Shooting Victim’s Family Marks Solemn Anniversary


The family of Tommy Johnson, a promising high school student and football star who was killed on January 10, 2001, marked the anniversary of his murder with a gravesite visit. “It’s been five years now, and I wonder where those years went, because Tierra, Travis, Tysean, your father, Thomas, and Juanita, your mother, miss you so much, as if it were only yesterday,” wrote Juanita Johnson in a mournful letter to her son. Johnson’s parents, seen above, decorated his grave with balloons and his portrait.
