A message from the Zanco Family:
We would like to thank the Waltham Police Dept. for their hard work and diligence in apprehending those responsible for Tyler's death. We have faith that justice will be served by the judicial system, allowing us to begin the grieving process for the loss of our beloved son Tyler.
We would also like to thank those who have donated and offered their support to us in this terrible time. We are heartened with the fact that so many people expressed how they were touched by Tyler in his time with us. We know that nothing will bring Tyler back but we would like everyone to know that the outpouring of support has helped tremendously.
We ask that our privacy be respected as we mourn our loss and lay him to rest at the end of the week. Thank you in advance for honoring this request.

I am very sick and outraged by this news and I really would like to know why any person would take this young mans life and it angers me to know that he will no longer have the chance to experience the different stages of life, a chance to fulfill his dreams, and time to help as many people as he could. I honestly cannot think of any reason or explanation that would justify the actions of the perpetrators. This attack is very tragic, cruel, and disgusting and my thoughts and pryers are with the Zanco family and I really hope justice is served. This senseless violence must be put to an end and I hope very soon.

We will all miss Tyler terribly. But when we get over the shock, when we can stop crying, when we realize he would want us to continue his legacy of kindness and acceptance we will show the world that his life was not in vain. We will all try a little harder to be like him and that my friends will make him smile at us from above. Loved you kid. God bless the Zanco family.

Damn.. If I had money to donate I for sure would. I hung out with Tyler a few handful of times, but he definitely made an impression on me and everyone around him. He was always crackin a joke to get people to laugh. He always made sure to go out of his way to lighten people up and make them smile. The world needs many more people like him. Hes good people. I will share this link on every social media platform I use and online groups and forums I am involved in. This was a senseless act of violence, and whoever did this will be caught and put to justice. Rest easy my dude, and keep smiling.
