Real Name: Travis James Ainsworth
Nicknames: T.J. Ainsworth
Location: Canton, Texas
Date: June 2, 2008
Details: Sixteen-year-old T.J. Ainsworth was at a lake with friends in Canton, Texas, on the night of June 2, 2008. At around midnight, he and his friends left and they dropped him off at a nearby Wal-Mart. Somewhere between 1:15 and 2:00am, he was struck by an unidentified vehicle. A motorist soon found him severly injured but conscious, saying, "Why did they do this to me?" and "Don't let them hurt me anymore." He died shortly after being taken to the hospital. Authorities believe that he was most likely struck by an 18-wheeler, but his family wants anyone with any information to come forward to explain what happened to him.
