According to the autopsy report, he was shot 17 times in his head and body by 9mm slugs. Emmo Jones told the police that Ragtopp Spiff wanted Bobby to deliver guns to gang members, but the boy refused, so Spiff murdered him and hid the body in a dumpster, near the spot where the body of Bob Hickman was found. Based on Emmo's testimony, Spiff was arrested for the murder.
Bobby's murder was not connected to the murder of Bob Hickman, although both bodies were found in the same alley. Bobby is the only victim in the game who was not killed by the serial murderer.
