3 friends on fishing trip killed in 'massacre,' Florida sheriff says

FROSTPROOF, Fla. – Three Florida men were fatally beaten and shot while on their way to fish in a remote area late Friday night, according to Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.

During a media briefing near the scene on Lake Streety Road on Saturday morning, Judd identified the victims as Damion Tillman, 23, Keven Springfield, 30, and Brandon Rollins, 27. The three men had been friends for years, Judd said, adding the families of the victims gave police permission to release their names.

Judd, who has worked at the department since 1972, described the killings as a “massacre.”

“This is a horrific scene,” Judd said Saturday. “I’ve been to a lot of murder scenes in my life, and this ranks among the worst.”

Upon arriving at the scene, Rollins’ found his son barely alive and his two friends both dead.

Judd said Rollins was able to say a few things to his dad before he died, which the sheriff’s office didn’t release at the morning briefing.

Judd said it appeared that Tillman arrived first in his red pickup truck, and that while he was being killed, Rollins and Springfield arrived in a white pickup truck and also were shot.

“In Brandon’s father’s excitement to run to help his son, he forgot his cellphone at home. So now he is out in the middle, as you can see, of no place without any communication,” Judd said. The father drove back to the nearest convenience store to call 911 and said “my son needs help.”

A 17-year-old girl, the daughter of the convenience store’s owner, jumped into Rollins’ father's vehicle and the two drove back to Lake Streety Road, Judd said.

By the time authorities arrived, Rollins had died of his injuries.

“These folks appear to be beaten and shot. ... We are seeking leads, we need help so we can solve this crime sooner rather than later,” Judd said.

He did not say whether authorities have identified any suspects, but noted that his department is offering a $5,000 for any information leading to the capture of the killers. He said investigators believe more than one person was involved in the slayings.

Describing the “quiet, quaint” community surrounded by groves, forest and cattle ranches, Judd said the scene area was “about as far out in the woods as you can get.”

Sounds horrific!

According to PCSO, Damion Tillman, 23, Keven Springfield, 30 and Brandon Rollins, 27 were beaten and shot as they met up to go fishing around 10 p.m. on Lake Streety near US 27.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said Tillman showed up to the lake first and was killed. Rollins and Springfield arrived together a short time later and were shot.

Rollins was able to call his father and said, “Help”. His father knew his son had gone fishing and immediately headed to Lake Streety.

Deputies said when he arrived, he found his son barely alive, and his two friends dead. PCSO said Rollins was able to say a few things to his father, but details about their conversation is not being released.

According to PCSO, Rollins’ dad left his home so fast, he forgot his cellphone. He drove to the nearest gas station to call 911.

When first responders arrived, all three men were dead. They appear to have been beaten and shot, according to PCSO.

According to the families, the three men have been best friends for years and were fishing Friday night (on land, not in a boat).

Sheriff Judd said, “I’ve been to a lot of murder scenes, but this is one of the worst I’ve ever seen.”

Judd said there is a $5,000 reward being offered for information that leads to an arrest in this case.

I was going to write what R42 posted.

Lots of people go night fishing because that's when the fish are swimming around and looking for food.

It's actually easier to catch fish at night, rather than during the day. Particularly in a lake.

So here's what I learned from police dramas. The violent nature of this "random" crime points to a person or persons they knew, as the murderer(s).

Usually, if it's a random crime, it'll be a stabbing or a shooting, and then that's it.

But based on what was reported, it was a "massacre." Something so violent, that even the cops were stunned.

I'm not saying it's a guarantee, but the signs point to these murders being committed by someone they knew.

The fact that the murderer stuck around for the other two to arrive tells me he knew all three were going to be there.

It's possible they accidentally interrupted a man doing something he didn't want anyone to know about, but you'd think if someone like that had heard either of the trucks approaching, they would have just run off instead of sticking around and bludgeoning and shooting three guys to death in a massacre.

by Anonymousreply 5907/19/2020

My guess is that they either interrupted some sort of drug operation or they were hunted down by people who knew they'd be coming there to fish. And yes, it probably all relates to drug activity.

