Georgia Boy found minutes from home after being missing for 2 days: ‘He didn’t deserve this’

A mother and her son were inseparable and had a special bond. The youngster even took his mother, the queen of his life, to the prom. He thought they had many happy years together, but unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be.

A mother from Lithonia, Georgia was blessed with a loving son and the couple’s relationship was one of a kind. Although life was not always easy for them, they always supported each other.

The sweet boy showed signs of maturity and kindness when he invited his mother to his fifth grade prom for a touching reason. Everyone knew that the youngster would become a wonderful man, but they never had the chance to see him become a reality.

He was a special boy

Jamiren Crosby was a straight college student with a bright future ahead of him. His mother, Chanell Crosby, described him as “outgoing”, “brave” and “talented”.

The mother was eager to see how her son’s life would unfold and she had high hopes for him. She never imagined that tragedy awaited her around the corner.

The eighth grader attended DeKalb Alternative School and also joined the football team. There were no limits to the success that awaited Jamiren, and his mother was proud of him every step of the way.

He took his mother to the ball

Chanell recalled a special memory that showed her boy’s true nature. A bouquet in hand, he asked his mother to accompany him to his fifth year prom. She says:

“I never wore a ballgown until I went with him… I remember everything that night. We danced the whole time.”

Chanell did not complete high school and therefore encouraged her son to perform and excel in every opportunity that came his way.

She told Jamiren that education was necessary and he took her words to heart. Chanel shared: “It was hard work with Jamiren, but I was always going to push him to make sure he got the best out of the world.”

The unexpected tragedy

The mother was eager to see how her son’s life would unfold and she had high hopes for him. She never imagined that tragedy awaited her around the corner.

On September 17, 2022, Jamiren left home with a group of new friends. It looked like an ordinary Saturday, but life was about to change forever for the family.

He was a good person and his mother did her best to keep him out of harm’s way. Family member Brittanie Malone said around 25 people started looking for Jamiren when he hadn’t returned home. Unfortunately, something shocking happened.

They had a hard time coping

The young man was found dead a few minutes from his home. Malone was heartbroken after learning of Jamiren’s passing and said: “He didn’t deserve this.”

Her mother also struggled to understand the devastating news and couldn’t understand why anyone would hurt her. She says:

“It was insane…it could have been envy or jealousy. He didn’t know what he was getting into as a growing kid.”

The mother’s message for other parents

The mother had a message for people, hoping her son’s passing would not be in vain. Chanell expressed:

“Love your people because tomorrow is not promised. I just want everyone to know that it could [happen to anyone].”

“It’s me, and I never [knew] that I would be here talking about my son”, continued the heartbroken woman.

Family support

The family started a GoFundMe page to help with funeral costs. On their page, they posted:

“We need help putting him to sleep. Anything will help us, and I show gratitude and appreciate any help that [you] can give us.”

The online answer

Many netizens offered their condolences to the family and hoped that justice would be done for the youngster taken too soon. People also shared that they keep the mother in their prayers:

“Truly sorry for the loss of your son. He looks like a son to be very proud of. May you find peace in your life. I hope justice will be served.”
