Peter J. "Peter Boy" Kema Jr. was a boy who went missing in 1997. Initially claimed to be alive by his parents, they eventually pleaded guilty to manslaughter.


His parents have maintained he was in the care of a family friend, "Auntie" Rose Makuakane, who has never been located and whose existence has never been proven. It is believed he died from septicemia as a result of an untreated wound from longstanding abuse from his parents, and he was not given proper medical treatment in his parents' attempt to not be arrested. Both parents have been charged with his murder, but his body has never been found. Peter Boy's father has agreed to lead investigators to his body, and if he fails, his sentence may be increased to twenty-five years.
