March 08, 2019: – Carol Price sits for a portrait with memories of her son, Kendric Price, at her home in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, Mass., United States. Kendric Price, 32, was killed down the street from the house where he grew up and where his mother still lives. The apartment where he was shot to death was known as an unlicensed club or party spot.
Price replays their last dinner together in her mind. It was Friday night. Her son’s future seemed so clear – a sun rising high into the sky. She cooked him sautéed chicken with onions, green peppers, rice, broccoli, and cheese.
Hours later, she awoke to a phone call. Something had happened down the street.
When she arrived on the scene, she told a detective what her boy had been wearing. The detective said, “I’m not gonna tell you for a fact that that’s your son,” Price recalled, but she knew.
She returned home and thought; “Maybe what I’m feeling isn’t real. Maybe they are going to call and say it’s all a mistake, it’s not Kendric after all, Kendric is alive and you are whole.” But they called, and it was him.