The red pickup one of them was driving has a sticker on the windshield that says "REDNECK" That's just awesome.

I don't think the killers waited around for the other two victims. I think the killers were getting it done on the first victim when the other two showed up to the scene, saw what was happening and tried to help their buddy.

This was personal. The perps knew their victims and habits.

They were beaten first as an attempt to get information about something, or to avenge something or someone.

It was personal to whomever perpetuated the crimes by first beating them, and then shooting them, or else, they would have just been shot. Why beat them and then shoot them. Beating them involves great risk. Shooting’s easy and effective.

Drugs, money, sex, revenge.

Very small possibility of a duo set of psychos or one highly skilled psycho, randomly running around Florida’s backwoods, on a weekend murder spree. However, because it’s “FLORIDA”, the chances of this being the case are not off the table.

Also, the father’s story sounds like an attempted design in plausibility. Almost no one leaves their son’s side at the point when the son’s taking his last breath. The paternal bond just doesn’t allow it. Sounds FISHY AF.

FYI, fishing on Friday night is totally commonplace for country folk.

It does if the father is panicking or doesn't realize what's happening.

That said, it's super suspicious that the son called him asking for help, and he put down the phone he just got that call on and left it behind. He didn't turn around to go get it and didn't stay on the line with his son? That's the head-scratcher for me.

He probably fronted them the money to and they got beaten and robbed either because the money wasn't right or they argued with the supplier. Daddy was probably waitin' by the phone in case they called. As for Miss Thing at the 7-11 she was most likely familiar with all of them.

Given the current heat wave, fishing at night was at least a plausible cover. People do forget their cell phones.

Quiet and quaint means lots of bad stuff underneath a facade designed to keep outsiders away and draw no attention to what an inbred corrupt place it is. When I think of a massacre, I think at least double digits. This is just a garden variety killing.

Probably a drug deal gone bad or someone who owed money to someone else related to drugs. Damion was part of a Redneck Nation-related group. Some of his FB friends think this will spark a race war. More likely, the local "mafia" (probably the scion of a local business person) wanted money rather than excuses.

It shouldn’t be difficult for police to find whoever the murderer is since they’ve got last words from one of the victims. This piece of information they’re not releasing, that tells us it’s part of evidence and they don’t want to tip the perpetrator and his accomplices off. Likely someone the victims knew and not a random crime. If it was random the police would have put out APB with the information or description provided by the victim because it’d be in best interest of public safety.

But it’s a balancing act with these cases. When the police first suspected and learned of Richard Ramirez being the Night Stalker, they couldn’t release information about him to the public for fear that doing so would drive him underground and harder to find.

The dad is suspicious for a number of reasons. I could give him the benefit of the doubt about leaving the cell phone. But then he left his dying son to go call 911 instead of putting him in the truck and taking him to the hospital? The son could have already been dead, but dad needed a story that allowed him, and him alone, to be the person who heard those dying words. The girl getting in the truck is not that suspicious as likely familiarity with her family would make sense in a small town.

They might have been fishing. It is a great cover. But they most certainly going to get fucked up too. I agree with the meth angle. Which does raise the possibility that some of you guys fantasies of redneck gay porn might have been feasible. I have a kid that I trick with from time to time and he learned all about meth from his daddy.

And like the poster above, I have come upon a loved one who had just been stabbed and beaten. I carried them to my car and took them directly to the hospital. And I was in a state of panic.

Sadly, it really isn't. Especially not in a small redneck town like this. If you went off to college after high school did you not notice the people in your age group who had reverted to hanging out with High Schoolers when you came back to visit? Same dynamic here.

Hey, I said if they were meth heads that there was probably a sexual component.

How about this: The 18 year old had daddy issues that he was working out with the Dad through meth fueled sexual relations. The older boys found out that the dad and eighteen year old were involved in a kinky sexual relationship. But they were involved in trysts of their own which included some boys from the dark side of town who were regularly railing them together in a cheap motel room with their BBCs. It all came to a head that night and the Dad planned to kill the soon to be squealers. He arranged for the BBCs to be waiting for the first two boys so they could have a ritualistic sex session that ended up some type of erotic asphyxiation gone wrong. But the Mexican gang happened upon them and the shooting began. Dad knew he had no choice but to let the son die so as not to incriminate him. Plus, he found some of the Mexicans "hot".

