For nearly two months, since a 3-year-old boy's body was found in the woods in Haddon Township - without a word from authorities on how he died or got there - John Potter has tried to keep his 10-year-old daughter indoors. "Nobody goes out of the house now," said Potter, 51, who has lived for 16 years in the Westmont neighborhood. "It's permanent. Life has changed in the neighborhood. " The uneasy feelings among residents - and the rumors - have only grown since Oct. 13, when a K-9 unit led police to Brendan Link Creato's body in the woods near South Park Drive and Cooper Street around 9 a.m. That was three hours after his father had reported him missing from their apartment a half-mile away.

Andrew knows a lot of the people Gump knows, but, most unfortunately, he did not know the beautiful blonde in one of the pictures. "Who is that?" he asked when his friend appeared. That, Gump said, is Erika - a civil engineer who lives in Manayunk. "She's a lot of fun - outgoing and successful. Your type. " That day in spring 2009, Andrew, a software salesman who also rehabs and rents houses, asked Gump to talk to Erika about him. Then they left for the game.
