The TikTok star’s son was murdered and now she wants answers

Ophelia Nichols, the victim’s mother, told WKRG that her son was shot dead at a gas station before driving down the road to another gas station, where he was later found dead.

Ophelia has seven million followers on TikTok and is urging her fans to help find his killer who remains at large.

In one video, she said, “I’ve never asked you for anything, but I need your help to do it.”

“He was just 18 years old. That’s the best part of a person’s life and I know they’re out there in my town. They are out there.”

Ophelia spoke to NBC12 about how difficult it is to do nothing and try to trust the police.

“You need to sit back and hope and pray that they will do what needs to be done to put the person or people who did this to my young child behind bars. You have no choice but to sit here and wait,” she said.

Lee would have turned 19 on Saturday, leaving Nicholas to grieve what could have been.

“I spoke to him yesterday morning around 10 to tell him I have his money for his birthday. He was looking forward to it. Just hanging out with his friends and girlfriend. His family was his life,” Nichols told NBC12.

Deeply heartbroken and upset by the death of her son, Ophelia now wants justice.

“I have this hatred in my heart that I don’t recognize. Because I’ve never felt hatred for anyone,” she said.

It’s unclear what led to the shooting, but Nichols says investigators told her they were following leads.

Nichols said her son is an organ donor and will live on even in death to help others, according to NBC12.
