Eric Laufer was just 25 years old when he was killed riding his motorcycle home from San Antonio.
The SUV's license plate was lodged in Eric's motorcycle. This clue helped police identify Jose Luis Dorantes as the SUV's driver.
Country singer, songwriter and actor Waylon Payne stepped up when he heard AMW was going to profile Eric Laufer's story.
Eric Laufer met Jeff Herring at Berklee School of Music in Boston. Both got together with upright bass player Shane Kiel and formed the band The Two Timin' Three.
The Two Timin' Three added a drummer, Patrick Morrow, and became The Two Timin' Four.
Eric's family is doing everything they can to keep Eric's memory alive and to find his killer. They have started the Eric M. Laufer Music Scholarship to help out young aspiring musicians.
