It’s very frustrating,” Norfolk homicide detective Darryl Jarvis told NewsChannel 3. Joe, a journalism student at Hampton University, was at a party on 35th and Killam in Norfolk — minutes from ODU. The party spilled out onto the street.

There was a fight, and Joe was killed. Police say that’s all they know. “Streets talk. Everybody knows what goes on out there.

We just need that person to say ‘I know what goes on out here and I`m tired of it, and I want to do something about it.'” The Bose family has tried doing something about it too. They’ve offered a $10,000 reward, passed out fliers, and pleaded with NewsChannel 3 viewers to take action for their son. “I am just begging people to pick up the phone as a mother who’s heart is shattered.

Please pick up the phone and call the crime line,” Joe’s mom, Kimberly Bose told NewsChannel 3.
