Brooklyn Park Family Speaks About Slain Son, ‘None of Us Parents Should Bury our Kids’
Fred and Alvera Voss remember their son Syoka Siko, 17, who died after being shot at an apartment last Friday. See story here.
“I would love to know who did this to my son because nobody should deserve to die like that,” said Alvera Voss. “Syoka will forever remain like my little boy.”
The parents have a flood of memories to remember Siko.
“For me, he’ll always be in my heart. Even though I can’t talk to him. I’ve got a whole bunch of memories to cherish,” said Fred.
They remember Siko as a basketball star and honor roll student. Parents say he recently left Park Center high school.
“He kept saying ‘I don’t feel safe here, you know.’ I said why? He wouldn’t open up,” remembered Alvera.
The parents remember Siko as a kid who liked to hang out at their lake cabin sailing, fishing and tubing. They say if a computer broke down, he could fix it.
Now his parents want to find out who shot their son.
“We want justice, and we want the person who did it to own up to it,” said Fred.
Alvera says knowing that would give them peace. They have set up a GoFundMe account to help pay for funeral expenses.
