|Longtime friend: Charles Williams and former roommate Greg Berry!|
Family members of a slain Houston man say funeral services will be held in his hometown of Dallas this Friday.
It was New Years Day when 24 year old Daveon Collier was found brutally murdered in his Houston apartment.
Close friends and a former roommate tell the Insite Collier moved into the apartment only a month ago in Coventry Park. Collier was scheduled to attend a party with friends on New Years Eve but he was a no-show.
Those close to the nightclub promoter said when they last spoke with him he was entertaining two guests at his apartment.
He’d met at least one of them the night before at a Houston area nightspot.
Collier’s current roommate discovered his body in the apartment on January 1st.
The Harris County Medical Examiner says he was the victim of multiple stab wounds.
Charles Williams, who also lives in the same complex, says he’s known Collier for the last eight years.
Williams says, “he (Collier) was always the center of attention and one minute he’s here, then the next he’s gone.”
Houston detectives say they’re tracking down as many leads as possible.
However, one detective tells the Insite it’s been a major problem getting people in the apartment complex who have seen something to talk with investigators.
No suspect or suspects have been identified as of yet.
Now, back to those funeral services for Daveon.
The wake is being held at 8 pm Friday night at Golden Gate Funeral Home in Dallas…Funeral services are Saturday morning at New Morning Star Baptist Church also in Dallas.
It’s located at 1932 Dennison Street!
