A cab driver that Hilliard often used for rides dropped Hilliard off at a home where three men were waiting for her, his mother, Lyniece Nelson, said today.The police have only stated at this time that they are looking into the death as a homicide and not a hate crime.
But Hilliard immediately called the driver back, voicing concern about the situation, Nelson said.
The driver “started to hear her say, ‘What are you doing,’ then scream out loud ‘No,’ then her phone dropped, a few muffling noises, then the phone went dead,” Nelson said. “By the time he got back around the corner, there was no one in sight.”
What a horrible news story. When will all this hate and madness stop?
Our sympathies and hearts go out to Shelly Hillard’s family.
