Mystery Man Never Identified in Murder.

22 year old Roy Weber was struggling. He had drug problems and would prostitute himself to older men to support his habit. He was last seen alive on a video camera with a mystery man at the criminally troubled Cathedral Square Apartments in Providence, Rhode Island. On December 25th, 2003, Weber was found dead from a gunshot wound to the head near a parking lot on the Johnston and Wales Campus in Providence. Police believe that this mystery man either killed Weber or has answers as to who did.

Before he died, Weber had told people he was afraid for his life. A documentary was made over a decade later about the hardships and lives of men that made a living selling their bodies in Providence called “Invisible”. The documentary follows Rich Holcomb as he tries to gain support from the general public and lead these young men out of the lifestyle. Holcomb founded the organization “Project Weber” named after Roy Weber. Sadly, nearly two decades later, Providence Police still do not know who murdered Weber.
