Friends and family celebrate what would have been Courtney McGriff's 30th birthday

BOYNTON BEACH - The Delray Beach community is celebrating a life cut too short. Courtney McGriff would have turned 30 today.

A Delray Beach police spokeswoman says officers found McGriff shot to death in his home Tuesday.

Today, friends and family members celebrated his birthday by releasing balloons into the air and holding a candlelight memorial service. They met at Johnson Memorial Chapel in Boynton Beach, where McGriff worked.

He owned a funeral escort and procession business and frequently worked with the Johnson Memorial Chapel.

One friend and coworker says they worked together Saturday. He remembers McGriff for his jovial attitude and as a guy who could see the positive side of anything.

The police spokesperson says detectives have not arrested anyone, or released details about a possible suspect.

The community continues to look for answers and hopes memorial services like tonight's keep McGriff's death in the spotlight.

"We're trusting in God, hoping justice comes, hoping to find out who's behind the whole situation to give the family peace," explains Karey Isom, Sr, a coworker.

If you have any information about the case, Det. Oscar Leon at 561-243-7845 or report information anonymously to Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County at 1-800-458-TIPS (8477). You can be eligible for up $1,000 for a tip which leads to an arrest.
