JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Dozens of friends and family of Glenn Hucks packed Christ Church of Peace in Riverside Saturday to remember his life, but also to demand justice.

Many, including Hucks' cousin Misty Evans, wore shirts with Hucks' picture that read "Justice for Glenn."

"I believe you go through closure in processes. We've had one closure and now we have to get justice and I think that will be the next closure," said Evans.

Hucks, 20, was found over a week ago in Camden County days after he was last seen leaving a popular Riverside bar with a man who is now the suspect in his murder.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office arrested 34-year-old Jeremy Pittman and charged him with the killing.

Investigators say the two argued but have not revealed what the fight was about or how Hucks died.

Evans said Hucks loved Jacksonville, he had moved to the area two months ago from Georgia.

Action News arrived 90 minutes before the service wanting to interview the family. As Senior Pastor my responsibility was to protect this family and grant them the privacy deserved as well as be certain the proper setting was maintained for the service. Finally, a cousin did give a brief interview refusing to answer questions about the case. The reporter was insistent they had to make the 6PM news. The service was not scheduled until 6:30PM and did not begin until 6:50PM. Had your reporters been more respectful, more professional, and remained for the entire service as did one of the other news channels, you would have seen more than 80 people, many who never knew him, gathered to honor the memory of Glenn Hucks and support his family. You "missed te boat" on your reporting with inaccurate information.
