He was a bright and goofy teenager who loved legos, being a shoulder for his loved ones, and would give his last dollar if someone else needed it. To this day, nobody knows exactly why he was murdered, his family and loved ones haven’t received closure, and Courtney deep dives into this case in an effort to rekindle his memory as Justin, like all victims, had a voice that needs to be heard. If he were still alive today, it is firmly believed that he would be advocating on the behalf of those that are deemed outcasts and misfits.
