Warm hugs and loving memories of Josiah Humphreys were exchanged at the corner of 18th and P streets in Midtown Monday night.

“He was loved by everybody who met him. He was a true man for others and he lived by that motto,” said friend Nicholas Tulleners.

Humphreys, a 2003 Jesuit High School graduate, was beaten to death by 3 strangers while walking home early Sunday morning.

At his vigil, friends hung his hat from the street light to remember him.

“He was known for his goofy cowboy hats and these weird hats, so it was only fitting we hang his hat one last time,” said Tulleners.
