JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- JSO announced on Friday that Jeremy Pittman, 34, is charged with murder in the death of Robert Glenn Hucks, 20.

Hunters found Hucks' body Thursday in a wooded area of Camden County.

Police said Pittman met Hucks at "The Metro," a bar in Riverside, January 17, and the two were seen leaving together.

Investigators believe the slaying happened the same night of Hucks' disappearance. JSO said the two men argued but did not reveal what the argument was about.

Police said Hucks' mother reported him missing, but JSO did not release the information to the public. 

The cause of death has not been released.

A member of Hucks' family told Action News Friday morning police were conducting an autopsy.

They also said Hucks lived in Jacksonville.

Glenn was a kind person, I met him when he needed a place to stay upon moving back to atlanta to be with his grandparents after a bad break up. His former friend also abused him, he sent me photos, I really dont care why or for all the rhetoric....my friend is gone and I am not the same person he made me.....I have become cynical and non-caring...a light in my sky was extinguished. Why doesn't matter...thats for the courts and jury, a loving person is gone and the world is a sadder place for his absence....rest with the angels Glenn my dear friend....I will always love you... :..(

Again ignorance rears it's ugly head again. Even in 2014 a vast amount of people think gay male means an extremely feminine like manner, expressed by males. And in the bedroom, only one-two type behaviors occur. This fairly LARGE 34 yr. old man felt something that ended in him killing this relatively light in weight,20yr.old. Makes little rational sense. But we are not dealing with sense here, but ignorance, prejudice, denial, self esteem/hatred, and what OTHERS think(void of cognitive brain functioning when related to reality).

Sorry but I am ill and emotionally stricken and cannot adequately express the rhetoric I desired to express below...but I hope and pray everyone who read it knew I meant it.

There are a lot of considerations, theories and opinions about this case but fact of the matter is A CHILD OF GOD WAS MURDERED...one of the basic laws God our creator, the creator of EVERYTHING THAT IS, He said THOU SHALT NOT KILL...created Glenn Hucks and God created Chris Pittman...I knew Glen...they call him Robert Glen in all the full media coverage this case has received. One does wonder "does anyone care"...no name calling intended nor needed. There are a lot of considerations to consider why things were handled the way they were...was it the family or for the family...was it the background and nature of Glenn's work history and social life activity...now don't get me wrong, but Glenn was a very sweet boy...I met him just before he turned 18 and a senior in high school right after his mother got out of prison...amazing woman...Glenn was rebellious because he was not "accepted"...seeming even by those who loved him...some say his family turned their back on him...Glen never told me this so why even consider it...but Glenn chose a point in time that he wanted nothing to do with any of us...I am gay...I advised Glenn to go into the military...instead he goes into gay twink porn...ad did his "sister", Devon. Who am I to point a finger at either one of them or the companies they both stripped for? We are all God's creatures...and not trying to be historically trite or "cute", but and GET ALONG!!

There are 2 theories that I can think of. For one thing, the murderer Pittman looks straight. This could either be A) a drug deal gone wrong, or B) a hate crime...Pittman might be secretly closeted, the two were seen leaving the bar together, and the murderer just snapped...taking his own internal homophobia out on Ryan. Now...which theory is correct?

Why does it have to be a gay thing? He was a missing PERSON. It's terrible and tragic, yes. But law enforcement didn't fail him any more than any other missing persons recently. So put the 'gay card' away.

Realchange- No one is saying that it is worse, and yes it would be just as big of a deal if it was a 20 year old woman. No one was a minor in this situation so your rant about sex with minors is irrelevant. There is also not a double standard, sex with a minor is illegal and frowned upon no matter who you are. People are upset because JSO did not make it known that he was missing.
