FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Some Flip This City members think they are heading in the right direction.

It's coming on two years since Kandell White's son was murdered.

She said justice is not served.

"My son is Donte white. He was shot May 18, 2016. He has two eye witnesses, and they do nothing," White said.

The group met last Thursday to ask for the resignation of Karen Richards from her position as a prosecuting attorney.

Saturday they met again, but this time they tell WFFT they had an unexpected visitor.

"Today was more on why to elaborate on why we did that, and I feel like we did get that point across today, obviously the prosecutors were here for a reason," Nasim Walker said.

The more people they reach, the more progress they hope to make.

"I know a lot of people don't understand. They think that this is a group of whining mothers who are unhappy with the answers that they are getting from the prosecutor, but the misconception is that they're not getting any answers from the prosecutor," Walker said.

White said the prosecutors have everything they need, but she can't understand why things are the way they are.

The Chief Deputy Prosecutor said going to the forum gives more insight.

"I want the person who shot my son convicted. I want him in jail," she said.

Michael MacAlexander, the Chief Deputy Prosecutor, said although they can't discuss specifics for ethical reasons regarding confidentiality, he hopes to be invited back so they can work together.

"We can still listen and certainly if something was missed, we are more than willing to prosecute these cases," he said.
