Just can't wait to hear the motive on this one.
He looked sideways at the kid, kid thought he was a member of a rival crew, strong arm robbery gone wrong...blah, blah, blah.
These guys are all tough until caught then its "I didn't do it". Just plead guilty to being a stupid, gutless coward and we'll see what we can work out in terms of sparing your life.

Victor Jonas was one of my best friends. And I deeply miss him. I just hope this this is the right guy and that he gets all the time in jail that he deserves. Because he took a great kid away from us all. Victor was a good guy and was also a college student who had so much life ahead of him but thanks to this evil person he is being buried on saturday. But he will always be remembered, missed, and loved. I just wish we all had more years to remember him by.R.I.P. Victor Jonas...I Love You Always And Forever

It has been two days since my nephew was laid to rest. I miss him already. I'll miss him just showing up at my house and chilling with my daughters. I'll miss how he used to tease them as if he was the oldest of them (he was the youngest). He was my nephew through marriage, but he was always like a son to me. I loved him so and still do. I am trying to cope with this madness but it is not easy. When the doves were released at his homecoming, two of its feathers landed on my daughter, one on the chest and one on her foot. She said she had been praying for a sign that he was alright every since she found out that he was in the hospital!!! She felt comfort after she held the feathers. She said that was a sign telling her that he was alright. In the hospital, they would not let him see anyone and he wanted to make a list of the people that he wanted to see. He never got to make that list.
RIP CrownVic.
I love you.

Please stop by Vic's guestbook and send your condolences.
