8-year-old Launches Online Business in Honor of Father

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- An 8-year-old boy takes the title of CEO today to keep his dad's name alive.

Nearly one year after Loren Robinson's murder, Little Rock police continue to search for the killer.

KARK 4's Price Mckeon met with Arkansas' newest, and maybe youngest, boss as he declares victory over violence.

Kylan Robinson shows off his hover board, then the big Michael Jordan fan shoots imaginary hoops.

And though he may seem like most 8-year-olds, there is something that sets him apart, telling us that he's, "...starting a business and selling bow ties. I'm mainly selling bow ties."

Time hasn't faded Kylan's last memories from last summer before his father Loren Robinson was shot and killed on stardust trail, saying, "I remember like it was today [...] when we road our bikes up and down the street and around the neighborhood."

His dad's little rock murder case remains unsolved.

As Tennika Stokes, his mother, put it, "Its disturbing to know that your child knows that whoever took his fathers life is still out here walking around..."

While Kylan plays outside, she describes his fascination with fashion, "It catches his eye. I think he got that niche from his dad."

So in honor of his dad on Father's Day 2018, this Little Rock kid launched his online bow tie business, adding, "Everybody forgot his name, so im going to bring his name back alive."

Manager mom's listening to the young entrepreneur, but after the meeting, the boss is back to being a kid.
