Family travels from Mississippi to Kokomo to seek answers into unsolved murder

HOWARD COUNTY, Ind. – A spouse and children from Mississippi used the working day in central Indiana in search of solutions to an unsolved murder.

Christopher Rucker was located shot to death alongside a county road just east of Kokomo last month.

From the spot the place the victim was found dead to his hometown in Mississippi, it is just more than 700 miles.

This week his family members produced that prolonged push with the hope of figuring out what led up to the loss of life.

“It’s hurtful due to the fact he was the child,” reported the victim’s sister Christon Rigid.  “It’s hard to not listen to him simply call on the vacations.”

Christon, together with her sister and cousin, expended their holiday break time far from home looking for clues into the dying of her more youthful brother.

“His relatives is right here now to help him and give him a voice since he was loved,” claimed Rigid.

“We’re not giving up on this.  We’re undertaking all we can to make absolutely sure justice is brought,” reported the victim’s cousin SirJohnathan Rucker.

Just before his murder, the 27-12 months-outdated victim lived and labored in Marion but grew up with most of his household in Yazoo Town, Mississippi.

So much, the motive for Rucker’s taking pictures stays a thriller.

“We really do not know.  Only the men and women of this county know,” stated the victim’s sister Jessica Rigid.  “We’re here for the truth.  We’re not in this article for the he mentioned she explained.”

“You know it would suggest so significantly for us to have some peace,” mentioned Rucker.

It is not very clear if the sufferer was driven to the place alongside County Highway 500 East and shot or if he was killed someplace else and dumped off, but his household hopes their 11-hour push north finishes with another person held accountable for the demise.

“We’re from Mississippi.  We came all the way to Indiana to demonstrate we’re not taking this frivolously.  We’re likely to push this issue and justice will be served,” explained Rucker.

Sheriff’s investigators would only say the situation continues to be lively, but no arrests have been built.
