A 24-year-old man found shot on Jan. 3rd on an East Oakland street became Oakland’s first homicide victim of 2007. He was identified as Verdair Laroy Mosley, also known as Curtis Twiggs. A tow truck driver spotted Mosley lying on the pavement in the 900 block of 89th Avenue at about 11:30 p.m. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene at 11:35 p.m.
Homicide Sgt. Rick Andreotti said police believe Mosley was killed elsewhere and left on 89th Avenue.

This has been the deepest and most hurtful pain in my life. I lost my other half, and it seems like yesterday. The phone call still comes to me when I got the word you were gone. My life has not been the same. I miss you, and I would do anything to bring you back. I remember our good days growing up and that you always came to me for comfort. Your memory lives with me forever.

I love you, I love you
Your twin Brother
