Before Tillman’s arrest, members of The Harrison family spoke to ABC13 their grief and their hope for justice.
Harrison’s mother, Lisa Smith, said of the day before his death: “Either I said, ‘God bless you’ or ‘I love you,’ and he said, ‘Okay mom,’ and that was it.” “The next night, my son died.”
“Every step you take is one step closer to justice,” Smith said. “I don’t know how you can live every day with what you did. It’s wrong. You’re taking a life, turning yourself in. You killed my son. His 89-year-old grandfather had to bury him. His family, his father, my husband, his brothers, and his wife. It was some The nights are hard, so surrender yourself. And for the people who help you, they should be ashamed of themselves. You are wrong, and you will not be forgiven for doing the wrong thing. This is my message.”
Tillman is from Missouri City, and investigators said he had ties to Weimar, Smithville and Houston.
It was not clear whether it was the anonymous advice that led to Tillman’s arrest.
