On February 10, 2012 Timothy was murdered because of a disagreement over a song, according to Brooke. She had received a phone call from one of her sisters that morning saying their 31-year-old brother had been shot 6-7 times, mainly in the abdomen area, and had passed shortly thereafter.

He was shot outside of his girlfriend’s house, of whom he had been dating for three days, according to Brooke. He was arguing with two men who were present at the house when one of the men branded the weapon and ended Timothy’s life. The other drove the Murderer from the scene, wrote Brooke. Later that morning, the authorities would apprehend the suspect.

“As siblings we stuck together and always carried each other through the difficult time,” said Brooke.

While he didn’t have set plans, he always talked about settling down with the right girl wrote Brooke. She said he loved his nieces and nephews, wanted children, loved cats, had a heart of gold, and a great smile.
