Robert “Bobby” Schmidt Bio – Robert “Bobby” Schmidt Wiki
Robert “Bobby” Schmidt was found on Tuesday near the 13500 block of Navajo Road. When authorities arrived, Schmidt was found with “traumatic injuries” and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Robert “Bobby” Schmidt was 16 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
The last time his family saw 16-year-old Robert “Bobby” Schmidt Jr. was Monday night when his mother dropped him off to skate at James Woody Park in Apple Valley.
The following day, a local worker found the teen’s body in a dirt field just north of the park and behind a preschool playground.
Apple Valley Sheriff’s Station officials, who investigated the incident, said Schmidt had suffered traumatic injuries to his body and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Elizabeth Schmidt worked from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., so it wasn’t until early Tuesday morning that she discovered that her son hadn’t come home, she said.
She told NBCLA that her son was “An amazing boy. Loving, caring. He was an angel in my eyes. He was everything. Everything.”
In a social media post, Aliyah Villalobos said her nephew Bobby was a good kid who never got in trouble.
“He was very chill, laid back, and just liked to be around family and vibe with people who understood him,” said Villalobos, who created a GoFundMe. “He was so loving and goofy in his way. Anyone who knew Bobby loved him and appreciated his friendship and love.”
Bobby was the firstborn child and first grandchild. He leaves behind his parents and four younger sisters, Villalobos said.
A vigil was held Wednesday night for the teenager.
The teen’s mother said her son’s friend told her that on Monday, the two went to the Dollar General store on Navajo Road near the park. Her son’s friend went home after another friend arrived.
On Tuesday, Apple Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies responded to the report of a man down in the 13500 block of Navajo Road.
The area includes an empty field and easement behind the Navajo Center and near a playground of a head start preschool. The centre is across the street from Dollar General.
Upon arrival, deputies found and identified the teen, who authorities said suffered traumatic injuries to his body and was pronounced dead at the scene.
