The family of Cannon Hinnant is still struggling after losing their five year old son to a senseless act of murder in North Carolina by their neighbor.
The poolice say Hinnant didn’t die from a stray bullet or a neglected firearm as a popular fake meme pervasing the internet says. Police say a neighbor walked up to the child while he was playing outside with his siblings and shot him point-blank in the back of the head.
“My baby didn’t deserve this,” Cannon’s mother, Bonny Waddell, said. “He had the biggest smile, the biggest eyes.”
“We lost a big piece of our family,” she said. “We all. He changed all of our lives. He touched everybody that he knew.”
“This man took my girls when he took my baby,” Waddell said. “They know he’s in a better place.”
“I want the death penalty and I’m gonna seek it,” Bonny said.
Cannon’s father agrees with his mother. With a GoFundMe that has topped $700,000.
“We’ve discussed a memorial park for Cannon where kids can go and ride their bikes because he loved that so much,” Cannon’s grandmother said.
Sessoms has been charged with first-degree murder.
