  1. I just saw the story on 48 hours and was looking to find out if the killer had gone to trial. Its so disheartening to hear of these acts, especially on a young man who has done so much for this country and had a whole life ahead. May he rest in peace.

    • I also saw it on first 48 and googled to find an update. This happened in late 2015 and it seems the murderer hasn’t gone to trial. Hmm…
