Details: Twenty-four-year-old Adam Hecht was the son of a famous movie producer and after graduating from Beverly Hills High School, he got a job as a tennis instructor. On January 10, 1989, he and his brother, Harold, went to breakfast at a local restaurant, and in the front of it they encountered a street person. A few minutes later, he left the table and went outside and talked to the street person. Harold asked him but he did not say why he went to the man. After they left the restaurant, Harold saw him talking to the man, whose name was Tony. He later invited him to move in with him. Soon afterwards, he brought him to visit his mother, Martine, and she felt uncomfortable. He talked about him to her during the entire meal, and he said that he was helping him mature. Afterwards, he began visiting Skid Row and hanging out with the street people. He and Tony began to do several rituals together, and one time he burned his hand. On June 10, 1989, Harold arrived at Adam's apartment, after he had not heard from him in several days. Tony was there, but he said that Adam was not there and he didn't know where he was. A few days later, Martine went there, and Tony began grabbing onto her, trying to give her a kiss, and then saying "I'm your son!". The Hechts then reported Adam missing and had Tony evicted in July. Authorities investigated the possibility that he was responsible for Adam's disappearance, but no evidence was found to support that theory. One month after he vanished, his car was found abandoned on a Beverly Hill side street. On the windshield were several parking tickets, and inside his keys were still in the ignition, and his wallet and jacket were found in it as well. His family does not believe that he decided to disappear, but the authorities claim that their is no evidence of foul play in the case. Some believe that Tony knows more about the case then he said, and that Adam may have been murdered by him or someone on the streets. One year after he vanished, Harold ran into Tony on the streets and asked if he knew what happened to Adam, but he said that if he just stayed on the streets for a while, he would know. His disappearance remains unsolved.
Suspects: Tony was originally suspected in the case, but authorities later learned that he knew nothing of Adam's whereabouts.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the October 17, 1990 episode.
