Raymond Phillips Jr.
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
A new chapter, a sad ending
Known by his nickname — “TJ” — he adored the color red. He enjoyed basketball. He was the life of the party and loved collecting new shoes.
Having recently moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, he was just starting a new chapter in his life. A seventh-grader at Broadmoor Middle School, he woke his sister up every morning, had fun hanging out with friends and made sure he always looked good for girls.
