BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A very solemn ceremony was held Tuesday at Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC) to remember Tyrin Carter and Deshon Murphy.
The two BRCC students died in a car crash last week in Baton Rouge. Staff and classmates attached messages to balloons before releasing them. One of Carter’s teachers says he still has a hard time believing the news.
“He was someone that I knew, and I cared about him. And when I saw that, it almost didn’t seem real. And then I saw his picture and I didn’t want to believe it. And I miss him,” said Cole Connelly, an English teacher at BRCC.
We’re told Carter always showed he cared about getting a good education.
