Family of man killed outside bar asks public for help

Posted: Updated:
Toledo, OH -

Toledo police say a man died after an alleged assault. It happened around 3 a.m. Saturday morning outside of Malibu's bar on W. Alexis Road.

The victim, 27-year-old Robert Turner Jr., was found on the ground and pronounced dead at the scene.

Toledo Police and Fire EMS squads both responded and a section of W. Alexis surrounding the bar was closed off with crime tape for hours.

More than 50 friends and family of Turner came together just feet from where he was beaten to death for a vigil Saturday night.

"Just one hit, bam, and three kicks in the head and he's gone," says Linda Turner, Robert's mother.

"He's my only brother, my only sibling, he had the biggest heart in the world," says Brittany Turner.

Turner's family says they are shocked and left with so many questions. They say according to some witnesses, Turner was inside the bar alone when someone started an argument.

His sister says Turner was knocked out unconscious and the suspects kept on hitting him. Police detectives are not releasing many details, and the lack of credible witnesses has the family pleading for anyone with information to come forward.

They are looking for closure so their loved one can finally rest in peace.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to call the Toledo Police Detective Bureau at 419-245-3142 or Crime Stopper at 419-255-1111. You can remain anonymous.
