yeah it certainly was, then to top it off ,his younger brother was murdered a few years later. he attended community college here in my town. ....
Yesterday, 4 1/2 years after his brother died a cocaine-induced death, Jay Bias, 20, was shot and killed in the parking lot at Prince George's Plaza following an argument at a jewelry store in the mall. Last night, Jerry Samuel Taylor, 24, surrendered at the Oxon Hill police station, was charged with first-degree murder and was being held without bond.
And the mourning started all over again.
"First Len, now Jay. This is a bad dream," said Clinton Venable, one of Jay Bias's best friends who played basketball alongside him at Northwestern High School and Allegany Commnunity College in Cumberland, Md.,
and is now a senior playing at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. "I sure didn't want to hear anything like this."
i also found this nugget.....
Bias was rated by some draft publications as the most complete forward ever to come out of college. Bias was compared by some with Michael Jordan, even though Jordan himself was only in his second professional season at the time Bias was drafted.
