Services held for Bridgeport man allegedly killed by best friend

Dozens of friends and family members turned out to Morton's Mortuary in Bridgeport today to say their final goodbyes to 24-year-old Travis Brown.

Police say Brown was stabbed to death last Thursday by his best friend, Bjorn William, 22. Family members say Brown was killed after an argument escalated.

Brown's family says today is especially painful because they are coping with two losses.

Just this week, family members say Brown's aunt, Christine Jeffreys, 46, was found dead in her home on Madison Avenue.

Police have not yet made any arrests in the second homicide.

Family members do not believe the two incidents are connected.
