Grooming works through shared interests. He was grooming hundreds of boys all over the country through Roblox, Minecraft, Battlefield, FIFA and Call of Duty… any game that’s out there. He’d build relationships… then focus on one boy… get bored… then another. Breck was his final target.
Lorin Lefave (Breck Bednar’s mother)

Game Over tells the harrowing story of Breck Bednar, who was groomed via the internet and brutally murdered on 17 February 2014 by someone he met online. Breck’s story is told in Mark Wheeller’s potent ‘verbatim’ style, using the words of his family, friends and the killer.

Since 2003, Mark Wheeller’s plays have been routinely set for GCSE Drama examinations, making him one of the most-studied contemporary playwrights alongside Alan Ayckbourn and John Godber. His plays include Hard to Swallow, Missing Dan Nolan and Too Much Punch For Judy. His play One Million To Stop The Traffik, about human trafficking, won the All England Theatre Festival.

The Breck Bednar Foundation

The Breck Foundation is a charity founded by Lorin LaFave after the tragic loss of her 14-year old son, Breck Bednar, in 2014, through online grooming.

Breck was groomed while enjoying his passions of computing and gaming. We want to ensure that no child is harmed through grooming and exploitation while enjoying their time on the internet. Prevention through education is essential.


Our ‘play virtual, live real’ motto reminds everyone to never meet up alone in a private place with someone they have met only online.
