A $5,000 reward is also being offered to anyone with information about his death.

A graphic photo of the teen's body, which Trichell called "gut-wrenching," has been posted online showing Bobby in what appears to be a body bag, pulled down to reveal his head.

In the photo, a gash marks his hairline over his left eye, while the left side of his face and nose appear to be swollen and rubbed raw and parts of his lips appear to be missing, exposing his teeth.

The Daily Advertiser chose not to share the photo because it is extremely graphic. But Trichell's office shared it on Facebook to make obvious how heinous his death was.
