Man in Jail on Racketeering Charges Temporarily Released to Attend Funeral of 4-Year-Old Son Who Was Tortured

Says he told authorities to let him get his son as he was turning himself in


The jailed father of tragic 4-year-old Myls Dobson was freed temporarily on Thursday, and walked out of a lockup saying he told several officials when he was collared that he needed someone to care for his boy.

"I begged the police to let me go get my son," Okee Wade, 37, said as he exited Atlantic County jail in New Jersey after a judge gave him a three-week furlough to attend his son's funeral this Tuesday.
