The hurt cut deep. After all it was his nephew.
Emmanuel* was on the wrong road. Though raised in a Christian family, he decided to take a detour down a dead end road. Drugs cost him a place to stay when his parents discovered he was using at home. His uncle seemed his only hope, but he quickly messed that up too. While they were away, he stole a priceless family heirloom and a gun and hocked them both for drug money. Uncle Jamie* discovered the missing shotgun which started a search to see if other items were missing. And they were.
