Murdered: Shakilus Townsend

Four teenagers, including a girl of 15, have appeared in court accused of murdering 16-year-old Shakilus Townsend in south London.

Shakilus, from Deptford, was beaten with a baseball bat and repeatedly stabbed in Thornton Heath on 3 July.

Tyrell Ellis, 18, of Thornton Heath, two youths, aged 17 and 16, and the girl, were remanded in custody by Sutton Magistrates.

One man, 22, has been bailed while a fifth youth was arrested on Thursday.

The defendants will next appear at the Old Bailey on 16 October.

The 22-year-old man was bailed to return to a south London police station next month. (Source)

What a waste of a young life. What had he done to deserve dying like that?

It’s been said that this was over a 15 year old girl (who has now been arrested and charged) and that she filmed the attack on her mobile phone…… smh 😦

You have to wonder what exactly goes through these kids heads. When did they become so cold and evil?

Rest In Peace Shakilus Townsend.
