LOUISIVLLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville mother is still looking for answers after her son was shot and killed in Louisville's Park Hill neighborhood almost a year ago. Wednesday will mark the one year anniversary of Jamel Dunn's death. Dunn's murder is still under investigation by Louisville Metro Police. A year later, still no arrest in his case.

Dunn's mother says she's planning a vigil for Wednesday to remember her son.

"This is his shirt and I sleep with it every single night, this puts me to sleep," said Dunn's mother Tammie Kendricks.

Kendricks home is filled with pictures of Dunn. He was her youngest child. Dunn was 18 when he was shot and killed in the middle of the street on Burnett Avenue.  October 10th will mark one year since he died.

"He's here but, he's not here in the flesh but, here in the spirit," said Kendricks.

Dunn's spirit is also being carried on by his son, who he never had the chance to meet. Jamel Dunn Jr., was born just two days after his father was laid to rest. Kendricks says she sees so much of her son in her grandson.

"We got someone here that looks just like him, act just like him, walk just like him, just like his daddy," said Kendricks.

Kendricks says although a year has gone by, the heartache still surrounds her. She hopes that whoever killed her son, will come forward.

"You are gonna have to face the consequences, you are gonna have to turn yourself in..it's gonna eat you up," said Kendricks.

If you have any information on Dunn's death call (502) 574-LMPD. Dunn's vigil will be held Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Garden of Angels which is located at Wilson and Woodland Avenues.
