Feud ends with brutal beating

March 16, 2006

Dawson - A Dawson man dies after being beaten with a large stick. Police say 23 year old Alfonzo Wright was attacked early Thursday morning outside a Dawson house.

Cynthia Anthony is still shaken up after a sleepless night.

"I'm tired of crying," said Anthony. "I'm upset about what happened to that guy, I'm upset about how it happened."

Anthony says her friend was talking to Alfonzo Wright outside her Orange Street home around 1:00AM Thursday morning, when she heard screaming.

"That's when I hurried up, got the corner and looked. I saw a guy laying on porch."

Anthony says Wright was lying in a pool of blood on the front stoop.

"He was just laying there, moaning and groaning."

Anthony saw another man, who she didn't know, walking away from the house with a long object in his hand.

"I said 'Wait, wait, wait. Who are you and why did you do that?' But he just kept on going up the road."

GBI agents say that man is 25 year old Tyrell Sims. Agents says Sims and Wright had gotten into a fight last year. They say Sims was at a nearby house when he saw Wright, came outside and attacked him with a big oak stick.

Anthony said, "That's the most blood I've ever seen in my life."

Sims turned himself into the Dawson Police Department Thursday morning around 11:00, and was booked into the Terrell County Jail. He charged with murder.

Wright suffered severe brain damage and died at Phoebe Putney around 1:00PM Thursday.
