BIRTH: September 11, 1996
DEATH: June 11, 2008
Aziz Damar Booth, 11, of Charlottesville, was found slain in the kitchen of his home with a fatal gunshot wound after a botched robbery. The robbery left 23-year-old Rueben Lewis III, Aziz step-father, hospitalized at the University of Virginia Medical Center with a non-life threatening gunshot wound.
Police arrested a neighbor, on charges of capital murder, robbery, malicious wounding and other related charges. The neighbor reported to police headquarters of his own accord where he was arrested for the senseless murder of an 11 year old boy.
The neighbor knocked on the family’s door and asked to borrow $10. Then he pulled a 9mm pistol and ransacked the house, filling Booth’s backpack with video games, electronics and a 2 liter Pepsi bottle. The cold-blooded murderer ordered Booth and Lewis face-down on the kitchen floor. Just before he fired one shot into each, he told the police that the boy said…
“Please don’t, I love my mama.”
…then he shot and killed the sweet innocent child for no reason.
