The teen, Randon Nichols, was set to turn 19 the next day before someone gunned him down in cold blood. The TikTok mom, whom fans call Mama Tot, tearfully told her 7 million followers she needs their help, asserting she never asks them for anything and that at least one of her many followers has to know something.
According to a report from WKRN, a local station, Nichols mentioned that police have two leads. Authorities haven’t released much else regarding the 18-year-old’s murder. Mama Tot asserted she’d never felt hatred toward anyone, adding the feeling was unfamiliar to the influencer.
The New York Post mentioned Nichols is a mother of four, and her son Randon was the youngest of the bunch. The TikTok star noted her son was in the best years of his life, and someone had taken that from him, adding that the loss to her family had been profound.
A GoFundMe account is in place to help pay funeral expenses for the family. The grieving mother has since put a pause on the fundraiser, which has already amassed over $281,000 in donations.
