The suspects described Tillman, 18, as an innocent bystander. They blamed others for his death. Tillman was beaten and stomped to death at a Saturday night house party in Douglasville.
"Bobby looked at me and I was like, ‘What are you looking at?'" Boykins told the station. "A friend of mine came and he said, ‘Well, we've got to pound him.' And I said, ‘Nah, I don't know him. He didn't talk about anything.' [Then the friend] ran across the street or whatever and punched [Tillman] and he fell on top of the car, so while I was trying to pull my friend off of him, more people came and jumped in. I don't know who all those people are."
