Adrien Wallace, the boy's 41-year-old uncle, has confessed to killing Nicolas Juarez, a 16-year-old St. Francis High School student, along with 71-year-old Saundra Wallace -- the teen's grandmother and suspect's mother -- with a hunting rifle on the evening of June 4.

I helped to coach Nick on the MVLA Legends soccer team. Nick was humble, kind, funny and hard working. He always strived to do his best and was always ready to help his fellow teammates and coaches. This is such a tragic and senseless crime and will have a devistating impact on the Legends soccer team and all who knew Nick. Our community has suffered a terrible loss on this day.
