On April 26, 1970, 11-year-old Terry Bowers, Jr. was killed in his sleeping bag while out camping with his fellow Boy Scouts, Troop 275 from Darby’s Blessed Virgin Mary Church.
To this day, no suspects have been confirmed in the case
For 51 years this family has been praying for answers.
I have been asked by the family of Terry Bowers to share this information here on the Finding Subjects Podcast page, as they are longtime personal friends of mine.
