“We heard that, we call him ‘meatloaf,’ that he got stabbed and killed,” said neighbor Michelle Jackson. “And I’m like I don’t know I’m just getting off of work so I’ve been doing a little investigation myself trying to find out because he’s like a son to me. He’s my older son’s best friend and he’s like a son to me”