Two small time hoodlums and their younger friend out for trouble. Given the older guys' histories, drugs and/or stolen goods are probably involved. Neither was a stranger to violence. The Sheriff thinks he can whitewash this, but it took only a few minutes to assemble their arrest records.

Really r261? You felt a need to point that out? Did I say farmer's tans? Let's look at what you used to make your point;

[quote] Of course, that was before a nice tan became a symbol of wealth. But the term stuck.

Is a nice tan the same thing as a farmer's tan? I was referring to the fact that over the decades, tans have now become a symbol of wealth as more of the commoner's work inside. It used to be that alabaster skin was more representative of wealth because you didn't have to expose yourself to the elements.

R224, the first time I encountered the word massacre (my mom: “LOOK IT UP”) was in a Laura Ingalls Wilder book, where Ma and someone else were whispering about a massacre by the local natives and Ma shushed the other lady and said “Little pitcher have big ears” and I had to ask what that meant because there wasn’t an entry for that in the dictionary.

Frostproof is pretty much landlocked, for Florida.

These guys were, specifically, catfishing. I can believe they were both night fishing & finalizing a drug deal. I don't think Dad was the killer. I think Dad did know about a possible drug deal, though.

The age differences between the 3 friends is kind of a lot for people in their 20s, but it's a small town. IME, in small towns, friendships are more disparate. People go outside their normal zones just because there aren't that many options.

This town desperately needs a reality TV show; it's like The Andy Griffith Show - only on meth. The Dollar General Store is the central of town life (such as it is).

The sheriff clearly likes to run his mouth and is probably part of some corrupt local machine that's kept him in office forever.

Tempting to change the scratchy polyester sheets on the bed for these cotton one, but they smell like the inside of a Dollar Store, even through the thick plastic packaging. I'm two extension cords and a tiny portable heater, with burn marks. I'm emptied out and washed bottles of Molton & Brown body wash and shampoo and conditioner; beside me are the cheap stuff that will be put into me and smell nothing like Re-Charge . Black Pepper.

To shed some light on the atmosphere in Polk County... Most people in central Florida know that Polk County is a hotbed (so to speak) of child pornography. The linked story is only the latest bust. There were 17 men arrested in 2019, 11 in 2018, 42 in March, 2017, and another 39 in May, 2017, all in Polk County. I'm sure there are more.

I don't think the child porn has anything to do with these killings -- but knowing that at least sets the stage for you to do your theorizing.

LAKELAND, Fla. – Polk County Sheriff's detectives are asking for the public's help identifying suspects after three men were "viciously murdered" on their way to fish in a remote area late Friday night.

The three men, who had been friends for years, were fatally beaten and shot, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said at a media briefing Saturday. A manhunt is now underway for the killers and there is a $30,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.

Describing the “quiet, quaint” community surrounded by groves, forest and cattle ranches, Judd said the area where the killings happened was “about as far out in the woods as you can get.”

“This is a horrific scene. I have been to a lot of murder scenes in my life and this ranks up with the worst of them,” Judd said. “They were viciously murdered.”

Judd identified the victims as Damion Tillman, 23, Keven Springfield, 30, and Brandon Rollins, 27. Police do not typically release victim's names, but Judd said the families of the victims gave the sheriff's office permission to do so.

According to the preliminary investigation, Judd said, it appeared that Tillman arrived first in his red pickup, and that while he was being killed, Rollins and Springfield arrived in a white pickup and were shot.

Just after 10 p.m. Friday, Rollins called his dad on his cellphone and asked for help. Judd said Rollins’ father knew his son was fishing with his two friends and drove to the site.

Upon arriving, the father found his son barely alive and the two friends dead.

“In Brandon’s father’s excitement to run to help his son, he forgot his cellphone at home. So now he is out in the middle, as you can see, of no place without any communication,” Judd said. The father drove back to the nearest convenience store to call 911 and said “my son needs help.”

