27-Year-Old Model’s Father Speaks Out After Son’s Death

“I don’t know if there’s anybody who could say anything negative about him. It’s just a tragedy,” he said.

“I’m sending all my love to his family and friends who lost someone so special. I know we will meet again one day but right now I just want to hug him. Rest well J we all love you so much! Send love to…
