Rest in peace, little cousin.
While they were waiting for the transportation vehicle, he somehow escaped...although he was handcuffed. He wound up jumping into a nearby river, & drowned. When they pulled him out of the river, he only had one hand in cuffs.
That's really all I can say about the details, for now. There's obviously a huge investigation going on, because seriously, how the hell did he escape?! Our family has many, many unanswered questions...some of which we might never have the answers to.
The bottom line is...a 23 year old man died. My aunts son is dead. My cousin who has been caring for my father in Florida, just lost his younger brother. I don't care what he was going to be charged with. He should not be dead.
Life isn't always pretty. In fact, it can be downright ugly. RIP to my cousin who used to ask me to paint his nails when he was a little boy. xoxo
