The caller told the radio hosts, "They jumped him, tied him up.Everyone was like throwing eggs and stuff at him and burning him with cigarettes and just giving this guy back what he's been giving to us for all those years." He goes on to say, "And we're all standing there, because I just kind of was standing back with my friend watching all this stuff going on and laughing. Then at the end of it theyHe was all tied up they pushed him off the pier into the water."

Phoenix Police say they are in touch with KISS FM who are cooperating with detectives with this investigation.
