LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Only two of Louisville's last nine homicides have been solved.

Those nine homicides include Cameron Pugh, 18, who was shot to death on Hancock Street three weeks ago along with Larry Brewer, 22.

Pugh’s mother, Angela Williams, and his brother, Merkell Williams, visit his grave site every day.

"I just want to know what happened to my son,” Angela Williams said. "Every day feels like a month for me.”

 "I have my little spot over there where I cry,” Merkell Williams said. “I talk to him and tell him I love him hoping that he'll talk to me."

Thursday, they were joined by a dozen others, including Pugh's young daughter, in a call for answers.

"He loved this daughter,” Angela Williams said. “He loved her so much, and he never got the chance to show her that.”

Each day, the family feels further from justice.

“Detectives reassured me that this is the only case that they're working, but it's like if you're doing this all day, why don't you have any answers,” Angela Williams said.

Louisville Metro Police Department spokesman Phil Russell couldn’t comment on specifics but said police need help from witnesses and the community.

“We are in many ways needing tips and information,” Russell said. "We recognize a need to build trust and understanding in those communities because that's really what hinders us in a lot of ways in cooperation."

Before the family can heal, they need closure.

"I just want justice for my brother,” Merkell Williams said.

Anyone with information in any of the cases is asked to call the anonymous police tip line at (502) 574-LMPD.
