And even at 85-years-old, Ovell Krell never gave up hope that she would one day locate her long-lost sibling. 74 years after she last saw Owen, Ovell finally located her brother. But this sad story unfortunately doesn’t have a happy ending.
No one in her family had seen him since he was sent to the Florida School for Boys as part of his punishment for stealing a car in 1940. Owen was only 14. Here's the crazy story.

But this week, the 97-year-old passed away after a 40-day battle with pneumonia.
Angie and Louis became very close after she heard his harrowing tale of survival. Zamperini, a former Olympian, spent 47 days lost at sea during World War II. He was then captured by the Japanese and spent 2 years in a POW camp!
If that’s not an AH-Mazing movie plot, we don’t know what is!
Before he died, Louis spoke about his famous friend, calling Miz Jolie:
“A human dynamo!”
He also said he was certain that she would tell his story the right way.
The Zamperini family issued their own statement after losing Louis, which read:
"Having overcome insurmountable odds at every turn in his life, Olympic runner and World War II hero Louis Zamperini has never broken down from a challenge. He recently faced the greatest challenge of his life with a life-threatening case of pneumonia. After a 40-day long battle for his life, he peacefully passed away in the presence of his entire family, leaving behind a legacy that has touched so many lives. His indomitable courage and fighting spirit were never more apparent than in these last days.”
Unbroken, the film based on Louis’s incredible life, is due in theaters on Christmas Day. You better believe we’re gonna see it!
Rest in peace, Louis!
