A bisexual Alabama teen was found dead just a few days after telling his mother he thought someone was trying to kill him.

The New Civil Rights Movement breaks it down:

Reese had been free on $50,000 bail after being charged with attempted murder in 2013, when he was accused of hitting a man over the head with a gun and trying to shoot him, according to Reese has not yet been charged in connection with Hawkins’ death, and it’s unclear whether the teen’s sexual orientation was a motive for the murder.

Hawkins came out as bisexual in high school, according to BuzzFeed News, but later dropped out due to bullying, reported. He was weeks from earning his GED and planned to pursue a career in cosmetology.

“I know anybody who met him knows the person that he was, the bubbly personality he had,” Hawkins’ brother, Jacob, said at a candlelight vigil Wednesday night, according to

Video of the candlelight vigil is below.

We hope the family of Nicholas Hawkins gets the justice they deserve, and want to remind all of you to be safe out there.
