Murder Victim's Brother Turns Pain into Passion by Helping Others
Published October 6th, 2012
GAINESVILLE - Sixteen-year-old Sebastian Ochsenius was up late playing video games inside his parent's home when he was shot to death by a still- unidentified intruder.
Two years later, Sebastian's brother, Boris, is using his experience to help others, including the Aguilar family.
Three months after losing his little brother, Boris said he decided to channel the pain by joining Crime Stoppers.
Two years later, Ochsenius is now the Chairman of Alachua County Crime Stoppers.
Boris says his experience with tragedy helps him relate to what the Aguilar family is going through.
Crime Stoppers has offered a $2,000 reward for any information that will help investigators find Christian.
While Boris says it doesn't heal the pain, it does help him cope with the loss.
Boris says he still has hope that his brother's killer will be found one day.
If you have any tips that can help solve this case, or any others, call Crime Stoppers at (352) 372-STOP.
