    Well I didnt knew him, but I feel sorry when things like this happens. He was young, full of life, inteligent and an officer. All I can say is my sincere condolence and prayer for the family and wife. May God help you in this terrible moment

    And for the person who did this, I want to let them know. That theres no place to escape.The worst enemy you can have is your mind and your heart. If you want to live in peace, confess your self and give up, its not easy, but even do the consecuences yuor going to be in, If you really feel sorry for what you did, God will help you, while you learn the lesson. Dont hide, it will be worst. for you. Know is time to to give your self a chance, instead of running away. Think about, tomorrow is late.

    There is no God so save your prayers and stop talking to yourself! It was his brother who killed him. Must have been God's plan? LMAO
