Additional information that could be useful to the case In 2011, Alazar and I went to Adama to find out more about his history.  We found Elsa who brought Alazar to Adama Hospital when he was relinquished in 2008.  Elsa was living in the little community inside the Gabrielle Church compound. According to Elsa & Alemitu (her friend), they found Alazar wandering the streets near Gabrielle Church.  They tried to find out who he belonged to, but no one knew him.  He was very sick and had a very bad skin disease.  They named him Alazar.  Alazar lived with Elsa for about 2 months while she nursed him back to health.  Then in June, they relinquished him to Adama Hospital.  They said they do not know anyone in his family or how long he was wandering the streets of Adama.
