The Winnipeg parents whose teenage son was killed in a home invasion are crying for justice.
Imelda and her husband Jaime Adao are still trying to understand why their 17-year-old son Jaime Adao Jr., whom they affectionately called Jimboy or Jimmy, had to die in such a horrific manner.
The attack happened in their family home on McGee Street around 9 p.m. Sunday. The teen was able to call 911, but by the time police arrived, he had already been attacked with a weapon by the intruder, and later died. Police shot the intruder several times and is now in the hospital in critical condition.
The 204-Neighbourhood Watch, a volunteer group made up of members from the Winnipeg’s Filipino community met at Maples Collegiate Friday night as police chief Smyth tried to reassure citizens that Winnipeg is in fact a safe place, calling the attack completely random
