By September 2010, Mr. Reeves had moved north to the Bronx to live with his mother. He and his mother moved to the Albany Houses in Brooklyn in 2011, but two years later, Mr. Reeves was arrested on suspicion of burglarizing a factory in Greenpoint. During the past year, Mr. Reeves began to use crack openly, stopped washing and became threatening and erratic, acquaintances and neighbors said. Last year, according to neighbors, his mother sent him back to Jamaica in hopes that he would find peace. Ms. Reeves told her friends that her son had been beaten within an inch of his life over drugs, leaving him with missing teeth and a newly misshapen face.
