Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Last week, a West Palm Beach jewelery store owner was murdered in his own store. His killers are still on the loose.

John Lauseng will be be laid to rest Monday at the Garden's Memorial Park in Boca Raton. The service begins at 1 p.m.  Afterward, there will be a reception and celebration of Lauseng's life at the Eagle Motorcycle Company on South Military Trail in West Palm Beach.

Late last week, Lauseng's widow sat down with us and told us how the reality of what happened is sinking in. "He's my soul mate, and I miss him. I really miss him a lot. Our little car rides at 10 at night to go to Dunkin Donuts -- just the little things. The family trips, the bike rides together, doing everything. We did everything together."

Three cameras captured what happened. The first camera shows store owner John Lauseng arriving to open up the store Monday, and, within a few seconds, a dark green van pulls into view and gunman jumps out with a handgun, pointing it at Lauseng who's standing outside the front door.

A second camera shows the gunman coming up behind Lauseng, pointing a gun at him and, apparently, telling him to open the door.

The third camera, shows the gunman coming into view, and, at one point, briefly lifts his mask, giving us a look at his face.
