GREENSBORO, N.C. (WFMY) - "We'd go fishing and we caught 20 fish, we'd clean them, keep four. And he'd always insist on taking the rest down to the convent to give the nuns a fish dinner."
This is how Jay Brooks, of Greensboro, wants to remember his father; a kind and compassionate man. Not the way he was found.
"He was very undignified," Brooks explains. "Cramming him into a suitcase."
Investigators say Jay's father Robert Brooks, a World War II Veteran, died of natural causes in New York in January. His remains found stuffed in a suitcase 2 months later on a farm in Arkansas. Investigators are still trying to figure out why his body was taken there. At this point, 4 people have been arrested in the case.
"I was in denial that it couldn't possibly be him."
