2 Volusia teens arrested in homeless man's death

The suspects said they beat the man because they were bored, police report.

Read the disturbing details HERE.

It's interesting to note the age difference here an, 18 year old male hanging with a 14 year old male, rather unusual unless it's a gang! How many 18 year old males do you know that have a club house? What's really sad here is the adults making excuses for the behavior acting as apologists for these thugs. How much do you want to bet one of these kids has a DVD of Bum Fights at home?

Spurgeon's aunt Tricia Elliott said her nephew often gets in fights but only to stick up for himself. Family members speculated whether the homeless man had done something to provoke the attack.


What could a homeless person do that would justify an attack like this?

The explanation that the suspects were just looking for something to do is not a surprise, said Deborah Day, a Winter Park forensic psychologist.

Typically, an instance such as this "isn't premeditated and thought out before it starts," Day said. "Then it becomes almost a game."

Day compared attacking a vulnerable group such as the homeless to a group of people torturing a defenseless animal.

"It's not that they were out looking to hurt someone, but they had spare time," Day said.


The poor children were bored! If only they had a good after school program unfortunate events like this could be avoided.

"I don't know what happened or what has been done, but this is not him," suspect's father Jeffery Spurgeon Sr. said. "I think it was more of a I want to look big in front of my friends kind of thing."

Spurgeon said his son and Scamahorn were not acting alone in the beating death.


Hey Daddy, you're part of the problem!

Accused teens scared neighbors
The pair, arrested in a homeless man's fatal beating, are called troublemakers.


Several children in Scamahorn's neighborhood said they stayed away from the teen because he was always getting in trouble. And parents forbade their children from going near his house. One mom said she sent her 15-year-old son to live with a relative for the summer to get him away from Scamahorn and his crowd.

The parents obviously have no clue who their son is if they think he is without fault. Yes Pat, they are absolutely part of the problem. If everyone else in the neighborhood knew he was trouble, why didn't the parents take responsibility for their children and seek help?

Just thinking of being beaten to death, a VERY slow and VERY painful, cruel, and agonizing death, feeling helpless to defend yourself, just excruciating.....it found some of that compassion in me that I thought was gone because we hear about death and destruction so much in the news. But this troubled me greatly.

Homeless people just want to be left alone. I pray that this one of the "least of God's people" is now "one of the first".

none of ya'll kno the boys who killed him. do not say ne thing about them untill u actually kno them. i kno them so i can say stuff. and they are not bad guys. they are really nice and never do anything like this. the homeless man provoked them and one specific person actually killed the man, not all of them. they should not be hung by their balls or under a sunken ship. so shut up. and obviously how can parents not have a clue of who their son is, ur stupid for saying that. they do. just because the neighbors say different dont mean anything. no one needs to talk crap unless you actually know the boys. so untill then keep your mouths shut.

When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.
