The parents of a man killed by a State College police officer have posted details of the mental health issues he faced.
Osaze Osagie’s family writes that he had to withdraw from Penn State due to mental health challenges. They say he was diagnosed with autism and wrestled with mental health issues over the last 10 years.
In the website, they also detail his connection to God and his contributions to the community. There is a collection of family photos as well.
His funeral is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday at the State College Alliance Church.
Burial is to follow at the Pine Hall Cemetery in State College. The family asks that instead of flowers, supporters consider making a donation that is being set up as a scholarship in Osaze’s name. Click here for the web site.
