This is absurd, man who died and was killed. He is no burglar, intruder or any thing of the sort. Anthony was a young driven entrepreneur, who had his life set on the right track. He was set to begin school and start his own business. He was well known and loved by many far and wide. These people have something to hide and cover up and they are definitely protecting their family. I pray the cops look pass that bogus story and investigate the murder they should. Anthony didnt promote violence and tried to avoid it at all cost. He enjoyed life and having fun, this news post is absolutely wrong and any more reports should be deeply looked into and factually reported.

My name is MYEESHA M ROBINSON, the above comment was typed and posted by me. Anthony was the love of my life and my friend. I don't know how,why this happened. I do know that this story absolutely makes no sense. It does not add up, these people are covering something up. The mother may be protecting her son or her son protecting her. All in all anthony was no burglar,thief or intruder. He would never enter some one homes if he was not welcome. This is devasting and anthony touched alot of people with his positive spirit. He was loved by many far and wide. As I stated above the police in lawrenceville need to look deep within and uncover this case. anthony was murdered plan and simply and there was no self defense I that. Anthony's family and I will not rest til we get the truth out.
