Just a block away from Evanston Township High School a small legion of friends and family gathered to find new clues into the shooting death of 19-year-old Justin Murray November 29th.
“He was in front of his grandmother’s house with some of his friends and family,” said Murray’s mother Carolyn, who was front and center Saturday, handing out flyers.
Volunteers handed out hundreds of them, asking for tips to find Justin’s killer. Cook County Crime Stoppers is behind this push, offering up to a thousand dollar reward for information, “Cause you never know that little piece that puts the puzze together for the detectives,” said George Modade of the Crime Stoppers.
Though Evanston police have combed through several leads, the gunman who shot Justin remains on the loose. Carolyn, who’s worked for seven years to stop gun violence in Evanston, wants her son’s killer caught, “I’m hoping someone calls and gives a tip. I’m hoping that someone ends this restlessness that i have not knowing and not having the crime solved… It’s one thing to bury my son, but i should not have to not know what happened to him. ”
