Family pleas for help to solve motorcyclist's murder

Orlando Police need your help in solving a homicide of a motorcyclist driving on S.R. 408 last Thursday. His family is reaching out for any information possible.

Sheneika Joseph looks for answers, after police say her brother, Nate Joseph, was killed.

Nate was riding his motorcycle last Thursday on S.R. 408 by I-4. It was around 11 p.m. when investigators say he died.

Friends gathered for a vigil to remember Nate, who was the president of a motorcycle club called Street Monsters.

"We're trying to celebrate his life because he was a delightful person," said Aaron Barnes, Nate's friend. "Nate was the guy that inspired everybody with disabilities and handicaps. He lost his leg three years ago on his bike."

Sheneika says Nate was on his way to Jacksonville, when he lost his life.

"He always said if he were to die, he wanted to die on his bike," she said. "But I don't think Thursday night was the night he expected to die."

Nate has a 10-year-old son and a baby on the way. Waynesha Hemmings is his girlfriend.

"It hurts me to know, a week before she was due, that he can't be there for her," Sheneika said. That's all he talked about."

As their hearts ache, they hope to find the person who killed Nate.

Sheneika said, "I just want whoever did this to be brought to justice. My brother didn't deserve to die like this."

Anyone with information is asked to call the Orlando Police Department.
