GREENACRES, Fl. - Greenacres Police say 43 year old Edward Parnell, also known as Kelvin Hansen, was found murdered inside a Greenacres home on White Pine Circle. His mother is in mourning.
"He is my child and I am going to miss him and that's about what I have to say," she said.
Parnell's mother says she came home around noon on Thursday and found someone had broken into her house.
Edward Parnell would stay at the house with her at various times.
"When I come in and find my house shattered and I called him and I go upstairs and I see blood all over. I didn't even see that his body was lying down there, you know, I just turned around in panic and just called police and police were the ones who found his body," said the victims' mother.
The grieving mother says the family is from Jamaica. Parnell has a wife and two children. Now the family wants to know who killed him and how to go on without him.
"One of his daughters doesn't even know about it, that he's gone. That's the little girl. The mom doesn't want to tell her that her father passed away. And we don't know how to tell her because she was like a part of him, like his finger," said Parnell's mother.
