"While examining the children after their discovery,
local physicians were especially worried about the dapper
little boy called "Chops." Doctors and police
questioned him for an hour without ever receiving a
verbal response of any kind. The boy pointed, shrugged,
nodded and shook his head - whistling a tune the entire
time but but never uttered a single, solitary word.
The doctors assumed he was mute and couldn't speak so
they asked The Matron if this was indeed the case. She
laughed and told them to wait until he got really excited
about something. Intrigued, one of the police officers
took a candy bar out of his pocket and gave it to Chops.
Suddenly, all of the lights in the station turned off
and a bright spotlight hit him.
