Joshua Andrew Gleeson
Birth: Jun. 23, 1999
Illinois, USA
Death: Dec. 15, 2002
Livingston County
Illinois, USA

3-year-old Joshua Gleeson (and his 5-year-old sister, Ashley) was abducted by his father, Patrick M. Gleeson, on November 25th in Dwight, Illinois, about 75 miles Southwest of Chicago. His body was pulled from the Des Plains River, on Sunday, December 15, 2002. The county coroner said the cause of death was two gunshots to the head.

The father, Patrick Michael Gleeson, was in police custody in Michigan where he was also charged with killing his girlfriend. He pleaded guilty to killing his live-in girlfriend and his two children, saying the murders fulfilled a vow he made to himself that the children would never again go home to their mother in Dwight, Ill. "I thought about it for years," Gleeson said. "Nov. 2nd is when I made the decision they weren't going back to their mother's house."
