It is real sad to hear of this violent tragedy that happened in such a special preserved place like the Northcoast's dunes. Mr James sounds like he tried to make the best out of a tough situation and these young people arrested for his murder went after the wrong men. The homeless have only been growing in numbers the past couple of decades. Some with addictions, some with criminal tendencies, others who have no desire to commit crimes but just making the best of their current situations. James James doesn't sound like a thief to me, just a man and a father from a broken family. May God look after his soul. Rest in peace.
