When Justin Gasser was in middle school, he was already special. He was bright. He did well in school. He had plenty of friends. While all that is nice, it isn’t entirely special.

Feb. 7 -- At 1:14 p.m., Cindy Clark reported that a family member had been using her debit card account to pay bills for over a year. She said she permitted Lisa O’Brien, her niece, to use the card in the past and she suspects she had her accounts with Columbia Gas and her satellite television provider to make automatic withdrawals. Clark did not want to pursue criminal charges at the time and the woman agreed to pay back the nearly $3,000.
