It’s 2016, and Sylvia Wilson’s eldest son, Edgar, has been missing for a staggering 30 years. Back in 1986 the 20-year-old vanished without a trace from the Canadian city of Kitchener, leaving his heartbroken mother to fear the worst about his presumably tragic fate. But now a man 80 miles away has slowly begun to recall snippets of a previous life – and the decades-old mystery may finally start to unravel.

Born in April 1965, Edgar – who adopted the surname Latulip – was troubled from a young age. In fact, the boy was just at kindergarten when his mother, Wilson, first began to spot warning signs. Sadly, though, Latulip’s wild conduct would turn out to be the least of his mom’s worries.

As Latulip grew older, then, his behavioral problems became too much for Wilson to bear, and so he was placed in a children’s medical institution in the Canadian city of Montreal. In addition, the boy was given a prescription for anti-psychotic drugs. But this would prove to be just the start of the mother and son’s tumultuous journey together.
