Please sign this petition so that the state can "CHARGE" Duke Laguerre with the crime of murder

On October 6th, 2013, my friend Jandei Cherry, an aspiring musician and young father was murdered while walking down the street, trying to get home. After an altercation with a friend on Hollywood Beach left him without clothes, a cell phone, or any money, he was forced to walk home naked between the hours of 5-6 am. An unknown driver, which was later determined to be Duke Laguerre, passed him on the road. Instead of continuing to head in the direction he was originally going, he turned his vehicle around, approached Mr. Cherry and ended his life with a gunshot wound to the chest. The details of why he shot him are still unknown, but what we do know is that Mr. Cherry was naked, and therefore had no weapon and was not a threat to Duke Laguerre's life. At this time there have been no charges brought forth to prosecute Mr. Laguerre and he has taken the innocent life of a 22 year old father and son. Please sign this petition so we can essentially force the state of Florida to prosecute Duke Laguerre on the charges of murder. No one's life should be taken so callously and coldly without the judicial system taking a stand and investigating a murder to the fullest extent of the law. Please help us give his family justice or at least a fair trial in this matter.
