“In the wake of his murder, the family asks that we remember Timothy not as a statistic (or as) one more young black male dead by reason of senseless violence, but as an intelligent, kind, talented, funny and spiritually centered young man,” the family’s statement said.
The family also asked the community to pray that the killer might be found swiftly and be brought to justice.
The suspect is described as a black male with medium skin tone standing approximately 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall and weighing about 160 to 170 pounds.
The suspect was said to be well groomed and was wearing a dark-colored baseball cap, a dark-colored shirt with the word “SECURITY” in white letters on its front, a dark-colored jacket that was slightly longer than waist length and dark-colored “cargo” style pants.
The suspect fled the scene in a medium-size burgundy car of unknown make.
Funeral services for Barnwell are still incomplete, but have been tentatively set for Wednesday at the Church of the Nativity.
