It's been almost five months since a young man was killed after a hit and run accident in Sioux City, and the man's family continues to beg for justice.
"My son was only 22 years old. His life was just beginning. I can still see that baby boy I held in my arms..." said Mischelle DeCorah, the victim's mother.
Reading from a letter she had written, DeCorah fought back her tears, as she is still unable to cope with losing her son. She says its because no one is being held responsible for taking her son's life.
"I don't want to my son to be forgotten. His killer is still free."
Lance Knutson, 22, was hit by a car while walking crossing Floyd Boulevard in Sioux City back in September. Five months later, officials still have no suspects in custody.
So on Friday, for the second time since her son's death, DeCorah stood with her family members, outside the police station in downtown Sioux City, holding signs and demanding justice for lance.
"I just can't stand around and do nothing and say nothing," said DeCorah.
Channel 9 spoke with the attorney in charge of the case, who said, "We are still reviewing the case to make sure we can file the appropriate charges and make sure they stick."
And while DeCorah understands there's a legal process to go through, she says the wait has truly been agonizing, for her and her family.
"I feel like I cant even start my grieving process. I feel like I'm at a stand still."
DeCorah has since moved to Omaha, Nebraska, She says it was too painful to be in the house and drive the down the street where her son was killed.
