Crime Stoppers - Clifton Young

Four days into the new year Jackson police were investigating the first homicide of 2008. Clifton Young's killer is still on the run, and law officers hope you can help.

David kenney has this week's Crime Stoppers report.

Euracia Young stated,  "There were neighbors coming to visit and they saw his front door open which is not normal for him."  On January 5th 2008, 45 year old Clifton Young was found murdered in his Jackson home. An autopsy revealed he died from a single gunshot wound to the back of the head.

After just spending the holiday together, his death came as a shock to his entire family.

 "He didn' t have that evil or mean spirit to hurt anyone making it real rough on the family, said Keith Young."

Euracia Young stated,  "It would mean a lot to us to know why, what was your purpose what was your reason, what would drive you to the point of taking someone's life away, that's somebody s child."

Jackson police detectives have searched for clues, interviewing neighbors and anyone who was in the area at the time, but have come up empty handed.

 "Just to have that individual off the streets not risking the chance of it happening to anyone else because this has changed our lives, stated Keith.

Euracia is asking the public to,  "Please help, please talk, please come forward- this would bring comfort to our hearts."
