NEWPORT NEWS, Virginia (WAVY) -- On April 30, 2013, Kerry Seawright got the devastating news her son, Raymond Seawright, was dead.
"I just feel so much pain inside," Seawright said. "It's unbearable at times for me."
It's been weeks without an arrest.
"Nothing on this earth is worth someone's life," said Seawright's cousin, Nicole Giddings. "We just want to know, 'why did you have to kill him of all things?'"
Newport News police found 22 year-old Raymond lying in the hallway of a boarding house on Chestnut Avenue in Newport News. His mother said he was there with a friend, but she doesn't know much else about why her son was killed.
"We just appreciate someone give some leads to authorities so this part of the nightmare can be over," said Giddings. "And we can try to put our lives back together and go on."
