He had a lot of potential, his former ESL teacher told the student publication. She called him brilliant and funny. “Students and teachers were always happier when he was in their class,” wrote a math teacher at Westwood High School, where he’d graduated from months earlier.

Luis Alberto Rodriguez Tamayo, 18, of North Austin, Texas, was shot in the back of the head on Sept. 23, 2018. His family raised $12,000 to take his body to Cuba, where they live.
