‘It doesn’t feel real’: Family of murdered Prichard man left with unanswered questions

Mobile County

PRICHARD, Ala. (WKRG) — The family of 24-year-old Joe Johnson reflects on when they heard the news that he was shot and killed multiple times, this past Sunday.

His girlfriend Johntayvia Stallworth says it is still so surreal.

“It felt like I was dreaming. It still feel like a dream, it don’t feel real,” Stallworth said.

Stallworth describes her boyfriend as someone who would give you the clothes off his back.

“He was a good person. He was a giver,” Stallworth said. “He did for his kids… he was an outstanding daddy.
Like, anything that you ask for he’s going to make sure that it happen.”

According to Prichard Police, there is very little information available.

There are also no suspects at this time.

Johnson’s mother Marlissa Davis is urging those who may have any information to come forward with any information they may have.

“Lil Joe was there for a lot of yall,” Davis said. “If he was your boy when he was alive, let him
be your boy now because if the shoe was on the other foot y’all know Joe would be doing everything
in his power to help.”

In the meantime, this broken family is just trying to pick up the pieces.

“If yall know anything pertaining to this situation please reach out and let us know. Please —
because any small thing can help,” Stallworth said.

A vigil is planned for Johnson on Thursday, Oct 14, at 6:30 p.m. on Wilson Avenue near Big White Wings. If you would like to help the family, you can send them money through CashApp ($tokoyooo).
