Best Friends Were ‘Viciously Murdered’ While Going Out Fishing, Sheriff Says


Judd said that anyone with information about the triple-homicide should call the sheriff's office at 863-298-6200, while Heartland Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 cash reward for information that leads to the arrests of the suspects responsible. Judd said the murder scene ranked as one of the worst he has seen in his long career in law enforcement.

The victims-Damion Tillman, 23, Keven Springfield, 30, and Brandon Rollins, 27-had met up at a remote lake on Friday night to go fishing, with Tillman arriving first and being attacked by an unknown assailant or assailants who then beat and shot Rollins and Springfield when they arrived.

However, Rollins was able to call his father and say "help", Judd noted.

Judd said the pickups were found in the middle of the road, parallel to each other-driver's window to driver's window.

Rollins was able to call his father and said, "Help". He said the men were beaten and shot.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, who has worked at the department since 1972, described the killings at a Frostproof lake a "massacre". "There's a attractive lake where three very close friends were going fishing last night". "They've already killed three", he concluded.

"This is a horrific scene". He was asleep when his son called and cried for help. When Rollins and Springfield arrived, they saw Tillman being beaten and were shot at by the attackers.

Judd also wouldn't speculate on whether the attackers knew the victims, although he also suggested it wasn't a random attack.

'When he arrived he found his son Brandon barely alive, and his two friends deceased, ' the sheriff's office said in a press release.

Judd added that the suspect or suspects may have known the men, saying, "You don't just stumble upon somebody out here". He drove to a nearby convenience store, and the clerk helped him reach authorities, but by the time they arrived, Rollins had died.

The sheriff said they believe there was more than one killer, and that the victims knew their murderers.
