Troy did not deserve to die the way he did. No living person has the right to take a life. my brother Clifford said, Troy did not have the resources to be a drug dealer. He barely had a place to stay. But, because he was not a big money earner, does that mean he had no right to be here?

I thank you Corrine. Your words are truly appreciated. It means so much for your kind words to come from someone that is not a blood relitive and not black. Someone who knew Troy for the kind person he was. Love you.
I truely mean what i said and Troy has been in my thoughts every moment since his death and im just trying to be here for mike and for all you guys to support you all. this just saddens me so much. even though i am white i feel that nothing is being done because they are making troy out to be just some black guy who didnt matter. well he does matter and something needs to be done. i love you all too!

I am most pleased to see all the family stepping in to DEMAND THAT JUSTICE BE SERVED. I too feel this is mandatory. I will not waste my time responding to any of the negative comments. I am about the bottom line: Will Justice be served voluntarily, or do we need to make some phone calls to prominent individuals who will have no problem lending their support?? It is not a going to be a problem for us. We only want what is fair and that is to see that this crime is punishable to the fullest of the law. Evidence will always tell the story, and anyone in their right mind will have to admit that the trauma Troy experienced was no fist fight, but a brutal beating with a bat that no human should have had to go through. No one is God here, but God himself will prevail in this situation. "Vengence is mind sayeth the Lord." So, one way or another, the truth will come out, and the criminal will be dealt with.

There were plenty of people, a "group" watching the football game at the murder location. Ask one of them who is responsible for the death.
