Vicente Cardenas' Family Shares Plea with Patch Readers Vicente Cardenas' Family Shares Plea with Patch Readers

To the Editor of Glenview Patch:

I am Vicente Cardenas's uncle and write once again on behalf of the family of Vicente Cardenas.

First, we would like to thank . We are very touched by the support of the community.

We continue to be frustrated by the and from the authorities. We understand from news reports that Wesley School has indicated that its .  

That explanation seems disingenuous. What is their point? Are they exercising their Constitutional right against self-incrimination? Then they should say so. 

On the other hand, if and its staff are cooperating with the authorities, then the least they could do is share with us whatever it is they told the police or to the Dept. of Child Services. If Wesley School is speaking to them, then they should speak to us. Surely that's not too much to ask for.

AS WE CONTINUE TO BE IN THE DARK, WE ARE ASKING ANYONE that has any videos from that terrible day (Friday, June 15th) at Roosevelt Pool to please step forward and share them with us.  

We are told that there were several birthday parties at the pool that day and it is possible that people made some videos. We are pleading with anyone that has a video to please let us know and share it with us. 

We promise to respect the privacy of the children on these videos and will not publish the faces of any children.  But we are hoping to obtain any possible evidence about the number of people at the pool, the possible location of Vicente's group, the Wesley School caregivers, the lifeguards, etc.

I can be reached at  vgurvits@bostonlawgroup.com or 617-928-1804.

Thanks once again to you and all of your readers.

Very truly yours,

Val Gurvits
