Remembering Haines Holloway-Lilliston

By Denise Dantzler

BALTIMORE, Md- In the early morning hours of July 25, Haines Holloway- Lilliston, 27, was heading home after work on his motorcycle. Baltimore City police officer Timothy Beall, 31, chased Holloway-Lilliston from Northern Parkway, to 83 East to the 695 southbound ramp at Dulaney Valley Road.   Beall’s police cruiser crashed into Holloway-Lilliston’s 2002 Suzuki GSX 600 and ejected him from the motorcycle.  Holloway-Lilliston was pronounced dead at the scene.

“I miss him everyday,” Jeff Snow, 24, says, “It is really weird not having him here. It is like a missing piece of a puzzle…”

Since the day Snow and Holloway – Lilliston, met in 2005 at Towson University during football camp, they were inseparable.  It was a friendship that would last beyond their time at school.  The two were roommates throughout college and after graduation.

When the two had breakfast at IHOP together on July 24, Snow didn’t know that would be the last time he would see his friend.

According to Baltimore City Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, Beall’s pursuit was along an interstate outside the department’s jurisdiction and his superiors had several times ordered him to stop.

No charges have been filed and the crash is being investigated internally. The completed investigation will be forwarded to the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office for review.  Beall has been suspended with pay.

Below is a video I recorded of Jeff Snow reflecting on Haines Holloway-Lilliston.
