Details:
This young man was visiting his sister at NYU when he was killed, probably during a robbery. Some months later, his father’s laptop was stolen. On the laptop were his father’s pictures of his deceased son. In an open letter published the next April, he asked the thief to return the laptop anonymously. He had this to say about his son:

In September, I lost my special-needs son as he was visiting his sister, who is studying at NYU. He was both autistic and learning delayed. It was a senseless and violent death over a box of Cheerios and $8.12. That night, I really lost both my children, emotionally. A little over a year before, I unexpectedly lost my wife.
