“Word has already gotten around and I’m just being bombarded with messages,” Nichols said in a video shared on 25.6. “And I have to let everyone know. But I’m making this video for a reason. Because I need your help. I’ve never asked you for anything, but I need your help with it. There are almost 7 million people following me. Someone must know something. Today would have been my little kid’s 19th birthday, but it was him [taken] from me last night.”
