Camden, N.J. – A 15-year-old male and a 17-year-old female have been charged with first-degree Murder in the June 25 homicide of a homeless Camden man, according to Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill S. Mayer and Camden County Police Chief Joseph Wysocki.
Police found the body of Bobby J. Hill Jr., 63, in an alleyway near the 1100 block of Kaighn Ave. shortly after midnight. The medical examiner said Hill died of blunt force trauma after being beaten to death.
Through the investigation, surveillance footage was discovered showing the teenagers entering the alleyway with Hill shortly before the crime happened. Several minutes later, they were filmed leaving the area without Hill.
Detectives also retrieved video footage from one of the juvenile’s cell phones of Hill’s body in the alleyway after the assault.
Due to the ages of those charged, the names of the juveniles are not being released to the public pursuant to N.J. Statute 2A:4A-60.
All persons charged with crimes are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
