The Senseless Murder of Demond Joshua Jr.

On Saturday, August 1st, Kelvis Rodriguez-Tormes shot and killed Desmond Joshua Jr. in the parking lot of the Burger King where Joshua worked. Today’s case is one of those that disturbs me greatly. And because it is such a horrid case, I wanted to go deeper on the alleged perpetrator as well as the circumstances surrounding the case.Let’s start with Kelvis Rodriguez. Rodriguez is a 37 year old resident of Orlando. Rodriguez has had a few brushes with the law. He copped to a plea in a 2004 case where he was charged with possession of a controlled substance, as well as resisting arrest without violence.
