TikTok Fans Have ‘Unhealthy Obsession’ With Cameron Herrin Who Killed An Ohio Mother & Her Young Daughter

Cameron Herrin murdered a woman and her daughter in his Ford Mustang on Bayshore Boulevard in 2018, while racing a buddy.

Cameron Herrin was convicted of the murders of Jessica Reisinger-Raubenolt and her one-year-old daughter Lillia Raubenolt in April.

Despite the fact that Cameron has been convicted of a crime, some individuals are captivated with him.

Cameron's mother claimed that she discovered a mysterious Tiktok who is smitten with her son.

Herrin was 18 years old when he struck the mother and daughter while driving a Mustang he'd received two days previously for his high school graduation.

Herrin and his Nissan-driving companion John Barrineau appeared to be racing on Bayshore Boulevard in Tampa, according to witnesses.

Prosecutors presented evidence that the Mustang had reached speeds of more than 100 mph (160 kph) just before the collision, then quickly decelerated to 30 and 40 mph (48 and 64 kph) when it collided.

Herrin, now 21, has amassed a considerable online following in the years since his imprisonment, particularly on TikTok, where his account has over two million followers.

Several social media platforms were inundated with posts with the hashtag JutsiceForCameron, many of which included footage from his incarceration.

In numerous of the clips, Herrin is labeled as "innocent" or "too cute" to go to jail, with sad and heart emoticons.

Many of the posts, which are written in a combination of English and Arabic, argue that Herrin's sentence of 24 years is excessive and unreasonable.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, the 13th Circuit Court and the Florida Department of Corrections' Facebook pages were inundated with identical posts following the penalty.

Herrin does not have any TikTok videos on his official account. Films about Herrin have been viewed 1.7 billion times on YouTube, according to the New York Times.

Following that, the young man's mother lambasted some of the fans, telling the outlet that it was "almost like an addiction, an unhealthy relationship."

The Twitter activity is a mix of real support for the young man and questionable activity typical of Middle Eastern digital marketing organizations, according to Shelby Grossman of the Stanford Internet Observatory.

According to the New York Times, Twitter banned over 900 accounts that posted about Herrin for violating the company's platform limitations, resulting in the deletion of roughly 90,000 of Herrin's 100,000 tweets.
