On July 3, 2004, Emilio Boyzo was drinking with some friends in Fort Thompson. He chose to drive home on his own and, about 12 miles from his destination, lost control of his car and went off the road into a gully.
Emilio loved playing basketball. He left behind a loving family and a sister whom he never got to meet. His family is dedicated to reminding every young person that underage drinking and driving can leave a family mourning forever.
