I wrote about my brother’s murder for a few reasons. Firstly, to share his story hoping that one day someone might read it and help us find his killer. Also, to speak the truth to a pain that many know but cannot express. Also, if I’m honest, to unburden myself and give away a bit of the burden of these emotions.
