The City of Orlando has now confirmed he was one of the 50 partygoers who were shot dead by Islamic extremist Omar Mateen on Sunday morning. (the 9th name on the list)
Eddie, who worked as an accountant, ran into the bathroom to escape Mateen but he and a group were cornered. He asked Mina to call police as she arrived outside the Orlando gay nightclub in a desperate attempt to find her son.
Eddie then told her 'I'm gonna die' as Mateen discovered where he was hiding and took him and other hostages.
'Mommy I love you. In the club they shooting,' a text from Eddie Justice to his mother read.
'U ok,' she responded before her son wrote back 'trapped in bathroom.'
