‘Somebody knows something’: Jacksonville family seeks answers in shooting death of 20-year-old

Jacquez Anlage found shot to death in October

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A Jacksonville family is hoping someone will speak up so they can get justice for their son who was found shot to death last year inside an Arlington apartment.

Family members say Jacquez Anlage, 20, was shot and killed in October. Nearly six months later, his parents say they feel like they’re in the dark and they’re not getting any answers.

“Please, anybody that knows anything. Somebody saw something. Somebody knows something. Please,” said his mother, Crystal Anlage.

When News4Jax spoke with Crystal Anlage on Monday, she said the last 170 days since her son was killed have been “every parent’s worst nightmare.”

“The moment that we found out that he was gone, I felt like my life ended,” she said. “He was our only child.”

Jacquez Anlage’s parents say they adopted him when he was 16 years old. They only got to be his parents for four years.

“He was sweet, he was kind, he was funny,” Crystal Anlage said. “Whoever is responsible for this, took away our future. We’ll never have grandchildren. I’ll never get to see my son graduate from college.”

No suspects have been named and no arrests have been made.
