A history of friends & trouble

Talim Ruffin was found dead in Ellenwood. He was shot twice, wrapped in a blue blanket and garbage bags, and decomposing in the trunk of his own, burgundy-colored, 2000 Pontiac Bonneville. The car was abandoned in an unfinished housing development, where the construction had stalled, according to the Clayton County Police...

While police say they don't have any leads, Ruffin's mother, Iris Pinkie Ruffin, said her son had a history of getting into trouble, because he was with the wrong crowd.

"It was somebody he knows," she speculated. "Somebody he knows, definitely. I've probably hugged the guy who did it."
