Mom Will ‘Never Be The Same’ After Son’s Murder By Online Gaming Partner

Mom Will ‘Never Be The Same’ After Son’s Murder By Online Gaming Partner, The American mother of a 14-year-old boy killed by an online gaming partner in Britain says she did everything she could to protect her son: She limited his access to electronics, installed parental controls and forbade him from using the same server as a boy she had grown suspicious of.
However, though Lorin LaFave, 47, said she warned both British police and her son, the boy, Breck Bednar was murdered by someone he met online on Feb 17.
Computer engineer Lewis Daynes, 19, pleaded guilty last month to Breck’s stabbing murder that day in Daynes’ house in Grays, Essex, England. The teenagers had been playing games online for several months, despite LaFave’s efforts to put an end to their relationship.
Police discovered Breck at the house with knife wounds. They gave first aid but the Christian school student was declared dead by medical staff a short time later.
Daynes was arrested at the scene and charged with murder. Last month, in an unexpected turn of events, he pleaded guilty of stabbing Breck.
Now, LaFave originally from Waterford, Michigan, but now living in England, is behind an effort to raise awareness about what she says are dangers of online gaming.
“I want Breck’s tragedy to help open the eyes of everyone to recognize the dangers of online predators,” she said in a statement. “It is a very real danger today.”
“People think it only happens to anti-social kids, but it’s just not true,” she told ABC News.
