    I knew Bryan. His brothers and sister in-laws are all very good friends of mine. They have a suspect, Matthew Vantine, but he has not yet been charged with Bryan's murder.

    Bryan Hogan’s family remembers him as a compassionate man.

    That compassion led him to take a homeless couple into his apartment in the Interfaith Heights complex in January 2015 when it got cold outside.

    It also led to his death.

    Hogan, a 53-year-old Navy veteran known to some as “Hippie,” was fatally stabbed to death by the man he tried to help during an alcohol-fueled confrontation on Jan. 26, 2015, according to prosecutors.

    On Monday, his killer, 28-year-old Matthew Vantine, was sentenced to 20 to 40 years in prison for killing a man family members said performed part-time work for the Department of Veterans Affairs and was loved by many.

    Last month, Vantine pleaded guilty to third-degree murder as well as robbery, aggravated assault and resisting arrest in the Turkey Hill case. Terms of a plea deal called for Vantine to receive a mandatory 20 to 40 years in prison for third-degree murder, with sentences for the other crimes to run concurrently.

    “He helped people out and for this to happen to him is a shame. There was a lot more good in his life that he had to offer people,” Hogan’s brother, Kerin Hogan, said. “It’s a sad event. It shouldn’t have occurred. It was a senseless murder and hopefully he serves most of his 40 years.”
