PHOENIX -- Parish Ocampo, 21, was known for being on time to work.

"I actually called him when he didn't show up for work Friday morning," said Sergio, Parish's boss at a local cleaning company. "I was a bit concerned."

His co-workers feared something was wrong -- and it was. Police say that Friday morning, two men broke into the Ocampo family home. They shot and killed Parish and his father, 46-year-old Ulises.

Ulises' wife and their other son, 18-years-old, were at home at the time.

"Their family's just torn apart for the rest of their lives. They're going to have to live with this," Sergio said. "Nothing's going to bring them back."

He called Ulises a hard worker and a beloved soccer coach.

Parish had dreams of returning to school and working in international business. In the meantime, he volunteered with a Phoenix youth leadership group. His mentors call this a great loss.

"He wanted to help others. That was just Parish," said Don Jensen, who mentored Parish at the AGUILA Youth Leadership Institute.

He said Parish had a dedication to service that stemmed from his father, both now taken away by two suspects still on the loose.

"We just ask the community if you know anything please please please contact authorities," said Jensen.

The suspects are described as two men, both around six feet tall and 200 pounds. If you know any information related to this case, please call Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6151 or call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (948-6377), 1-800-343-TIPS (8477) or 480-TESTIGO (837-8446).
