• Two New Jersey teens beat a homeless man in an alleyway
  • The victim was a 63-year-old elderly, who died due to blunt trauma in the head
  • Police stated suspects may have filmed the victim's dead body

The police filed criminal charges against two NJ teenagers suspected of beating a man until he died. They then filmed the lifeless body of the homeless man in an alleyway, authorities said.

Severe Injuries

The teens, whose names were not released by the police because they are juveniles, were a 17-year-old female and a 15-year-old boy. The two are accused of beating to death, Bobby Hill, Jr., a homeless man in Camden, Thursday (June 25). According to reports, Camden County police, responding to a call about a man lying in the alley, found the 63-year-old victim on 1100 block Kaighn Avenue a couple of minutes after midnight.

He sustained “severe” head injuries, and was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital where he was brought, Camden County Prosecutor's Office, in a statement, said. Police officers were able to track down the juveniles with the help of footage from a surveillance camera. One of the scenes in the security footage showed the two walking with Hill into the alley and another part showing them leaving without the 63-year-old homeless man a couple of minutes later.

Suspects Arrested

The arrest of the suspects was announced by Camden County Prosecutor Jill Mayer on Tuesday night. She added that the mobile phone of one of the suspects had a video of the lifeless body lying in the alley.

According to police officers, the suspects may have filmed Hill’s beaten body after the attack using the mobile phone in question. A medical examiner said that the cause of death of the 63-year-old, who is from Sicklerville, is blunt force trauma to the head.

Violent Deaths

Reports say that Hill was the sixth person in Camden to have died due to violent attacks this year. Official records show that there were 18 homicides in the area in the same period in 2019. The prosecutor’s office said that investigations into those deaths are ongoing, though no arrests have been announced at this time. Authorities have been asking anyone who had any information about the homicides to get in touch with Detective Kevin Courtney of the prosecutor’s office or Camden County Police Detective Shawn Donlon.
