Family holds a balloon release for man killed 23 years ago

Zemether Scroggins was killed more than two decades ago and today his life was celebrated by friends and family with a balloon release on the 800 block of Duncan street where he was killed.

His older sister Marie Scroggins organized the event, and drove from Abilene to be with the family. She says that it does not matter how long its been they just want to have closure.

"It marks 23 years since somebody killed my little brother and we are here today because we are hoping and praying and standing in faith and ready for justice to be served because its still an unsolved murder, a cold case, and our hearts are still troubled and we are ready to have some closure. "said Marie Scroggins.

Both sisters are optimistic that one day they will get justice.

“Living in this little town that we live in I know somebody knows something and we just want justice for my brother Zemether Scroggins.” Ladonna Sroggin said.

Marie Scroggins talked to investigators last week who say they are still working on the case but have no new details about that night he was shot and killed in 1996. Police are still asking for any information and if you have any, call crime stoppers at 940-322-9888.
