WALLED LAKE (WWJ ) – Visitation is being held Monday in Walled Lake for 19-year-old Jacob Burns, one of the victims of a double murder suicide last week.
Burns would have turned 20 years old on Easter Sunday, a birthday he shared with his good friend Kyle Morgan.READ MORE: Eviction Moratorium Update: With CDC Extension Unlikely, What Will Happen To Renters?
“That was my best friend (I’m doing) the best I can, I guess,” said Morgan. “Just trying to be here for everyone.”
“It just doesn’t make any sense … it’s all over a … relationship – it’s just … I don’t know how that kid could do this,” he said.READ MORE: T-Shirts Designed By Industry Club Youth Available As Free Gift At Select Downtown Detroit Stores
Morgan is referring to Brian White, who police say went to the home of his ex-girlfriend and killed her 46-year-old mother, Angela Staperfene, and Burns with an ax and then killed himself.
Morgan says he and five other friends got tattoos with Jacob’s name to remember him.
“He was a great guy, he’d do anything for anyone, nice, funny. Just the kind of friend anyone would want to have,” added Morgan.MORE NEWS: Henry Ford Health Doctors Bust COVID Vaccine Myths, They Say Being Circulating Online
