Geraldine Smith misses her son. Thirty-five year old Marvin O'Hara was found dead in his apartment on Hillman Avenue two years and almost two months ago.

"He got robbed and shot in the head," said Smith.

This case remains unsolved, but while the leads may have gone cold, Smith refuses to give up. Joined with dozens of loved ones she marched in front of the Suwannee County Courthouse to remind the community of her son's death.

"This is my first cousin and we miss him so dearly and we just want peace, " said Selma Willis, O'Hara's cousin.

"I need some justice, I really need some justice, I cannot rest and I got to have some justice," said Smith.

They marched up and down the sidewalk carrying signs and O'Hara's picture, hoping that someone passing by would see the face of Marvin O'Hara and remember something to help bring his case to a a close.

The march in front of the courthouse was a first, but the family holds a candlelight vigil every month on the 26th outside of the apartment where O'Hara was killed.

We tried to contact the Suwannee County Sheriff's Office for comment on the case, but we were not able to reach anyone.
