Boy Found Dead Covered In Blood on Sidewalk
Just yesterday a boy at the age of sixteen was found dead on a sidewalk by the alley downtown. Witnesses tell investigators that his name was Andy. He had been stabbed to death. The knife had entered just below his rib cage and had been drawn violently across his body, opening the wound. Due to the immense amount of blood found at the crime scene, investigators state that the boy bled to death. Witnesses state that the victim was a member of a gang who call themselves “The Royals”. This was later confirmed by the gang name imprinted on the back of the boy’s Jacket. The killer is believed to be a member of a rival gang who calls themselves “The Guardians”. No one is entirely sure what happened to the victim during his final hours but we have been able to get a few quick words from some witnesses. Laura, the victim’s girlfriend, confirmed his identity as Andy, she was his closest confident. Further details surrounding this gruesome incident have been rather vague. “He had told me that he would only be gone a few minutes; that he was just going pop into the candy store. He didn’t come back after half an hour so I went out to look for him, but by the time I found him it was too late. People see him as a Royal but I see him only as Andy, and I hope he knew that.” Laura said in an interview.
We were also able to get a brief moment with his distraught mother. In a statement she said “I am deeply saddened by my son’s death. No one deserves to die like this and I pray all those who were involved will be brought to justice. As a mother, I am begging you, if you have any information please come forward.” The few people close to the victim are having trouble recovering from the shock of his sudden death. But it seems to me that it was just another bloody clash between gangs, and this Royal found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time.
