Ben was a boy who loved life he lit up any room when he walked in! He was the one who could make you smile when there was something not worth smiling for! He loved his family, dirtbikes, hanging out with friends, and miami dolphins! He was perfect to his dad bj Eastman and his mom elma bowen just ask them!! On june 24 he was going to go camping with his bestfriend having no idea what so ever that would be the last time he would be seen again. He was going to have fun with his friends. But they had different plans they lured him and assulted him tgey kicked him in his chest area over 150 time, brutally raped him, then  after torturing him they beat him in the head with a rock, which was what killed him.  This has devasted our family. Broke the community.  We won't ever be the same again.  Ben touched hearts across this nation.  My brother wants to honor him by having a memorial statue of Ben made and what better way to honor him?  So anyone who would like to donate for that here is the way!! Thank you in advance! Cathy. (Bens aunt) #sharethelove #justiceforben I have been in contact with big statues out of utah and got a quote for35,000 so we will see how well this does and hopefully we will have a memorial statue soon! Ok here is the new plan.  My   name is cathy i am bens aunt. I live in glenoma wash. and the one who was asked to start this page.  We had originally planned for a memorial statue at the school ben attended but that didn't go as planned so no has decided to donate to the school for sports and wood shop to help kids that want to participate but don't have the financial ability. The money will be used for kids at bens school and will be something that will last hopefully forever. 100% of the donations will go directly to whitepass school in honor of Ben!! Thank you for your continued support and kind words
