This is one of the saddest stories of the year. George Leroy Baker III, 81, left Tempe, Arizona to celebrate his granddaughter’s wedding in Lynchburg, Virginia. Walking across the street to a diner from his hotel, some teens allegedly beat him to death for fun.
The three teenagers were walking down the street when one allegedly said he would beat the first person he met — to impress a girl. Baker walked right into the dare and died for it.
The teens included two 16-year-olds and a thirteen-year-old. They have been charged with murder but their names have been withheld.
Baker appears to have been a wonderful father and his family must now deal with this tragedy at what should have been one of the happiest times for the family.
