Overview of King Walker
Where did these family members go?
King Rajan Walker is Diamond Bynum’s nephew. King was 2-years-old at the time of his disappearance. Like a typical toddler, his family notes that King loved to run. His favorite game at the time was to make people chase him as he zipped around.
On July 25, 2015, King Walker was at the Bynum family home.
King's mother dropped him off so that she could attend a class in Chicago. After a short early-afternoon nap, both Diamond and King slipped out of the house without their caretaker knowing. Within an hour of being gone, the police began investigating. Multiple eyewitness accounts place Diamond and King across Gary — but are any of the sightings viable?
Four days later after disappearing, investigators begin a large-scale search of nearby abandoned homes with numerous volunteers. The police employ K9 units, that track both Diamond and King’s scent down the street near a local gas station and train tracks — but ultimately the dogs don’t find anything else.
The official law enforcement searches are eventually called off in early August, with a lack of resources being noted as the cause.
Big questions remain.
Investigators are still trying to figure out which direction the pair wandered off to, whether or not they got trapped in an abandoned building, or if any of the eyewitness accounts have weight to them. Their cases are still unsolved.
