This event will be held in response to the murder of Elliot Frazier this past July 5th in the 7400 N block of Paulina. The young man murdered was a Gangster Disciple. He hung out on Howard Street late at night. He drank a lot (unless the hard liquor bottles were just props on Facebook). He was in jail a couple of times for robbery and weapons possession, a pending charge of fighting/intimidation. There was a falling out between him and the other members of the gang (a suspicion found in the Jargowood email).
He was also the son of Wayne Frazier, a respected and valued member of Joe Moore's Ward 49 office.
The identity of the decedent was confirmed by commenter MCL yesterday, "Thanks for providing this information to the community. Every senseless death is tragic, no matter who the victim. I've known Wayne Frazier for over 25 years and I knew his son Elliot when he was a small child (as many RP residents). Despite what others may think, I think this is important news story for our community and certainly SHOULD have been covered and seriously reported on by those who try to lay claim to being legitimate, locally focused media? (i.e., where's DNAinfo on this?!)"
Making this death all the more perplexing and shocking.
How can we properly mourn or reflect on this senseless death without putting a name and face on the murder victim?
