Friends and family of homicide victim - Andre Oliver-Kenney - saying "goodbye" tonight at the 23-year-old's wake. And Eyewitness News spoke again with grieving mother Dawn Kenney-Brown, who we first introduced you to earlier this week.
"This is a mother's worst nightmare to have to bury your child...they were supposed to be burying me," said Dawn Kenney-Brown.
Still in disbelief that her son is no longer on this earth, she can only repeat what she's been saying since his death.
"I'm begging y'all tell what y'all saw my son was a god kid and y'all know that. Dre didn't bother nobody, Dre didn't bother nobody, he loved everybody he was happy and y'all know that somebody tell something," she said.
As the days go by, instead of losing hope, she's more and more confidant that her pleas will be answered.
"This will not be an unsolved murder, no it will not be an unsolved murder, it will not be a cold case, no, not my child, not mine," she said.
Her church, she says, has been the family's support-system throughout this tragedy.
"We have endured so much and so many murders in this city and it's just time now for us now to take another look at it and redefine our normal, it is not normal to kill the Bible said thou shall not kill," said Apostle Willie Steele.
Dawn says police tell her people have now been coming forward with information, and though she doesn't know exactly what that means, it's enough to keep her going.
"I have faith in the police department, I have faith in God, God told me that they will be apprehended," she said.
