This is absolutely amazing and I am so unbelievably grateful and happy that individuals finally had the decency to step forward, even if it took this amount of money. Aya and his entire family deserve justice and this brings us one step closer to catching those sick individuals who so senselessly took the life of an incredible friend, son, cousin, nephew, and grandson.

I hope the killers of this fine young man are found and locked up for years--even if they turn out to be teenagers.
