Boy Missing: The Search for Kyron Horman
Author: Rebecca Morris
Genre: True Crime, Non-Fiction
It’s one of the most shocking unsolved missing-child cases in the world. Where is Kyron Horman? Why hasn’t the woman who police suspect is responsible for his 2010 disappearance—Kyron’s stepmother—been charged? That the seven-year-old disappeared from his grade school got parents’ attention worldwide. The case’s twists —adultery, sexting, murder-for-hire—keep the story in the media spotlight. New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Morris tells the minute-by-minute, day-by-day story of the long investigation, the search for Kyron, and his family’s heartache. Based on years of research and interviews with Kyron’s family, “Boy Missing” also examines what recourse families have as they wait for a loved one to be found. It challenges a common assumption in no-body cases: that prosecutors must wait until there is a confession or remains are found. No-body cases can be prosecuted successfully.
This book was a tough one for me to read. Not because it was poorly written (because it is wonderful), but because it’s a true story of an unsolved crime involving a missing boy. As a mother, it’s hard to think that something like this could happen to us. It’s hard not to form a theory while reading this story. I found myself googling the case and trying to find updates once I finished the book. It’s a sad story but definitely worth the read.
I give Boy Missing: The Search for Kyron Horman by Rebecca Morris 4 out of 5 stars.
