Iraq Veteran Murdered After Responding To Craigslist Posting To Buy IPad For Christmas Present
Via Daily Mail:
An Iraq veteran who thought he was buying an iPad as a Christmas present after responding to a Craigslist posting, has been shot dead in an Indianapolis parking lot by the fake sellers.
New-dad Jim Vester, 32, was lured to an address on Wednesday in the west side of the city and brothers Tyron Kincade, 19, and Tyshaune Kincade, 18, have been arrested after Vester was shot dead leaving behind his one-year-old son, Gavin and wife, Jamie.
In the wake of the senseless murder, nearly 1,500 people have donated $58,000 to a YouCaring.com fundraiser set up by Vester’s family for the man described as a ‘great cook, loving father and faithful man.’
‘He would drop everything and cross town to help you and your family,’ friend Master Sgt. Jerry Wurm said.
Vester was a career military man, with 12 years of service in the Indiana National Guard, including a year-long tour of duty in Iraq in 2006.
‘I was (always) telling young soldiers that never had Jim’s food, I said, ‘Hey if Jim’s cooking, you better show up because it’s good and you won’t be disappointed,’ Wurm said.
Tyron Kincade, 19, and Tyshaune Kincade, 18, both of Indianapolis, are being held without bond in the Marion County Jail on charges of murder and robbery.
