Georgia Teen, Bobby Tillman, Punched to Death on a Whim


A Georgia teenager was stomped, kicked and punched to death at a weekend house party after police say he walked by a group who decided to pounce on the next person who passed by. Four have been charged with murder.

A fight broke out between two females at a party near the intersection of Independence Drive and Freedom Lane. One of the females hit a male, who said he wouldn’t hit a girl but would hit the next male that walked by. The next male that walked by was Bobby Tillman who was 5′ 6″ 125 pounds. Beaten and stomped, Tillman died of blunt force trauma to the head and chest.


Four black males faced a Douglas County Court in Georgia Monday. Horace Damon Coleman, 19, Emanuel Benjamin Boykins, 18, Quantez Devonta Mallory, 18, and Tracen Franklin, 19 are all accused of beating Bobby Tillman to death at a house party in Atlanta early Sunday. No bail, no bond for the four suspects facing one felony murder count each.
