Recently, while re-organising my very extensive newspaper clippings which will take many more months of sustained effort and hardwork, I came upon my Chinese collection.
Among them was this original full spread uncut Lianhe Zaobao edition of 1993. Buried within its pages was this news report about the 2 missing Owen Primary schoolboys...Keh Chin Ann and Toh Hong Huat.
I don't normally read or buy the Chinese dailies but because of my interest in this particular case, I bought the paper just for this report.
The black and white photos of the 2 boys are very clear.
As far as I know, this case is still open. The 2 boys, only 12 years old back in 1986, could not simply have vanished into thin air...just like that.
I can only surmise that someone, somepersons, somewhere could be responsible for their disappearance on that fateful day in May 1986. And if that be the case, then those responsible would have full knowledge of whatever happened to them or where they are today.
We can only hope that their conscience will be sufficiently pricked one fine day and they will finally talk.
I know of such happenings where on the deathbed a dying person"confesses" and reveals some
horrific secrets usually of some hideous crime he or she had committed...but unknown to anyone else.
In my coming posts, I will touch on some of such cases.
