there was no noise ..nothing ....just an eerie silence through-out the whole house. His step-brother and sister, who were a little bit older than Chris, had moved out of the house into their own lives.....so it was just the 3 of us there. We knew something bad had happened but didn't want to believe it. Not our Chris..No..No..No...he's going to show up we would tell ourselves and we also tried to tell ourselves that when he did show up...OH HOW GROUNDED THAT KID WAS GOING TO BE!!




We called to see if his brother or sister had seen or talked to him....they said they hadn't seen him....so we callled ..EVERYONE... ANYONE....we could think of that knew Chris and NO-ONE had seen or heard from him. NO-ONE!!

We tried to stay calm thinking that maybe he... for whatever reasons ... had stayed over at a friends house we didn't know about but we knew he would have called us to ask..but then we knew in our hearts that this wasn't what happened .....because it was too unlike Chris to be asking us something like this anyway to be staying (over-night) like this at anyones house...so where was he????... all we knew was....( Chris.... DID-NOT.... come home that night) and all we knew was that we didn't know what had happened to him and for the next 2 agonizing years thereafter....we were still wondering what had happened to him.

After extensive searches for him and a constant call in to the police for 2 solid years not knowing what had happened to him, but knowing in our hearts that he wasn't a run-a-way and that something really horrible had to have happened to him, we get a call from a homicide detective around the first through middle part of January, 1995, (almost 2 years and a month to the day of Chris's disappearance) who is informing us that there had just been 2 arrests in the kidnapping and murder of our son, Chris Cummings, but that his body.......( remains)....... were still missing.




Chris's school friend, Amy, had picked him up that night....but unknowing to Chris....she had her previous boyfriend, (who was jealous of Chris at the time and who she mariried shortly after killing Chris), in the back-seat of her car , and it was reported that he over-took Chris that night and then killed him. It took her 2 years to get a conscience....( a school friend of Chris's to care) about the nightmare of what she had witnessed or knew about ..( she claimed she wasn't there at the time of his murder that she had been dropped off) right before her previous boyfriend had killed him to which we will never believe but she turned state's evidence against Chris's murderer pleading guilty to kidnapping and we were told by the prosecutor that since she was turning state's evidence....they couldn't arrest or convict her of murder..just kidnapping ...that they needed her at trial to get Chris's murderer convicted of this crime. We were told..THE LESSER of 2 EVILS.....(HER).....was what it was going to take to get Chris's murderer to trial.

The trial was on February 14th, Valentines's Day ,1996 and Chris's murderer was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Its been 20 years later now and Chris's remains have never been found.

Chris will always be loved and remembered as one of the sweetest little guys anyone could have ever wanted to meet. He was as smart as he was kind and he believed there was good in everybody and he trusted everybody.




We will miss Chris forever. Our lives have not been the same since and words can't explain our broken hearts over losing him but we find some peace and comfort knowing Chris is in Heaven with the Angels and is watching over us.

Chris's step-sister, Christie, died as a result of Domestic Violence ...(MURDER) on June 21st, 2007 but there hasn't been an arrest yet. Please pray there will be justice for Christie and that God gives us the strength to keep on going. We know in our hearts that our precious kids...(Chris and Christie) are both in Heaven and we find comfort in this but losing them both to tragic deaths has shattered us too much and until there is justice for her .... there's no closure ... there's no rest...and there's no peace for us. Your prayers are needed.
Thank You and God Bless.

Biography:

  

My Dad is a survivor,

Which is no surprise to me.
He's always been like a lighthouse

That helps you cross a stormy sea.


But, I walk with my Dad each day

To lift him when he's down.
I wipe the tears he hides from others:
He cries when no one's around.


I watch him sit up late at night

With my picture in his hand.
He cries as he tries to grieve alone,

And wishes he could understand.


My Dad is like a tower of strength.
He's the greatest of them all!
But, there are times when he needs to cry...
Please be there when he falls.


Hold his hand or pat his shoulder...
And tell him it's okay.
Be his strength when he's sad,
Help him mourn in his own way.


Now, as I watch over my precious Dad

From the Heavens up above...
I'm so proud that he's a survivor...

And I can still feel his love.
