I grew up on a street with a lot of other kids, including one kid B. who was a member of a large Catholic family living a few doors down and attending our parish. Without going into detail there seemed to be some dysfunction in that family and the kids were always getting in trouble. I heard many years ago that this kid (now an adult in his 30s) had been murdered and I just assumed it was a garden variety local robbery/ drug deal gone wrong, as no details were given. I happened to find out today that B actually was a victim of a serial killer in a distant state, who tortured and brutally murdered his victims. Apparently it took several years to identify B’s body after it was first found. The killer was convicted of the murder of one of the other victims, and is on death row.
Please pray for the soul of B, and his now-deceased parents and a couple of his siblings who also died young.
