This week’s story is about a 25-year-old man named Victor Duenas Jr. who lived in Los Angeles. Everyone who knew Victor loved him. He didn’t have any issues with anyone and wasn’t involved with criminal activity. For this episode I spoke to Candy Villa, who is Victor’s mother. They truly had a special bond. Candy gave birth to Victor when she was only 15. So they grew up together and became best friends.

On December 7, 2016 just before 8pm, Victor was at his mother’s home. He was standing outside on the porch when someone approached him and fired shots at him. After hearing the sounds of gunfire, Candy ran to the front door to find Victor mortally wounded. He had staggered into the house and then collapsed. In his final moments, he asked his mom to help him. She began administering to CPR. Unfortunately, she couldn’t save him. He died in her arms.

Four years have passed since Victor’s death. The police have nothing. It’s unsure if the killer walked up to Victor or if the killer drove by in a car. There are no witnesses and if there, no one is talking. Victor’s parents are on an endless search for justice. Neither will give up on finding their son’s killer. Now on with the story of Vitor Duenas Jr. as told by his mother Candy Villa.

Do you know what happened to this young man? His family needs your help. Not only has the family lost a son, but Victor’s son will never grow up to know his own father.
