ALBANY COUNTY, N.Y. -- Two voice analysis experts have reviewed an interview between Jaliek Rainwalker's adoptive parents, Stephen Kerr and Jocelyn McDonald, and WTEN reporter Anya Tucker and they have come up with the same conclusions as police.

T.J. Ward and Tom Winscher worked with the Find Jaliek Task Force to determine the truthfulness and or evasiveness in statements made about their adopted son Jaliek. While the pair says a lot of what Stephen Kerr said in his interview seems truthful and they are not making accusations that he had anything to do with his son's disappearance, something isn't quite right.

"His whole description of the event as it occurred, the evening that Jaliek showed up missing, there was a lot of deception in that statement, there was a lot of weaknesses in the things that he was claiming occurred," said T.J. Ward, Vice President of Voice Analysis Technologies.

Ward and Winscher concluded that they were not saying that Stephen Kerr had anything to do with Jaliek's disappearance, but that he should be looked at as a person of interest and a suspect in the case.

Greenwich police have already named Kerr as a person of interest in the case. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
