Shock causes the video that shows a 16-year-old boy fatally injuring a 47-year-old man with a punch in order to show off to his friends.
In the video, Connor Stewart appears to be approaching the 47-year-old Michael Rhodes, who was a well-known drug user, and pretends of punching him. Rhodes tries to make some move to protect himself until he receives the fatal punch. The 47-year-old falls to the ground and begins bleeding with the suspect’s friends to feel that something terrible happened.
At first, Stuart claimed he was in defense, a claim that he then denied admitting that he hit and killed Rhodes just to show off. However, the court that dealt with the case of the 16-year-old boy sentenced only three years in a reformatory.
The victim’s mother, who died in the hospital three weeks after the heavy injuries caused by the fall on the ground by a punch, told her for her son that he was a confectioner who had a problem with alcohol and drugs and was trying to live .
For his part, the offender’s advocate claimed that his client was a young boy who had been the victim of domestic violence while his parents had separated.
