Coming Soon: The Bobby Driscoll Story

"Mom! I've got something awful to tell you." -Bobby Driscoll in the 1949 film, "The Window." In 1969, two lost boys were playing in a deserted East Village tenement at 371 10th St. when they stumbled upon the dead body of a man stretched out on a cot, surrounded by beer bottles and religious pamphlets. He'd been there for days. There were no signs of foul play, and no drugs were found around him or in his system. The man hadn't been carrying identification on him when he died, so the police classified him as a "John Doe."The coroner determined that he had died on March 31, 1969. Authorities showed his picture around the East Village neighborhood for two weeks but were unsuccessful. Who was he and how had his life gone so wrong?
