Jeremiah Silas, 17, is feeling the pain of losing his friend Dennis King, known to family and friends as Boo Man. On May 19 or 20, King, 15, was brutally murdered in the Borchert Field neighborhood, where both boys grew up.
Silas and King participated in Andre Lee Elllis’ “We Got This” youth employment and mentoring program and Silas is turning to Ellis, who he calls “Pops,” for consolation and guidance in dealing with his grief.
