Bobby Tillman Punched, Kicked, Stomped to Death At Party

Four Atlanta teenagers have been arrested after the group jumped and killed another teen at a party.

According to published reports, Bobby Tillman was walking down a street when he was jumped by four teens for “being the next person who walked by”.

Police state that the two of the four teen men were involved in an altercation with two females, when one of the men was punched by a girl. Rather than take out his anger on the female, police say that the man threatened the next male who walked by-that happened to be Tillman.

“It’s amazing,” Douglas County Maj. Tommy Wheeler told reporters. “He had nothing to do with anything, they just decided he’s the one. And they killed him.”

District Attorney David McDade said the four teens will be charged for the crime of murder in the death of the 18-year-old and Tillman’s mother said she wants justice for her son.

“He was my only son. He was my best friend. He was an angel here on earth and I was blessed to be his mother,” Monique Rezaida said.

My son did not die in vain. My son is a silent hero. He touched so many lives I didn’t know about. Bobby was a ray of sunshine through every dark cloud.”

Douglas County Coroner Randy Daniel gave the official cause of death November 8, stating Tillman died of blunt force trauma to the head and chest.

Court records show that Quantez Devonta Mallory, Horace Damon Coleman, Emanuel Benjamin Boykins and Tracen Lamar Franklin are the four men charged with Tillman’s murder.
