Today, early morning, the agents reveled that was it was a CRIME. He was raped, had many stab wounds, and was still alive when buried. He was 17 years old, he could not defend himself. A crime is bad, but what Jose suffered was horrible.
Jose was a peaceful young man and he was fun with his friends. Some thought he was 'antisocial' but he was shy. During the weekends Jose worked at the Flea Market selling ice cream to help his family.
We have to afront this situation and pray for his soul, and for the one or those who committed this crime.
My intention is to help his parents with the costs of the funeral. They are people that came to this country for a better way of life and they have been working hard but they can not afford all the expenses. A funeral is expensive and especially when it takes you by surpreise. No donation is too small, a penny, a dollar, will be a great help to them. We do not know what happen, but this can happen to your brothers, sisters, or any member of your family. Please, help us. God bless you and thanks for reading this.
My heart breaks for your family. What you've done here for the family to help raise funds for a proper burial is good. Your family should be so proud of you. Your cousin Jose sounds like he was a wonderful kid with a bright future. He and your family will be in our prayers.

This is so sad and trajic...my heart goes out to the family. We need to raise awareness in his honor to what is really happening at Job Corp. centers nationwide. My son was just sent home from Frenchburg Kentucky Job Corp. He was not physically violent but had some other issues. He was assaulted well over 10 times while there. He recieved stitches in his mouth ,had cleaning product poured in his face and was pulled from his bunk and beaten. Job Corp is a unregulated prison , i sent my son thinking i was doing the right thing. I am glad he is home safe. Please raise awareness about Job Corp. they sell you and your child a dream and it becomes a nightmare. Do not let this young mans death be forgotten . Make our goverment more accountable of the programs they fund and what is really happening at Job Corp. May he rest in peace and please do not let us forget his name.
This is one of the sadest stories I have ever read.I myself went to Montgomery Job Corps,that was back in the nintes though.I would have to say that the job corp that the young man attended need to take responsibility for what happened.Why is security working if some crazy kids were able to get away with this.Job corp is the blame I feel illegal things were going on when I went and out of control teens were there.No one shouldnt have to lose their life in order for you to strengthen your security.It should have already been like that.I feel so sad for this young man and I hope that those teens that did this never see the light of day.
Mis condolencias para la familia de Jose Amaya. Lo siento mucho la perdida de su hijo, nieto, hermano, sobrino, o amigo. Le pido a Dios que lo tenga y lo proteja en su Gloria. Que la muerte no vaya ser en vano. El es un anjel de Dios y recordado por los dias felizes que compartio con ustedes.
I am so sorry for your loss. My daughter too goes to this job corp and used to walk to that same store by herself, she promises to only walk with groups now. She knew your son. I am so sorry my heart aches for you.
