In mid-December, I wrote about the murder of a convenience store clerk in “Drug Dealing: Not a Victimless Crime.” In that piece, you saw the rapid response of a makeshift shrine, with many prayer candles burning. Now, that temporary shrine is replaced with a permanent cross, lit by two prayer candles at all times.
The cross confirms the sparse details given in a follow-up KTAR news story, shortly after the murderous attack, or robbery attempt:
Jose Alcarez-Hernandez, 54, died in the shooting that police said may have been the result of a robbery gone bad.
