Kennedy and Dollin were former teammates and close friends until TK departed from Baker. Kennedy also called out Andrew Reynolds on his Instagram video that he soon deleted.
TK, who was charged with 1st-degree murder and also facing life behind bars, was enraged for no apparent reason, prosecutors revealed.
Prosecutors say that on July 27, at around 11:05 a.m., Kennedy, his ex-girlfriend, and Kassahun checked out of a Comfort Suites Motel in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, and began walking toward Kennedy's ex's car but, while on the walk, officials say Kennedy got upset for "no apparent reason."
According to prosecutors, Kassahun tried to calm the former Baker skateboards pro down but, that's when TK allegedly punched Kassahun in the face, causing him to fall to the ground and strike his head on the pavement.
Officials say Kennedy then kicked Kassahun in the torso before leaving the area in his ex's car.
As we previously reported, Kassahun passed away four days later from his injuries. A GoFundMe was launched to give the Kassahun's family a financial cushion during this difficult time as well as the months and years to come.
