Lost Sparrow director: ‘If I had known what I was getting myself into, I wouldn’t have made the film.’

Bobby and Tyler Billing ran away on a Monday. Their bodies were discovered on the train tracks on Tuesday. They were buried on Wednesday. Their family moved to their summer home on Thursday and barely spoke of the boys again.
In this video extra, Bobby and Tyler’s brother Chris Billing talks about lifting the veil of secrecy and shame from his family’s history, and why the police investigators’ conclusion that the boys had fallen asleep on the tracks never sat well with him.
Lost Sparrow premieres on Independent Lens on PBS on Tuesday November 16. Check your local listings.
