Rita Haymons and her sisters are spending their Saturday canvassing their brother's neighborhood hoping to find clues. Their brother, 46-year-old Bill Hilton, was found dead on his front porch in May.

Now, even though police have closed the case, siblings say they still have many questions.

Rita Haymons said, "I just want to understand what happened and when we go in the neighborhood maybe someone will remember something, if in fact anything did happen."

The Leon County Sheriff's Office did give this written statement:

"Based on reports by the medical examiner from the autopsy, interviews and witness statements, and evidence from the scene, we can not establish foul play caused the subject's death."

Family members are offering a $5,000 reward for more information into Hilton's death. If you think you can help call LCSO at 850-922-3300.
