Students at Williams Middle School in the Rockwall ISD have been remembering their friend Justin Acevedo and saying good-bye to him this week with posters and other remembrances.
A small display has been set up at the school, according to administrative officials.
Grief counselors have also been made available to students at the school as early as this past Monday by RISD.
Photos of the remembrances are not currently available, since the family has asked us not to show them at this time.
Justin was killed by his father Roberto Acevedo Jr. in a murder-suicide last Friday night near Lake Lavon. They were residents of Rowlett and Rockwall County.
According to a confusing note left behind, the father wrote that he feared his son would go to jail for something he did, but that the family would not be able to obtain the needed defense for him.
According to school officials and police, Justin was a fine young man and good student with plenty of friends, who did not have any outstanding warrants or problems with the law, as best as can be determined.
We send our deepest condolences to Justin’s mother and two brothers for this tragedy.
