Patrick Woods said his brother was a “comedian at heart” who loved cracking jokes, playing video games and fishing.

“He put his heart into everything he did,” Patrick Woods said.

Patrick Woods said he doesn’t understand why someone would have wanted to hurt his brother.

“[He] was a lovely individual,” Patrick Woods said. “He wasn’t getting into any trouble.”

Since Kendrick’s death last week, there have been no major developments in the case. As of Saturday afternoon, no one was in custody as Area Central detectives continued to investigate.
