When police arrived, they found the store clerk who’d been stabbed to death and another man who was gravely wounded.

  1. I knew Joe’s 3 kids that are now without their dad. Joe had a troubled life but was the best dad he knew how to be. Joe wasn’t perfect but didn’t deserve to be stabbed to death. No one deserves that.
