I am friends with the family and when I first heard of the news the first thing that came to my mind was robbery. I knew that he had a lot of money and believe that he was set up too. The girlfriend needs to be questioned due to the fact that he was there to visit her. Where was the girlfriend when he was killed, how long was it before she reported him missing. My prayers are with you Rose, Frankie, Chevon, Ne'Ne' and Derrell and the rest of the Solomon,Stallworth and Phillip families. God Bless.

You might as well put a sign on your back saying "rob me" when if you brag how much money you have.

I'M CONFUSED, THE ARTICLE STATES THIS MAN WAS 20 AND HE INHERITED A BUNCH OF MONEY WHEN HIS MOTHER DIED 20 YEARS AGO. SO, WHAT, HE JUST GOT THE INHERANCE AND STARTED BRAGGING ABOUT IT? NORMALLY THESE MONIES ARE PUT IN TRUSTS UNTIL THE CHILD REACHES 18 OR 21 YEARS OF AGE. CAN'T IMAGINE HE JUST STARTED SHOWING OFF ABOUT IT IF HE GOT IT AT 18...

Actually, if a trust hasn't been set up prior to, then it is state law that a guardianship is set up on behalf of the minor child, who cannot touch the money, or even close the guardianship until they are 18 years old.

If he was 20 at the time he was murdered, then chances are, he was able to have the funds transferred into his own name.

Money is the root of all evil and so is drug.I know killing is wrong, but you never know what your children is doing out on the streets when parents aren't around. No matter what the situation was the bible declares thy shall not kill which is one of the ten commandments. I will give a sernario the investigation states that Alex Phillip died from a gunshot wound in the lower torso as he was running away. I feel if they were really trying to shoot to kill they would have shot him higher up towards the back closer to the chest area. I also think that it wasn't a plan to kill him but only to rob him. these days you can't carry a wallet or pocket book without somebody trying to rob them. Nevertheless this kid was braging about how much money he had. He set his own self up. If he had money he probably was trying to turn the money over to make more by doing illegal things.

I know the girlfriend of this guy and for folks to think that she had something to do with it is crazy. I know for a fact that she loved the guy with all of her heart. I also knew the ones who are accused of killing him. To be honest, I think that nobody deserves to be murdered and if you have to be jealous of what another person has, shit that is on your hatin ass but it don't give you the right to take someone else shit. Whoever killed him, they know what they did in their heart and in time they will suffer too
