On March 27, 1993, two friends, 9-year-old Jonathan, and 13-year-old Charlie, left home for a bike ride on a beautiful March morning and never returned. Their ride was cut short when a sexual predator murdered them both. For 8 years their case was left unsolved. In 2001, the murderer was finally found through a DNA database. In April 2004, a jury voted unanimously for the death penalty. On September 1, 2004, a California judge sentenced the murderer to death row at San Quentin State Prison. He died on July 3, 2020, of complication due to COVID-19.
We were finally able to put our boys to rest.
The Jonathan Sellers & Charlie Keever Foundation (JSCK) was founded by Dennis Sellers and Milena (Sellers) Phillips in 2005.
Our mission is to promote the safety and well-being of children through education in preventing child abduction and exploitation and provide support for families who've lost a loved one at the hands of another.
Our vision and my greatest desire are to ensure that this tragedy doesn't happen again.
