Sebastian Echeverry, production manager of the Signal Tribune newspaper, talks to Cory Bilicko, staff writer, about how he kept his emotions neutral while writing about Joseluis Cruz, Jr.

Cruz was shot and killed in Long Beach in 2012. His family donated his organs to four individuals, who now live on. Cruz’s memory will be honored in January during the 130th Rose Parade in Pasadena with a float.
