It is believed that Jim was murdered on the morning of April 11, 2008, shortly after arriving home from a party he had attended near Barry College. The night before, Jim had worked the afternoon/evening shift as a waiter at the Chilis Restaurant in Aventura, FL. He was described by co-workers as a great guy with no enemies. He was a friend to all who met him. Police have found no motive for Jim’s murder and have no leads. Please help us bring Justice for Jim.
