LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A family pleas for answers two years after half- brothers are murdered in Portland.
It's the second anniversary of 21-year-old Brandon Borders and his half brother 17-year-old Timothy O'Connor's deaths. To this day, it's unclear who did this.
"For someone to take them away like that is just terrible," said Timothy O'Connor- who lost two sons that night on October 28, 2009.
"Who would think that two children their age would have enemies like that or would want to harm them and kill them in that way is just terrible," said O'Connor. "There is no excuse for it, I can't begin to try to explain it or make any sense out of it."
Police say Borders and O'Connor were shot to death in their car in an alley near 22nd and St. Xavier. That's where family and friends gathered on Friday to remember their lives. Borders' mother, Tammy Borders, says there's not a day that goes by she doesn't think about that life changing phone call.
"You just relive it everyday, it doesn't ever go away," said Borders. "I feel like they deserve justice, I feel like anybody murdered deserves justice."
Louisville Metro Police Detective Jon Lesher says he refuses to give up on this case and believes there are people out there that saw what happened.
"It's an ongoing case, that has been worked every day, every month, every week, for the last two years and we will continue to work it until it is solved," said Lesher.
Until then, all this family can do is stay strong and hope that anyone with information will come forward.
"All we can hope and prayer for is that someone, someday, somewhere, somehow will answer for this," said O'Connor.
There is still no clear motive for these murders. If you have any information, police urge you to call 502-574-LMPD. You can remain anonymous.
