12 year old Justin was murdered here Tuesday in the wee hours of the morning and will be laid to rest today.
Charged in the killing is a 34 year old registered sex offender who served time twice for sex related crimes here and in Missouri and was released a man free to repeat his crimes. And he did. He tricked an innocent child through internet and cell phone messages.
He was a taxi driver and the furor here above the sheer horror of the senseless act of taking the life of an innocent child is the question and outrage of how the city could have approved this man for a permit to drive a cab and why the cab company turned its face on the criminal record of this sick perverted monster.
Gone is the life of a young boy, a good student, a treasure to be around and the pride and joy of his family who are now left with emptiness and horrible thoughts of what his last moments were like.
Prayers are with his grieving family.
A new little angel celebrates Easter with Jesus.
