Police believes Matthews was willing to do whatever the carjackers wanted, but they still killed him. Detective Ebony Johnson mentioned that the 15-year-old along with his mother turned himself in. She said, “It wasn’t necessary for them to take his life. They were in compliance. They were getting out of the vehicle at that point.” She is urging anyone with information to please come forward. Johnson said, “Think about it as being one of your family members that lost their life. You would want them to be brought to justice.”
