Black History Month: Edgar Orlando Forbes

In honor of Black History Month I’m profiling one African-American MP every day on this blog for the month of February. Today’s case is Edgar Orlando Forbes. He was 21 and a student at the University of West Florida when he disappeared from Belle Glade, Florida on October 28, 1995.

Forbes got into an argument and left the house at 2:15 a.m., wearing only a t-shirt and boxer shorts. He was never seen again and the car he was driving, a Honda Civic Del Sol, never turned up either.

If I were a betting person, I’d say he and the car are probably in one of Florida’s numerous waterways.
