In the summer of 1996 Keith's family thought he had simply taken a last minute vacation. That's why no one reported him missing for almost a week. Just two days after his father reported him missing Keith was found near a rail yard, beaten to death with a metal pipe. It was clear by the level of decomposition that Keith had been dead since shortly after the last time his dad has spoken to him. So what happened? Who would have wanted Keith Polerecki dead?
