B.C. Father blames system for letting kidnap suspect free

Convicted sex offender believed to have snatched, then returned, three-year-old Kienan Hebert

Paul Hebert, the father of a kidnapped B.C. boy who was returned seemingly unharmed on Sunday, is angry at the justice system for letting the man who police suspect abducted his child loose. Randall Hopley, a convicted sex offender, has been named as a suspect in Kienan Hebert’s abduction and remains at large. Hebert’s father says police wanted Hopley, who has a criminal record with sexual assault charges, locked up years ago, but the justice system let him go free.
