Family identifies victim

Family of Jesse Shaye Troy George-Raweater, 30, identified him as the victim on Sunday.

George-Raweater was a father to a four-year-old boy and will be remembered for his funny and goofy personality.

“He was cheeky, funny, loving and outgoing,” said his cousin Heather Criddle.

“He made major life changes in the past few months to lead a more healthy, happy, sober life. We were all so proud of him for taking the steps in the right direction… Words can’t describe how our family is feeling and the impact it will have.”
