    "Squirt" Lewis was reported missing on the morning of Saturday, July 28th. 1991. Initially, his mother's boyfriend, Maurice Martin, told police that he had left the boy in the car at the local Giant food store while he ran in for groceries, but when he returned, Squirt was gone.

    What investigators learned was that in the year or so that Martin had been in the families life, the little bou had been the subject of extreme and constant abuse at the hands of his mother's boyfriend. The grocery store story had been concocted to cover what had really happened.

    Martin was convicted May 1992 of 3rd degree murder and received the maximum sentence; 10-20 years in the SCI at Camp Hill. Squirt's body has never been found.
