In 2005, Eddie Tillman was a 14-year-old boy living in Brooklyn with his loving mother and sisters. On August 10, his mother dropped him off at summer school, gave him some lunch money, and watched as he entered the school. That was the last time she saw her son. Two months prior to his disappearance, he came out as gay and his family accepted him into loving arms. After his disappearance, his mother learned he was communicating with men online. Are one of these men responsible for his disappearance? Are the police correct when they say he ran away? What really happened to Eddie Tillman?
