From El Paso, Texas comes a report of a J.W. stabbed to death. Hector Hugo Juarez, 19, a graduate of Irvin High School, was killed by Jacob Ortiz, 17, a senior from the same school. Police believe the death was a result from a feud over a girl that began on Saturday. See "Family mourns son. Fatal stabbing linked to fight over weekend" at
J.W. Stabbed to Death
Sad... another unnecessary loss of life here.
Since Monday, rumors had circulated around the campus that Juarez was going to confront Ortiz because of the fight Saturday over a girl, Amaya said.
"That guy (Juarez) was known for doing real bad things to people. I would have felt threatened too," Amaya said.
It sounds to me (from reading the above) that maybe the victim wasn't a JW anymore, but grew up as one. The mother spoke of HER faith in the resurrection, but didn't say anything about his faith as a JW. Further, he was dating (or pursuing) a non-JW.
Whatever the case, his violent end was tragic and unnecessary.
