Update:Darius Cooke Mourns The Loss of Partner Keith Truesdale
The family of the late Keith Jamar Truesdale who was gunned down during a robbery at Popeye's Chicken on January, 22 in Woodbridge, VA can now begin to heal. Three men have been arrested for the botched robbery that left Truesdale dead after he failed to open the safe and shots were fired. The robbers left without any money.
Truesdale left behind a devoted partner, Darius Cooke of two years. Shortly before his death the couple had exchanged rings during a commitment ceremony and were settling into a new home.
Cooke saw Truesdale for the last time that day as he stopped by the restaurant to collect some of the paperwork needed for an upcoming move. After running some errands in the neighborhood, fate allowed Cooke to be in an adjacent bank parking lot as Truesdale took a break. He walked over and surprised Cooke.
''Damn, you're still here?'' Truesdale teased. ''You got everything you need?''
That was followed by a casual goodbye and Cooke's reply: ''I'll see you at home then.'' It would be the last words they would exchange, the last time they would see each other.
