“All we know is, at this point, that (he’s) a young man who didn’t deserve to die … didn’t deserve this heinous brutality of man against mankind,” Robert Cuffie.

“He was a young man we loved, and something good has to happen,” the pastor said. “He’s a young man we know was trained in the righteousness of God; and we pray that something positive or powerful will come from this.”

A police chaplain was at the scene, along with investigators, praying with the family.

According to police, the friend made the shocking discovery while checking on the pair after trying to get a hold of them all weekend.

Robert Cuffie said the female victim was a friend of his son. Her name was not immediately released.
