I was walking to the back and I was going to see my daughter to get some food from her uncle and when I looked in the next yard I saw someone lying down there so I called my uncle and when I called him and asked him who that was down there but when I looked all I saw was the blood pants. When I saw those pants I sort of recognized who it was because two days before I had seen the guy in the same clothes. We went to play ball and stuff and for two days we didn’t know where he was. He wasn’t a bad person that he would go out and do something to someone, he was a helpful person.”
