 HOMESTEAD, FL
Hi every one, My name is Ana Morales, Jose Amaya was my cousin and he dissapered on June 28, 2015.  He studied at Homestead Job Corporation.   He asked permission at the school to go buy  some food, but he never returned.  At 6.00 pm his parents received a call from school and they reported to the police but the police could not do anything until after 72 hours.  His family didn't wait and they decided to look for him.    Days of desesperation and without rest, no answers and no help, nobody knew about him.  After two nights of looking, on Wednesday July 01, 2015 the family without the police, decided to go around the school and look for him (a very dark area).  His brothers noticed behind the school there was a burned area and they took a closer look.  There, they found two feet.   They contacted the police.   At midnight, the police arrived and the body was discovered and removed.  The body was unrecognizible and decomposed.  His brothers could not resist to see the body.  They were crazy with grief  hoping it was not Jose.  They did not tell his parents about this.  But on Thursday evening the police  informed the family that it was Jose's body, my cousin.   We are in disbelief, his mother is in shock.
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.

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.
