A Bears fan who traveled to watch the team play was murdered early Sunday in Jacksonville. Now, Bears tight end Kellen Davis is raising money for the victim’s family.
Per various media reports, 27-year-old Matthew Hinson slashed the throat of 42-year-old William “Chris” Pettry in cold blood at a Jacksonville Landing pub because Pettry had been talking to Hinson’s wife. According to ESPNChicago.com, Davis and his agent will conduct a Saturday fundraiser for Pettry’s wife and three children.
“My heart goes out to the Pettry family that lost their loved one over a senseless act,” Davis said. “I wanted to show my support when I heard about this, so I started a donation page and am participating in a fundraiser that my team helped put together.”
