Quoting the anonymous mother:
“He was a good kid,” she said. “He gave me a nice card on Mother’s Day. Everyone says he was a zombie. He was no zombie. That was my son.”
and an anonymous girlfriend:
“That wasn’t him, that was his body but it wasn’t his spirit. Somebody did this to him,” she said.
“He loved God. He always read the Bible. He would give you knowledge on the Bible. Everywhere he went his Bible went. When he left he had his Bible in his hand.”
Sgt. Javier Ortiz, vice president of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police, said officials won’t know for certain whether drugs played a role in the attack until toxicology reports are completed in a month or so.
