19-year-old TCC student killed in Orlando


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) – A 19-year-old student at Tallahassee Community College was killed in a hit-and-run in Orlando while trying to return to South Florida for Easter.

TCC confirmed to WCTV that Anthony Mejias was enrolled for the spring semester of 2021. According to a WSVN report, Mejias took a bus from Tallahassee to Pembroke Pines and lost his ID and phone while stopping in Orlando, preventing him from getting on the next bus.

The Florida Highway Patrol told WSVN that his body was found just over a mile from the bus stop on Saturday, April 3.

Mejias’ mother filed a missing persons report before he was clearly identified as a victim.

The hit-and-run suspect is still at large.

A GoFundMe page that raised money for Mejias’ funeral has raised more than $ 18,000.
