Jacksonville-area fundraiser tonight for slain Atlanta native’s family

Friends of Glenn Hucks, the gay Atlanta native whose body was found in Camden County on Jan. 30 , are hosting a fundraiser for his family tonight, Feb. 13, at Jacksonville-area gay bar Hamburger Mary’s. Hucks, 20, went missing on Jan. 18 after leaving Jacksonville gay bar Metro with Jeremy Christian Pittman. Pittman was later charged with Hucks’ murder.

The fundraiser is to help offset costs for funeral arrangements and travel as Hucks’ Atlanta-area family goes back and forth to Jacksonville for the upcoming trial. Pittman’s initial appearance is on Feb. 20.

Hucks grew up in Villa Rica and attended South Paulding High School and had moved to Jacksonville within the last six months. Police say Hucks and Pittman met at Metro, and then went to Pittman’s home. At some point an argument ensued and Hucks asked to go home. His body was found by hunters on Jan. 30 less than a mile from Pittman’s work.
