Benjamin James Lolley was only given 16 years in this life.For reasons unknown he was forced to attend Salem4youth. It is a residential program based on religious belief combined with isolation. For the first 6 weeks the teenagers are not allowed to communicate with their parents.
In the past there had been a case of misconduct at the ranch. Something made it impossible for this young man to graduate and go on in life. We don't know the reason but it seems that he made a tragic decision. It seems awful that such a young life should end distanced from his family but sadly it was the case.
May he find peace where he is now.
