Billy’s Story
In 2011, Billy tragically lost his life. After a night at the theater with his mother, Billy was walking home from METRO and was shot and killed for attempting to help a woman who was being harassed. The DC police (thanks mostly to the dedication of Detective Charles Fultz, Detective Smith, and their colleagues) connected the killer to this murder a year later. He was already in jail for a carjacking that he committed just hours before the murder. In 2014 he was convicted of both crimes and was sentenced to a total of 38 years in prison.


Billy had volunteered as a tutor at Horton’s Kids, and our hope is that by following his lead and donating to Horton’s Kids, we can help bring more safety, love and education to our city’s children to point them away from the kind of stupid violence that ended Billy’s life.


Please donate and/or join us at the party to commemorate the generous and unforgettable love Billy shared with us all for 33 eventful years.


Thank you from Billy’s family to yours.
