According to the report by Deputy Michael Sevarns, Tammy Rae Phipps of Hollow Rock received a text from Tilton asking for money to buy cigarettes, and when Phipps texted that she did not have any money, Tilton texted that he was going to slit her throat. Phipps then left her residence and started walking to a neighbor’s house. She got as far as Hometown Market when Tilton came up behind her and grabbed her by the hair. Phipps got free after kicking Tilton in the knee and ran to the front door of the store and started knocking. Tilton grabbed Phipps again and said he was going to kill her. Seeing what was happening, the store owner grabbed a gun, came to the door, and pointed the gun at Tilton, who then ran off toward the railroad tracks.
