ELKHART — The son of one of the two women killed by a shooter at an Elkhart Martin's Super Market on Wednesday, Jan. 15, played in his university's basketball game Saturday afternoon.

Joe Godfread, son of Rachelle Godfread, is a student at IU South Bend, where he plays for the Titans' varsity basketball team.

Thursday night, Jan. 17, Joe Godfread told his coach, Scott Cooper, that he would like to play in Saturday's game against Robert Morris University, Ken Baierl, IUSB spokesperson, said.

"Coach Cooper and the entire IU South Bend family look forward to seeing Joe join the team for the game," Baierl said.

IUSB held a moment of silence in honor of Rachelle Godfread and in support of Joe Godfread prior to the game.

During the game, Joe Godfread scored nine points, made two rebounds and had three blocked shots. IUSB lost to Robert Morris 84-71.

 FILE - This Feb. 9, 2013 file surveillance photo provided by the FBI shows 73-year-old Walter Unbehaun, an ex-convict from Rock Hill., S.C., during a bank robbery in Niles, Ill. Unbehaun allegedly told investigators he intended to get caught so he could live his final years behind bars. On Thursday, April 17, 2014, Unbehaun is scheduled to be sentenced in Chicago. In 50 years, he has spent just six out from behind bars. His case highlights a wider societal dilemma about what to do with an increasingly elderly ex-cons, many of whom spent so much of their lives inside prison that they, like Unbehaun, can't cope with life on the outside.