A 17-year-old daughter of the convenience store’s owner jumped into the vehicle of Rollins’ father and the two drove back to the scene on Lake Streety Road, Judd said.

Polk County EMS, Polk Fire Rescue and Polk County Sheriff's Office were notified, but by the time they arrived, Rollins had died of his injuries. Judd said Rollins was able to say a few things to his dad before he died, which the sheriff’s office hasn't revealed.

Judd said that the sheriff's office believes there may have been more than one killer and asked the public for help identifying the suspects. The sheriff said he does not know whether the killers knew the victims at this point in the investigation, but noted that the murders took place on a clay dirt road "way out in the middle of God's country."

"You just don't stumble upon somebody out here," Judd said. "It's not like there's a lot of people out here."

The department is offering a $30,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest. Judd originally raised the reward from $5,000 to $15,000. Then, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement stepped in with another $10,000. The Florida Sheriff’s Association added $5,000.

“We are seeking leads, we need help so that we can solve this crime sooner rather than later,” said Judd.

Robert is an old looking 21 year old.

So the story so far is that the three victims and three suspects were in Dollar General. One of the suspects thought one of the victims had stolen his truck. Suspects over heard victims say they were going fishing so they followed them out and one suspect confronted one victim over the stolen truck and then shot all three. Suspects then went and ordered McDonalds.

Given the main suspect has 230 prior charges and is currently out on bail for breaking a man's arm with a crowbar, I guess it is possible it is as simple as that. Violent simple person attacks other simple people over possible stolen property.

Most black men with long felonies are out on the street. Most people bond or bail out and so many get early release. It seems pretty arbitrary as to who ends up in jail for long periods and who doesn't. Most get released as the jails and prisons are too crowded.

Boosterishness is tiresome regardless of whether it's North Florida or anywhere else. Lots of places have famous sons and daughters and for a real sweep of FLW, you need to go to Oak Park, IL where you can see how it evolved. The sheriff may be popular down there but this seems to have been an easy case and he just seems like a publicity seeking gasbg, like a lot of elected law enforcement or DAs.

This really would make a great Netflix movie or mini-series. Start off with the murders, then backtrack into the background and personal stories of both victims and perps.

R513 Oops! Freudian slip

R516 You aren't wrong in that black men are 1.75 x more likely than a white man to get a sentence for the same crime and black men typically receive 10% longer sentences for the same crime. That doesn't change the fact that most people (black and white) that get arrested are back out on the streets in no time and that many get early release.

[quote] CCTV shows suspects in fishing trip 'massacre' following victim into Florida dollar store

CCTV footage from a Florida convenience store has shown the suspects arrested in connection with a fishing trip “massacre” in the same store as one of the victims just before they were murdered.

William "Robert" Wiggins, 21, Tony “TJ” Wiggins, 26, and Mary Whittemore, 27, were arrested in connection with the murder of 23-year-old Damion Tillman, 30-year-old Keven Springfield, and 27-year-old Brandon Rollins on 17 July, police announced on Wednesday.

The footage, shared by Polk Sheriff Grady Judd, shows the suspects: two brothers and a girlfriend, inside the Dollar General store in Frostproof, Florida.

The video also displays an interaction between Tillman and the older Wiggins brother as Tillman is at the store counter, police said.

Tillman and his friends were said to have been preparing to go on a fishing trip when they were murdered in a killing that Sheriff Judd described as "horrific" and a "massacre" on Friday.

A Dollar General store clerk told the authorities that on Friday, Tillman said that he and his friends were meeting at the lake and that the suspects, who were also in the store, overheard the conversation.

The 21-year-old told detectives that his brother shot all three victims and asked him to help him put Tillman into the back of one of the trucks before they drove to McDonald's, according to police.

The 26-year-old has been charged on four counts including first-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

His brother and Ms Whittemore have been charged with accessory after the fact, detectives say. The older Wiggins brother and Ms Whittemore have refused to cooperate with the police.

“I’ve been to a lot of murder scenes in my life, and this ranks among the worst,” Sheriff Judd, who has worked in the sheriff’s department since 1972 said on Saturday.

All three suspects will have first appearance hearings on Thursday.
