Slain Gainesville Man Remembered
The relatives of a murdered Gainesville man said he was the epitome of a family man who was always looking to help. The 83 year old Gainesville never made it home from a trip to see an ailing sibling. Police said 17-year old Corey Harrington confessed to carjacking Charles Soukup and then killing him. Family members said they can't even begin to describe the loss. Despite filled with anger, Soukup's son Chuck smiled while remembering his father. He recalled how his dad would sneak him into his customs agent job so that he could fish.
"And whenever the supervisor would come by, I would hide under the desk while he talked to the supervisor. That is the kinda of man that he was," said Chuck Soukup.
Charles Soukup leaves behind six children, nine grandchildren, one great grandchild with another on the way, and a wife of almost 60 years. To see more on this report, watch the video to your right.
