Family offers $10000 reward five years after unsolved murder of 21-year-old man and his dog

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) –  With signs in hand that read “This could be your loved one,” family and friends asked drivers along New Cut Road to help find justice for Bryan Lewis, five years after his murder.

“Bryan was amazing. He was quiet. He was shy. He was innocent. He loved everybody,” Rhonda Mars, Lewis’ mother, said.

Aside from the tragedy itself, the not knowing “why” can be the hardest part.

“Unless you’re going through it, there’s not a feeling like it,” Pam Lewis, Bryan Lewis’ aunt, said.

“Pure hell, pure hell. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about Bryan,” Mars said.  

In 2012, the 21-year-old was staying at his mother’s house near Taylor Boulevard and Bicknell Avenue when someone broke in, shooting him multiple times before also killing his dog Champ, who tried to protect him. Police have said Lewis was likely not the intended target.

“I cry every day. There’s times I can’t breathe

Family of unsolved murder victim releases balloons on his birthday

On Sunday, the family of Isaac Orosco, a young man who was shot and killed last July, released balloons on what would’ve been his 22nd birthday. His murder remains unsolved.

Family keeps hope after 7 years of family member’s unsolved murder

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Seven years ago to the day, 32-year-old Stephan Wilson was found dead in his apartment on Del Monico Drive in Colorado Springs.

Seven years, and still no answers for the Wilson family.

“It doesn’t get any better,” Stephan’s mom, Leslie Smith, said. “It’s been seven years, and it feels just like it was yesterday.”

The Wilson family honors his life every year at Prospect Lake on the anniversary of his murder, and this year was no different.

“We just have no closure,” Leslie said.

“We, as a family, we stick together,” Stephan’s cousin, Tony, said. “We’re not a big family, we’re a small family, but we love each other.”

Stephan’s sister Michelle said she misses his big smile, his personality, and his humor. His mom, Leslie,
