Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Everett Jr. was last seen on July 5, 1996 in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois. His father, Everett Thompson Sr., owned the E.A.T. and Company restaurant in the Park Manor neighborhood of the city, and they lived in the 8100 block of south Rhodes Avenue with Everett Jr.'s mother, Lydia, and brother, Andrew.
Lydia's brother, Kenneth White, had moved in with the Thompsons in February 1996 after his release from prison; he had served a term for rape. The Thompsons' home had been Lydia's father's and he had passed it to his three children; each held a one-third share in the property.
The Thompson family was unhappy about White's presence in the home, and Everett's side of the family referred to him as a "freeloading houseguest." On July 3, about four months after White moved in, Lydia called 911 to report that he had threatened to kill her with an ax. Police responded to the scene, but the dispute had died down by the time they arrived, and they left without making any arrests.
On July 5, Everett's father called him at work. Their conversation was normal, but in the middle of it, Lydia called her husband, frantic, and begged him to come home immediately. She said Kenneth had chased her around the house with an ax and she'd locked herself in the bedroom. Everett told his father about what had happened, ended their conversation, and left the restaurant. One of his employees was the last person to see him.
Two hours later, White arrived at the E.A.T. and Company driving Everett's van, told the manAge at the time of disappearance: r that Everett had been arrested after a car accident, and then left. White was wearing white sneakers, and the manAge at the time of disappearance: r noticed red smears on them.
Twelve days later, on July 17, Everett's parents asked the police to check on the family, as no one could get in touch with them. The police went to the Thompson home and found only White, who said his sister and her family were fine and had taken an impromptu vacation to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where Everett was born and where his parents lived. The police could find no evidence of foul play and the Thompsons' van was missing, which supported White's story. They left without investigating further.
Over the next few weeks, White told various versions of the impromptu vacation story to people, variously claiming that the Thompsons took a bus to Philadelphia, that they took a bus to Minneapolis, Minnesota, or that they went to Hawaii. White was driving the Thompsons' van when he was arrested for falsifying Lydia's signature on a check, but the police didn't realize this contradicted his earlier statement to them.
In late July, Everett's parents traveled to Chicago and tried to find the family, investigating on their own and speaking to employees of the E.A.T. and Company, but their efforts were unsuccessful. They asked the police to investigate further. The restaurant manAge at the time of disappearance: r told the police about White's statement the day they last saw Everett, but there was no record of Everett getting arrested or being associated with a traffic accident.
Authorities learned that in the Thompsons' absence, Kenneth had forged Lydia's and his other sister's signatures on documents to sell their home. An inspector visited the home before the sale was made and noticed that one toilet and one bathtub had recently been painted red and the kitchen floor had been torn out. These changes had been made sometime after the police visited the home on July 3, as they had examined the house and the kitchen floor had been fine and there were no red bathroom fixtures. By the time the police uncovered the illegal sale, the new owners had already had the house gutted for renovation.
The police interviewed White several times, but did not have probable cause to arrest him. He moved to a trailer in Gary, Indiana. In July 1997, the FBI searched in and around his trailer and found a pair of men's gym shoes and a boy's sock, both bloodstained. In November 1997, White was arrested for failure to register as a Gender : offender. He was released, but was arrested again the following month for bank fraud; he had allegedly forged Lydia's name on a check for over $13,000.
In a court hearing about the bank fraud, the prosecutor claimed White "ax-murdered" the Thompson family. The theory was that White wanted the Thompson home to himself and murdered his sister and her husband and children in order to get it.
On Christmas Day, 1997, White hanged himself in jail. He did not leave a note, and before his death he did not reveal any possible information he may have concealed regarding the Thompsons' cases.
Investigators believe White probably murdered the Thompsons on July 5 or July 6, but they never found enough evidence to charge him, and searches of both White's home in Gary and the Thompsons' home in Chicago turned up no sign of human remains.

In many countries, statistics on missing children are not even available; and, unfortunately, even available statistics may be inaccurate due to: under-reporting/under-recognition; inflation; incorrect database entry of case information; and deletion of records once a case is closed. The lack of numbers, and the discrepancy in the numbers that do exist, is one of the key reasons why ICMEC developed and advocates for the Model Missing Child Framework, which assists countries with building strong, well-rounded national responses, and facilitates more efficient investigations, management, and resolution of missing children cases. We firmly believe that one missing child is one too many, and we are committed to improving the global understanding of and response to missing and abducted children. Here is a look at missing children in the United States. There are several different types of missing children: runaways, family abductions, lost or thrown away and non-family abductions. Advances in technology, communications through public alerts and greater cooperation from law enforcement have facilitated the recovery process. Statistics According to the FBIs National Crime Information Center (NCIC) Missing Person File, there are 89,637 active missing person records, of which juveniles under the age of 18 account for 30,396 (34%) of the records. (as of December 31, 2020) AMBER Alert AMBER (Americas Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response) Alerts are emergency messages broadcast when a law enforcement agency determines that a child has been abducted and is in imminent danger. The broadcasts include information about the child and the abductor, including physical descriptions as well as information about the abductors vehicle - which could lead to the childs recovery. The AMBER Alert system began in 1996 and was named in honor of Amber Hagerman, a 9-year-old who was abducted in Arlington, Texas, and murdered. All 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands have AMBER Alert plans in place to help find missing children in danger. As of December 2020, the AMBER Alert program has been credited with the safe recovery of 1029 children.. This, however, is only a snapshot of the problem.
