The Sims family says that many people still don’t know the man behind the headlines.
Toussaint Sims, who friends and family referred to as ‘Diamon,’ was 27-years-old when he was killed on Thursday in Moss Point. The details surrounding his death are still under investigation.
Those closest to Sims tell News 25 that he was a father and was close with his family. Lakeisha Hardmon, Sims’ great aunt, said, “He had a good heart. He had his flaws. I mean, we all do, no one is perfect. You show me a perfect person, I show you a lie. He had a lot of growing to do, but he still did not deserve to be done the way he was done.”
Princess Locke, Sims’ younger sister, said, “He always told me when he loved me and I always told him I love him and he told me ‘if I die, I still love you.’”
The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is working this case and we will keep you up to date as we learn more.
