“I want closure. My family wants closure,” said Virgie Nelson, Jones’ mother.
Jones was shot and killed outside his home last June.
”We still work on it on a regular basis,” said Sgt. Calvin Grantham of the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department. “We’ve had very few leads, and we believe because people have been afraid to talk.”
The 46-year-old was a deacon at the Dwelling Place Christian church and was engaged to be married.
If you have any information about the shooting, you are asked to contact police.
