    Germany - Manuel Schadwald, 12, Berlin, 24 July 1993

    I noticed this on another forum and so I thought I'd add it here, because it's now been 20 years since 12 year old Manuel Schadwald disappeared. He went missing in Berlin on July 24th 1993. Last known to be heading to a leisure center, but never arrived. The police later received information that he might have been taken to the Netherlands/Belgium, but that hasn't been verified.

    It's been 20 years...so long. I just hope this boy will be found one day.

    I'm wondering what might happen to victims of child porn/sex trafficking etc. once they are grown. If Manuel had really been forced into this horrible world I hope he would have been able to escape one day.

    Another heartbreaking case.

    @MagnoliaMountain Terrific serious question imo. We know how tough it is for adults to process and work through trauma...how in heck can an adolescent do this successfully and come out ever feeling that s/he is normal or able to trust others?

    Somehow this case had caught my attention and these WS posts came up. Poor kid, and poor family! Looking on the 'Net I'm seeing many, many rumors Manuel died not long after his disappearance in Berlin possibly, and infinitely sadly, from torture during a child porno snuff film. It gets worse -- allegedly, a minister in the Belgian government either may have been in the film or present at the filming. Other less common speculations: Manuel was a victim of now-convicted-and-imprisoned German serial child predator / killer Martin N., der schwarze Mann, "The Figure in Black" (my translation -- apologies!); or that he died while being abused by a Church official.

    The scenario that seems to show up most often is that the poor lad was abducted out of his country by human traffickers and put to work "off the menu" in an otherwise-legal male brothel in Amsterdam. Supposedly his mother positively ID'd him as the boy in a kid-porn flick she was asked to screen for that reason. The rumors seem to run pretty strongly that fairly close to this time, he was tortured to death in the snuff film (apparently not the one his mom saw?). One site posts pics it says are the clothes Manuel was wearing when his body was found but the site gives no info about his body and its condition, how he was ID'd, or where he is buried.

    Sheesh. The things we're capable of...

    May God bless Manuel and his family, grant them peace+

    Errata
    The above post of 12-02-2013; third paragraph, first sentence, should read,

    "...brothel in ROTTERDAM."


    Third paragraph, fourth (last) sentence should read,

    "...clothes he was wearing when he died but the site give no info...


    With thanks, and apologies, to WS community; as well as special thanks to MagnoliaMountain and Pisces Cloud for very kind acknowledgement / recognition of a new member's first post!
