High School Cheerleader Charged For Helping Boyfriend Torture And Kill Homeless Man


On Thursday, a sobbing 18-year-old Hailey Suder pleaded not guilty to two felony counts of being an accessory after the fact of the murder of 50-year-old homeless man, George Lowery.

According to People Magazine, the San Diego-area high school cheerleader faces over three years in prison if she is convicted for her role in the torture and murder of Lowery. NBC 7 reported that Suder was allegedly present on April 24 when Lowery was beaten by her boyfriend Austin Mostrong, 20, and his brother Preston Mostrong, 19 and then left for bed in the riverside homeless encampment in which Lowery and his wife, Penny, lived. Penny discovered her unconscious husband in the encampment, and he was rushed to the hospital where he passed away five days later.


Investigators don’t believe that Suder participated directly with the attack, but they believe that she helped the brothers flee the scene.

A GoFundMe page, set up to cover Lowery’s memorial expenses and support his widow, offered additional details of his attack. Lowery’s daughter, Katey Torres, wrote that Lowery was “brutally beaten, bloody, tied up, face down, and unconscious. Covered up to die.”

The Daily Beast discovered what may have motivated the senseless murder, and it’s horrifying. Apparently, the Mostrong brothers enjoyed hunting homeless people with paintball guns and, one day, Lowery defended their victims by wrestling the paintball gun away from one of the brothers. Four days later, the brothers, with Suder in tow, allegedly sought revenge by hog-tying Lowery and severely beating him before leaving him for dead.


From The Daily Beast:

Why Austin Mostrong was walking free to begin with is hard to comprehend. The elder Mostrong brother had been busted on April 20 for another assault charge, although details of that arrest remain murky.

A San Diego District Attorney spokeswoman refused to provide The Daily Beast with the time or location of the earlier assault incident that involved two male victims.

One thing is certain: Mostrong copped a guilty plea to three misdemeanors and skated out of court, only on the hook to serve three years’ probation and to pay a fine and complete 10 hours of community service.

The Mostrong brothers pleaded not guilty in May and are held on $3 million bail.
