“You're playing Russian Roulette with people's lives,” he said.

A representative with Genesee County Sheriff’s office, which is handling the investigation, told BuzzFeed News that officials were not available to comment on the case over the weekend. However, a sheriff's official previously told Fox 66 the incident was being investigated as a homicide.

“He was really loved, and this hurts our family a lot,” she added.

His step-mother, Jennifer Waskoski, told Fox 66 that White was “high-spirited” and “could always make you laugh.”

“I pray for their souls,” White's step-mother said of the accused rock throwers. “Because they obviously ain’t got one that they can do something this malicious.”
