Not a day went by that he wasn’t smiling or trying to make someone around him happy. Trae, as he was called, was a 15-year-old student at Jean Ribault High School in Jacksonville, Florida.

  Jermain Crumpton August 16, 2021 | By Ketan Narotam This story is part of a collaborative project between Project: Cold Case and a University of North Florida Journalism class. Jermain Crumpton was the Grinch when it came to Christmas. His sister Sabrina Stubbins said she remembers Jermain always being stingy on Christmas – he rarely bought gifts for anyone. However, Jermain changed from the Grinch into Santa Claus on Christmas 2017 when he randomly decided to buy everyone presents. “I was shocked when my mom told me Jermain got me a gift card for Christmas,” said Sabrina. “I immediately called him up to thank him and say I love you.” It would be the last time Sabrina said “I love you” to her brother. Jermain died in the nightly hours of January 3, 2018. He had been robbed and shot multiple times the night before in his room at a Super 8 Motel in Clearwater, Florida, where he had been living. Jermain’s homicide has never been solved. He was 45 years old. Jermain grew up in the Clearw
