We had a phone conversation with his mother, and it was clear that she is in a great deal of shock and anguish. She claims that Daemond was a wonderful child who belonged to a very warm and supportive household. He was her one and only child and her closest companion. The family is begging for the law to do its job. If anyone has any information, they should share it and try to assist this family. You’re an idiot if you try to rob someone and then shoot them because they’re running away from you. smh You fools don’t get any points for coolness fr.
