Duffy's employees remember coworker Alex Johnson, police continue to investigate homicide

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. - As police continue to investigate the homicide of a West Palm Beach man. Alex Johnson's coworkers reflected on his life at work Wednesday.

Johnson worked at the Duffy's on PGA Boulevard for at least at year.  His coworkers said it's hard knowing Johnson will never walk through the door again. They say Johnson was like family.

"He was supposed to open with us this morning and to just come into work today and not be able to see him or have him walk through the door again, dancing around like he normally does, words can't describe," said Linda Papszycki.

Papszycki worked with Johnson for a year. His body was discovered last night at his apartment on The Pointe Dr. off Village Blvd. His coworkers last saw him Sunday.

"It wasn't like him not to show up for work or not to call and say he was gonna be late, so then everybody starting worrying," she said.

Today they're remembering his positive attitude.

"He was always the life of the party. No matter what mode you were in. He always made you smile and laugh," said Papszycki.  "We're definitely like a big family here, you know everyone is definitely feeling it."

Linda hopes police finds Johnson's killer.

"Something like this just wouldn't happen to him, so I'm hoping that they find out what happened inside that apartment," she said.

Johnson's coworkers are planning to meet at the restaurant later tonight to hold a vigil. They'll proceed to Johnson's apartment  afterwards to light candles.
