Bronx, New York
Best older brother he could be
He had a good heart, his sister Mikayla Glover says. He’d help elderly neighbors with their groceries. When his pregnant mother entered a family shelter, he could have found another home. Instead, he stayed there, too, so he could help her.
He’d always been the youngest sibling and the only man of the house. Then his baby brother Trust was born. He was ecstatic.
Months later, on February 28, 2018, Akim Glover, 18, of Bronx, New York, was murdered. His baby brother still hugs and kisses his picture, asking for when “Pop” will come home.
