Around 3 weeks ago, 15-year-old Brandon Crisp ran away from home following an argument with his parents. As the argument revolved around Brandon’s Call of Duty 4 habits and the parent’s decision to take away his Xbox 360, much of the media associated the disappearance with the fact that the kid was a gamer.
Within two weeks, over C$50,000 in funds had been raised as a reward for information leading to his return, half of which was contributed by Microsoft. After 16 days, police called off the ground search.
Toronto TV station CP-24 reported this morning that a body believed to be Brandon’s was found in a rural area not far from his home in Barrie, Ontario. Details are still unclear as to how the body was found.
Our sincerest condolences to the family.
