JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Four families continue to look for answers on the second anniversary of a quadruple slaying in Murray Hill.

The shooting happened at a home off of Randolph Street. Derek Williams, Keshell Brown and her sister Keyonna Brown, along with Gontrell Hagans were killed in the shooting.

News4Jax spoke to Williams' aunt who says the family will get together at his grave for a balloon release and they are hopeful that after two years, someone will come forward.

"Whatever you know, talk. And. I know you have a conscience and I know it's probably eating at you. You took four lives. You destroyed four different families," Sabrina Johnson said.

Johnson said that she has not lost hope the person or people responsible for this shooting two years ago will be caught. She said that there is a little frustration as time goes on and nobody has come forward with enough information.

"It's still been painful, because we still don't have answers. For his kids, it's the worst ever, because all his daughter thinks about is her daddy," said Johnson.

The family still does not know why someone would want to harm Williams, who's described as a young father, who loved his daughter and two sons.

"The smallest details will help. I don't care how small, it may be insignificant to you, but it's significant to us. He's been robbed of the chance of walking down the aisle. He's been robbed of the chance of watching his boys play any type of sports," Johnson said.

Johnson says until there is an arrest, it will be hard for the family to find closure.

There was surveillance video from a nearby business that showed a car leaving the area during the time police believe the shooting happened. The person who recorded it said the car sped out quickly, but the video was dark and grainy.

If you have any information about this shooting, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS.
