Is this Phil Sr. or Jr? My son seems to think it was "PJ", Phil Jr. (?) Either way, this is horrible!

** Yes, just found out it was indeed Philip Jr. (25 yrs. young.) I remember him when he was about 6 or 7 yrs. old. Funny and smart. Sweet and kind and such an early age.

Such a tragedy for his family and his GF.
