I seen these two boy's bodies lying side by side & the impact of actually seeing it is nothing near reading it. Thank God there was 2 witnesses. More murders in the High St. district that will go unsolved by the crappy rude homicide investigators working that area.

I MISS MY BROTHER JABARI VERY MUCH, I DIDN'T KNOW THIS SITE EXISTED. THANK YOU GUYS FOR SHOWING LOVE TO MY FAMILY. THE CASE IS STILL OPEN AND THOSE 2 WITNESSES YOU SPEAK OF IS UNKNOWN TO THE FAMILY AND POLICE. THE FIRST COMMENT IS RIGHT, THE HOMICIDE INVESTIGATORS HAVE A CHIP ON THEIR SHOULDERS...

I was dreaming while napping when another dream cut that dream off. I seen my son, whom took a slug for another kid almost year before Jabori was murdered. He was with another youngster. Younger kids were on the side at a picnic table. The youngster w/ my son looked right at me & politely stepped back like he already knew I was his mother. My son came up to me & started telling me about an argument 2 of his friends were having, one being a bully. I jumped up out my sleep after telling him not to get involved, then called my nephew to see why he hadnt picked me up yet. He said he jus had to break up a huge argument between 2 of their friends. One was trying to get off on the other, whom didnt want to fight. Shocked, I told him about my dream & few months later seen Jabori's pic here. Shocked again, I said to myself, "OMG thats looks like the kid that was with my son in the dream!" Then later 4got about it. Couple nights ago their friends was over talking about past murders when Jabori's was brought up. I knew the name but couldnt recall from where? Then I remembered it was from here, the pix & message-dream! The youngsters then told me Jabori & my son got in a confrontation in the corner store near where Jabori died 3,4 yrs back. My son told him if he's talking to him they can take it outside. He said he didn't work for anybody, he's for himself & nobody don't run him, etc. Anyway Jabori was cool w/ it & said, "I don't have a problem w/ u young blood (or youngsta, something to that effect)or that block. It's not my business anyway. Man I respect you for that". And that was the beginning of a close friendship. I seen them in a 2nd dream at the beach again w/ younger kids, n my little neice, laughing & having fun. I called my neice & she said she had the SAME dream of being at a beach. Her mother said she woke up so happy b/c she got to c her big cousin & told her about the dream. I figure God answered my prayers & gave him something positive to do till I get there, babysitting,lol. He loved kids, so it all makes sense. All the kids n the vicinity spoke very highly of Jabori & b/c of a prior murder feel he didnt die for who he was, but for 'where' he was, due to how it came down & what was seen. Word is, the other boy was killed b/c he was w/ him. Evidently, the killer didnt know the boy lived there & approached them on foot 'running' from around the corner. Sry this is long, but it strengthened my faith & hopefully will bring the same spiritual relief to Jabori's parents, knowing the kids are fine & tucked away in a good, safe place. If it be of God's will, his family will find they're way back here to this forum.
