    The picture depicting Joseph Toy is incorrect! Please correct this!


    I’m actively following the news story about Joseph Toy – he was my 7th grade teacher.

    The picture depicted in is incorrect. Would you be able to correct this. I wouldn’t want to see an innocent man with the same name to become targeted.

    This other article has the correct picture, a mugshot of Joseph Toy

    Thank you!

      Thank you so very much. That was a terrible mistake – teacher, same name, same general area.
      I have made the switch. Please let me know if you ever see errors
