Frederick Marshall Rosemond

Age 16

West Palm Beach, Florida

Left a party, never came home

Jokes about his sister were met with a roar of laughter during a speech he gave at a party for her. The Royal Palm Beach High School student was on his way to becoming an entertainer, making short comedy videos for his social media.

On a Sunday morning, he and a friend left a birthday party and went to the park. The next day, a teddy bear and candles sat in the park, a memorial for the two boys.

On Jan. 13, 2019, Frederick Marshall Rosemond, 16, was shot just outside West Palm Beach, Florida. Police did not immediately know the motive for the shooting.
