Area Student Disappearances Raise Concern

The recent disappearance and mysterious drowning of Northwestern University student Trevor Boehm was a tragic event that I find very disturbing. Several years ago I read a story regarding numerous very similar incidents which have occurred in and around the upper Midwest.

The Edgewater Crime Blotter has just learned that there is yet another frightening case developing. This time a 19 year old IIT student named Benjamin Collen has been reported missing (his photo is above). He was last seen the night of Friday, November 14th just past midnight. Benjamin was reportedly walking east on 31st St. toward the lake. He was wearing jeans and dark t-shirt, but no coat. At this time there are no leads in the case.

If you have any information about Benjamin please contact the Chicago Police, or call (312) 808-6300 immediately.

Please let us know your thoughts on these cases….
