Angelo LaRocca was murdered on 6/28/2011. He was shot and killed after a drug deal went wrong. His mother, Simone LaRocca Jordon, said that she makes no excuses for him that day and doesn’t agree for his choices that day, but she contends he was set up.
“He thought he was buying Xanax,” Jordon said she would later learn.
Jordon called her son “very handsome, a charmer…compassionate.” She said he loved animals and children – He also was a comedian that had a smile which was contagious.
Angelo was 19 years old.
UPDATE 5/19/2013: From Simone LaRocca Jordan:
It is confirmed it was not a drug deal gone bad, but a robbery, murder. They lured my son there by telling him they were going to sell him xanax, but they didnt even have any pills on them. These are now the facts.
