I’m only doing this because I want to bring awareness to some1 killing my uncle vern Vincent Roper and getting them caught,” he captured under a picture of his uncle, which has since been deleted. “Palmdale California isn’t that big of a place so I know someone knows what happened and you will be caught. My last uncle in America man I can’t believe this…this s**t hurts. The last pic he sent me. Can’t remember the last time I felt pain like this. Can’t stop crying.. everything I do is gonna be for you. #palmdale #california.”
