On the day before Thanksgiving, Grissett's mother shared a message to the community, and said she will not rest until she gets justice for her son.

Dozens of glow-in-the-dark balloons on Wednesday, November 22nd marked the now-empty parking space at 45th and North -- serving as a reminder for the neighborhood that Dajon Grissett's killer remains at large.

"Maybe people will see it and realize that this family is not giving up," Louise Grissett said. "He was the light of everybody's party. He didn't have any enemies. That's why I'm not understanding why this even happened."

Police said Grissett's body was discovered in a burning garage in an alley in the area on October 25th. Louise Grissett said that's not how her son died.

"He was shot. The bullet to the head took him out, and then they placed him inside the car and set the car on fire," she said.
