This historical tragedy centers around these five teenagers who went missing after they left home on a peaceful day. The story of missing persons is as old as mankind. During wars too, people set off a journey of no return. Therefore, the story of missing has been with man from time immemorial. 

However, in 1978, on a late spring day, the teenagers from Newmark in New Jersey left and didn't return home. Some write-ups would say they vanished. A testament that informs us there was no trace of their absences. That day, they had played a basketball and had gone home to put on something else prior to meeting up once again. After this day they were never seen again.

For a long time, the police's investigation couldn't yield fruit as they were dumbfounded with respect to what occurred. There was never any proof or remains gathered. It was like that for a long period of time.

The missing young teenagers were named "The Clinton Avenue Five". Be that as it may, after 30 years in 2008, while in police custody, there was a wee bit of irrelevant charge, a man named Philander Hampton admitted that he and his cousin, Lee Anthony Evans, helped the youngsters to their home by promising them jobs.

The promising teenagers, while at his home, apparently took a few weed, and Evans and Hampton chose to murder them. They were secured in a room wardrobe at gunpoint, and afterward Evans supposedly set the house ablaze with the teenagers inside. 

After investigators confirmed the story, both Evans and Hampton were arrested and charged with felony murder and incendiarism.

In any case, Justice was rarely completely served. How? Hampton later concede to the killings during his August 2011 preliminary, and was condemned to ten years in jail and was requested to pay $15,000 in relocation expenses upon his release. He was released early from prison in February 2017.

Evans would later present himself at his November 2011 trial and was absolved. He later He later filed a case against the prosecutor as well as City's police department claiming that he was a victim of inordinate prosecution. 

It is so tragic that the missing boys is yet to get real justice, and until today, the remains of the missing boys have never been anywhere
