NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Two mothers have come together seeking justice after the father of their children was murdered last year. Police are still looking for the killers, and the women hope you can help them.
Michael Anthony Jones was killed late on a Thursday night in October. Police found his body in the laundry room of the house he was staying in the 2200 block of 14th Avenue North. Jones was shot several times.
"The suspects were seen running from that backyard of that residence through other yards toward Buchanan Street," said Billy Jackson with the Metro Nashville Police Department.
That's where the trail ends, and the mothers of his children have joined forces seeking justice.
"He has not only two by me. He has two other small kids out there, and I don't feel it's fair to them to have live knowing their daddy was murdered and the case is not solved," said a friend of the victim.
This weekend the mothers will pass out flyers seeking information about the case in the neighborhood where Jones was killed.
"According to witness statements there were voices heard. He was talking to someone almost like a small argument, and then they heard the shots fired," said Jackson.
Police said there's a possibility the killers may have rode in Jones' car to his home. They're hoping someone may have seen them together earlier on the night of the murder.
Later that week, Jones was supposed to go to the circus with one child and a championship football game with another.
