On the day he was killed, the elder Strickland was on his way to catch a paratransit van ride to the dialysis facility at around 4 a.m., the senior, who sometimes walked with a cane, had just made it to the gangway of his home when he was brutally slain.

The younger Strickland reportedly took the money he had stolen from the steel mill worker of 30 years, who had only recently retired, and purchased a new pair of sneakers, a cell phone and tattoos.

According to neighbors, the teen, who actually lived with his grandfather, kept to himself, was not friendly and appeared to be “mysterious.”

Strickland is being held without bail and police are still searching for the other yet unnamed accomplice.
