Amos was beaten at a homeless shelter on 22nd May, suffering trauma including facial fractures, multiple blunt force injuries to his face and head, and a number of broken ribs. He died in hospital a week later.

Court records obtained by the Burlington Free Press show that Beede reported to the police that he received threats in the days before he was attacked. The documents also provide details of the assault, which investigators describe as lasting two to three minutes.

"Stop! Stop!" Beede yelled at his attackers, according to the documents.

"Shut up," one of them responded.

Five people were subsequently charged with murder. In November 2017 Myia Barber pled guilty to involuntary manslaughter as part of a deal struck with the prosecution. She was sentenced to a minimum of ten years in state prison.
