Vaughan Spoke About Ellababedi Role On Other People’s Life
Vaughn almost choked up when she spoke about her son’s impact on others.
“He had to help around in the house a lot to help me because I was a single mom. I had to raise my children alone so he helped a lot. He was very hopeful, very supportive helping me take care of his brother and sister.”
Vaughn added, “He touched everybody that met him. I was not aware of how transcendent his personality was gonna be throughout his friends, His friends are telling me that everybody that ever met him liked him, you know everybody that met him was really touched by him. They said that he had an amazing personality that just everybody wanted to be around him.”
Vaughan Request To Arrest Her Son’s Killer
She also pleaded for help tracking down the shooters, claiming several people were involved.
“I will find closure when we find the person that did this and we convict them,” Vaughn said. I will not rest until this happens because his life was taken too soon. I will never be able to see the man he was supposed to become. This is not gonna bring my son back but it will give me some closure and peace knowing that the city is a little safer and our children are safe because I still have two other children that I have to protect.”
