The mother of a man shot to death and discovered in a Fulton County park Monday struggled to understand why someone would take his life.
Whoever killed Derron Holcomb “took my baby,” a tearful Linda McKee told Channel 2 Action News on Tuesday. A day earlier, a jogger had come across the body of McKee’s 24-year-old son at Creel Park in College Park. Her son often visited the park, she said.
“My son did not have to be shot down like a dog,” McKee said. “It’s got to be a sick-minded person to do this to my baby.”
Holcomb, she said, started the new year with a resolution: He would find a better job.
Tuesday afternoon, investigators said they had no suspects nor leads in his death.
