Ophelia Nichols, known on the social media platform as Mama Tot under the user name @shoelover99, posted a video seeking help in finding the person responsible for killing her son Randon Lee in Prichard, Alabama on Friday, the day before his nineteenth birthday.

“I ain’t never ask y’all for anything, but I need your help with this. There’s almost 7 million people that follow me. Somebody’s gotta know something,” Nichols said in the video. As of Monday morning, more than 7.3 million people were following her on TikTok.

“I know they’re out there, in my town,” Nichols said of the culprit. “They’re out there. They’re out there, living and breathing when my son’s dead.”
