He was Kit Nelson's brother. Kit killed him when he was 11 years old and their parents were both away. He decided to do this because he was jealous of how much love his mother gave Elliot. Kit killed him by strangling him in one of the bomb shelters near by. Even though the mother knew that Kit had done this terrible deed, she helped him cover it up by saying that Elliot died of scarlet fever and then burned the body.
