Family demands Augusta night club be closed after death of relative

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Mary Fallen said while she can no longer see her son, she is trying to remember the good times.

"Rashad was a loving son, you know, I miss him so much, he'd come over, check on me, mom how you doing, he always would hug you," Fallen said.

Rashad Boynton was attacked in March in the parking lot of club Pure Platinum and died from his injuries soon after. 

His family now wants the Augusta commission to force the club to shut its doors.

"We just want justice for this, so no other family will have to go through what he have to go through," said Steffany Fallen-Elliott, Boynton's sister, who stood before the commission yesterday.
 
Authorities say Boynton was found on the ground bleeding the night of the incident. He was involved in a fight and slammed to the ground, then asked to leave the club.

His family said this was not in his character and this night club has had a history of problems.

"He just wanted to go out to have a good time," said Fallen-Elliott. "He was getting ready to graduate. He didn't bother anyone. He's a good person."

We have tried to contact the owners of Pure Platinum multiple times but they haven't responded.

Fallen says they've been in contact with the District Attorney's office and will not stop until justice has been served.
