    Ben's father and family continue to be amazing.

    Every time I see an update on this case, I am reminded of the base level of human beings that took his life and protected the people who did heinous things to this young man. I hope justice continues to be served and punishments that are meted out are the maximum.

    Brilliant! Also loved more photos of Ben -- some I'd not seen before.

    Just as we were reminded summer 2018 that everybody has a Mollie (Tibbetts), those feelings apply to Ben. He was a good kid -- savagely beaten to death by those he thought were friends, just a week after his 16th birthday.

    I believe from what I've read that it had to do "something" with their sister.... it was in one of the articles in the beginning of this case.

    No specific motive reported in MSM.

    This is as close as it's been reported:

    In the confession shot by detectives at the scene of the crime in June 2018, Adamson tells detectives he and his brother, Benito Marquez, lured Eastman to a remote road, then beat him for a half-hour, sexually assaulted him and killed him.

    “I guess in a sick, demented way, I was trying to teach him a lesson,” Adamson tells the Lewis County detective about the sexual assault.

    [...]

    In the video, the detective and Adamson elude to a motive involving Ben’s actions with a female. The Lewis County Prosecutor would not elaborate to KOMO. ^^bbm

    Video shows chilling confession of Randle teen's killer
