Name: Rashard Pierce.
Died: November 18, 2017.
Age at death: 24.
Cause of death: Homicide (Pushed into traffic; fatally hit by vehicle).
Location: Miami, Florida, USA.
Rashard grew up with autism. When he was diagnosed with glaucoma and started losing his vision, he began work at Goodwill.
Rashard had taken the bus on his way home, and had just gotten off the bus, when someone pushed him deliberately into traffic and in front of a passing car. Rashard’s low vision would have made it very difficult for him to defend himself against this attack. The driver was unable to stop before he hit Rashard, who died of his injuries.
The killer has not yet been caught. Police are offering a $3,000 reward for information leading to the killer.
