An older brother of the New Jersey teen who allegedly gunned down his parents and sister on New Year’s Eve penned a touching tribute to his slain family members on social media, urging others “to give the ones you love an extra kiss or I love you.”
Steven Kologi Jr., who survived the carnage inside his family’s Jersey Shore home, told Instagram followers he had “the greatest parents I could ask for.”
“Never once was I without a hot meal or a roof over my head,” he wrote in a statement that was reposted by a Facebook user.
“They made sure Christmas came every year although they struggled financially. I cannot even describe the type of people they were so just believe me when I say how great they were.”
Steven Jr.’s autistic brother has been accused of using a semi-automatic rifle to kill his parents, Steven and Linda Kologi, his 18-year-old sister, Brittany, and 70-year-old Mary Schultz, a family friend, authorities said.
