In 2011 Timothy Pitzen Went Missing, But Eight Years Later A Stranger Pretended To Be Him

It seemed to be a day like any other – but it turned out to be anything but. James Pitzen dropped his son, Timmy, off at school on the morning of May 11, 2011. By the time the dad went to pick up the six-year-old that afternoon, however, the little boy was gone. And as the months went by, few leads subsequently arose in the case – yet Pitzen nevertheless held out hope. Then, eight years later, it seemed that the Illinois man’s wish to see his son again had finally come true. Someone stepped forward alleging to be the missing boy.

A party in the early 2000s had originally brought Pitzen together with his future wife, Amy Fry. And the pair had apparently hit it off, too, as they subsequently embarked on a long-distance relationship – although the going wasn’t always easy. You see, Fry reportedly struggled with depression stemming from her first divorce – she had had three husbands prior to her relationship with Pitzen – and these feelings appear to have come to a head in 2003.
