Four years following the murder of David Nathaniel James, his mother Veronica James still mourns his death nightly because David’s murder remains unsolved.
Mrs James, who yearns for closure, is appealing to assist police in solving her son’s murder which happened days before Christmas Day back in 2015.
“I am humbly requesting that anyone with information that can assist in solving my son’s murder to please come forward to the police with that information so that it could bring some closure to the entire family. I thank you the public in advance for any assistance you could provide in this investigation,” she pleaded.
David, who was known to many as ‘Bushman’ was only 28 years old when he was gunned down at his Free Bottom residence around 9:30 pm on December 7, 2015.
“A night has not passed since I have not wept over my son’s untimely passing and the fact that his case remains unsolved which has not brought me any form of closure,” Mrs James added.
