A massive murder investigation is under way in Iberia Parish, where a 15-year-old young man was savagely attacked and murdered. Quawan 'Bobby' Charles was reported missing by his mother in Baldwin, Louisiana on October 30. According the newly elected Iberia Sherriff Tommy Romero, the young teens' brutal death has been ruled a homicide and what happened to him is part of an active, ongoing investigation.

Eerily reminiscent to the unspeakable, disfiguration of 13-year-old Emmitt Till, Charles' body was discovered in the same horrifying manner. His family reports Quawan was found 20 miles away from his home, near a sugarcane field.

No human being should be subject to this manner of violence. We offer our most heartfelt condolences to the family of Quawana 'Bobby' Charles. We extend our thoughts, and prayers for strength go out to you during this time of bereavement. In addition, we join the prayers of the community for expeditious capture of those responsible.
