Dozens of Rashaud’s family and close friends gathered at his gravesite to remember his life.

“This day last year Rashaud was so happy to graduate, and he was happy to let all his friends know he made it,” said Janice Fields, Rashaud’s mom.

His family still looking for closure and asking the community to say something.

“I need someone to come up and say something because everything you do it affects someone else. So you’re affecting other family members that you’re not even aware of,” a family member said.

Janice Fields left a message for the person responsible.

“If you didn’t mean to, turn yourself in. I forgive you. I promise I forgive you. Because I heard you didn’t mean to do it,” she said.

There is still a $13,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest.
