Angelica Relles wiping away the tears, missing her older brother, 29 year-old Jose Castro.

"Those are the hardest things. Knowing that I won't be able to tell him I love you and I didn't have the chance to say goodbye to him. I saw him sometime last week, about a week ago and I know we didn't see each other every single day, but he was my blood, my brother."

Her brother's body was found in a sugar cane field Tuesday, near the border of Canal Point and Pahokee. The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office won't say how he died as they investigate. But later in the afternoon told us he was fatally shot. Angelica said, "It hurts me the most and my family."

Castro's sister says he was a friendly person.

"We did have a close bond, we played around, he was really funny, " she said.

People like Amador Fonseca who knew him in the community, can't believe he's gone.

"He was a nice person and he had no problems with nobody." Another person told us, "He was a very nice guy and sometimes he came here to stock up on chips," said Fonseca. 
Family members are hoping his death is solved.

Angelica said, "A person here on earth you can hide the truth from anyone, but you can't hide nothing from God. So God will make His judgment and He will be the one making justice."
