Bobby Tillman’s Mother Monique Rivarde Sends Message to Michael Brown’s Mother [EXCLUSIVE]



Douglasville teenager Bobby Tillman was killed at a house party in 2010 in an incident that made national news. Tillman — a freshman at Georgia Perimeter College at the time — was not involved in the altercation that started the fight. The house party was organized to celebrate two high school girls’ good grades, but the party was crashed by trouble makers who were later sentenced to prison for their role in Tillman’s death.

Tillman’s mother Monique Rivarde stopped by Praise 102.5 / 102.9 and had a special message for Michael Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden.

“I’m so sorry for what happened to your son,” said Rivarde. “You are not alone. You are my sister now. You have so many sisters that will support you, that love you, that are here for you.”
