Parents of Unarmed Teen Killed By Police Demand Answers Plan Lawsuit


SENECA, SC (WYFF) – The parents of an unarmed 19-year-old who was killed by police held a news conference Tuesday afternoon, a day after the solicitor who is handling the case said she will not share the preliminary findings of the State Law Enforcement Division’s investigation into the shooting. The Hammonds said they feel like they have played by the rules, but have gotten no answers.

Angie Hammond said Tuesday that witnesses to the shooting say that Tiller “murdered Zach in cold blood in a car that was not moving.”

She said 10th Circuit Solicitor Chrissy Adams has been saying the family would get answers once the State Law Enforcement Division investigation was complete. Angie Hammond said SLED gave Adams its findings on Aug. 31, and she “has been lying for the past two weeks.”

“My son was murdered, and someone needs to tell me why,” she said.
