Why is this mans address announced for the public and the case is not solved, why in the world can't his family have privacy. Since when do we publicly announce a family members address of a murder case unsolved. Why don't we just put guns to their heads too for a lil publicity huh?

This is his mother. Kerry had friends all over the country. He did not bother anyone and he did not expect anyone to harm him. As his mother I was concerned. He was over a friends house and the guys who murdered him just wanted to show how tough they were on an innocent victim.

Hi Big Brown, This was not Titan's owner but his fiance's son. Sadly Titan passed away on Friday. He ran into a tree while on a walk. He will sadly be missed also.
