“They had shots, were flirty, and demanded a waiter’s number,” staff told the reporter.

The group was spotted at the bar, reported to be Sting Ray’s by the New York Post, as FBI, GBI, and local investigators ended their first day of searching the landfill. Chatham County Police said earlier this month they believed Quinton was dead and named his mother as the prime suspect in his death, as CrimeOnline previously reported.

Leilani Simon reported her son missing shortly after 9:30 a.m. on October 5, saying that her boyfriend was the last to see him at about 6 a.m. that morning. Later, a babysitter who regularly watched Quinton and his 3-year-old brother said that Leilani Simon had texted her before 6 that morning to say she wasn’t needed to babysit that day.

Leilani, her boyfriend, and her three children lived at the home of her mother, Billie Jo Howell, who had legal custody of Quinton and the 3-year-old and had tried to evict her daughter and boyfriend in September.

Police now believe Leilani is responsible for Quinton’s death and that the boy’s remains were put into a “specific dumpster at a specific location” and then dumped into the landfill.

A Sting Ray’s server told the Post that the Leilani, Howell, and friends stayed at the bar “for a long time, for hours” and “were drinking Patron shots in the deck area, being loud and laughing.”

“They were having a great time like they didn’t have a care in the world,” the server said. ” … It’s almost like they were trying to draw attention to themselves.”


WSAV — and some YouTube livestreamers — found Howell leaving the Sandcastle Inn across the street from Sting Ray’s Wednesday morning. The reporter said Howell told Tybee Island police that he was “starting to annoy” her.
