Fund created to aid family of slain man

A Maryland community group on Wednesday launched a fund to support the family of Jose R. Rosales, the man who was killed in Centreville last week while protecting homeowners who had given him work.

Rosales, 39, was shot to death outside a house on Compton Road by two home invaders who then escaped.

Rosales was divorced and had two college-age sons in Guatemala whom he helped support by doing construction, maintenance and landscaping work for the Brar family, who credit him with saving their lives. A $26,000 reward is available for information leading to an arrest in the case.

CASA de Maryland, which works with Latino communities in the Washington area, has arranged for donated funds to be passed to the Rosales family in Guatemala. Checks should be mailed to CASA de Maryland, Jose Rosales Fund, 8151 15th Avenue, Langley Park, MD 20783.
