So much sadness – thanks to a commenter for posting more info about the 17 Year old stabbed to death at 8th and Upshur St, NW Sunday around 5:30pm.
There is a GoFundMe page for the family that simply and powerfully says:
“Jose Alexander Ochoa Unfortunately Passed Away On
December 20 , 2015 Because He Was Stabbed While Walking To His Girlfriend House.”
The Washington Post reported:
“Ochoa, a senior at Paul International High School, a charter school, had planned to go to college; he would have been the first in his family to do so.
Now, the family who just days ago was trying to figure out how to send Ochoa to college is struggling to find money for his funeral. They’ve put up donation boxes in local stores. They want to bury him in the District, but Maryland is less expensive.”
