Families Hope Clues in Murder Cases Will Come to Light
by Amanda Hara
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Members of Partner in the Struggle headed to downtown Nashville Wednesday to pass fliers in hopes of solving loved ones' murders.
Wednesday continued Unsolved Murder Week for the group. Volunteers expected to hit the streets at 3 p.m.
Handouts will also be passed out Thursday afternoon on Jefferson Street at 3 p.m.
On Sunday family and friends kicked off the first ever Unsolved Murder Week.
More than a dozen families, all part of the group called Partners in the Struggle, spent their Sunday evening reliving their pain and drawing from it motivation to resolve the crime.
Sarah Gill has waited six months for clues in the shooting death of her son Andre'us Taylor. He was shot in broad daylight while leaving a graduation at TSU.
"I know there was over 2,000 people there so somebody saw what happened," Gill said.
"Somebody knows something I have no question about that it's time for us as individuals to step up and say hey we can help and we will help," said Earl Jordan, CEO of Partners in the Struggle and founder of Unsolved Murder Week.
In spite of all their grief, the victims have been holding out hope that little piece of information will soon come to light.
The group hopes to make Unsolved Murder Week a national event.
