Case 85

Tom Brown

When 18-year-old Canadian High School student Tom Brown failed to return home by his midnight curfew on Thanksgiving of 2016, his mother Penny immediately knew something was wrong. It wasn’t like Tom to stay out late or not respond to text messages.

The next day, Tom’s car was found abandoned on a dirt road approximately four miles from his home. Although the doors were all locked, one window was down and personal items including his phone, laptop and keys were all missing. When CCTV footage eventually emerged of the vehicle’s final movements, things became even more confusing.
