Family member of brother, sister killed in double homicide speaks out


Only days after losing two of their loved ones, one family member is speaking out against gun violence.

Dexter Cobb was "cool," and Porscha Cobb loved her sons "to death," according to their great-aunt Gloria Griffin.

"It's like double pain, double hard. It's not easy," Griffin told ABC15.

The two were found dead in their home by Horry County Police on Thursday. A coroner later ruled their deaths homicides from gunshot wounds.

Griffin said the family is part of a tight knit community, describing kids moving from house to house as if each was their home.

She says the community needs to become even closer to prevent future losses.

"The children have got to stop killing each other," she said. "But it's going to take us to come together as a village, as the older people used to say, and help each other raise each other's children."

Above all, the family wants anyone with information to come forward to police, so they can move on.

"Don't be afraid because you're not just helping the police, you're helping this family to heal. Because the healing process is going to really begin when they are caught," Griffin said.
