FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- Nineteen-year-old Jalen Lindsey's family is mourning.
"If you don't feel comfortable talking to the police, you can contact his mother. You can contact his auntie. Please contact somebody. Speak up. You love Jalen. Let the world know you loved him, and we want to get justice for him," his cousin Mary Pope said.
That was the message Friday evening as friends and family attended a balloon release at Northside Park.
They describe him as loving, funny, and generous.
Zekual Crothers is trying to carry on without someone who was like a brother to him.
"I wish I could hear his voice one more time. I want him standing right next to me here right now. I want him back. That's all I want," Crothers said.
With so many people coming out and showing support for the family, Tanesha Lindsey, Jalen's mother, said it means a lot, but she wants nothing more than justice for her baby boy.
"Just remember Jalen as my special baby, my goofy kid, my dependable, reliable, so handsome, helpful child. He was always there for any and everybody. He'd do anything for anybody if he could. He was well-loved. He loved many," she said.
Anyone with any information on a potential suspect is asked to contact Fort Wayne police detectives at (260) 427-1201 or Crime Stoppers at (260) 436-STOP.
