PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Phoenix police continue their search for two men wanted in connection with the home invasion death of a father and son earlier this month.

The son, 21-year-old Parish Ocampo, was a graduate of the Aguila Youth Leadership Institute, a Valley organization that prepares Hispanic youth for getting into and graduating from college.

Aguila's annual awards luncheon was held Friday. CBS 5 News' Catherine Anaya was one of the recipients along with others, including Sen. Anna Tovar.

The event paid tribute to Ocampo, who volunteered at the Aguila office, and just days before his death, talked about setting up a scholarship fund to pay it forward to other students who would like to participate in the program.

The Parish's Promise Scholarship Fund has been set up to continue his efforts.
