My sincere condolences for yours and all those grieving. You sound willing to discuss his story publicly. Are you trying to find out exactly what happened? It sounds like you're seeking accountability as well. Have you left messages of these details for the detectives, and are the witnesses willing to speak to the detective? If so then have the witnesses contact the detective next. With hearsay, it shouldn't be taken for word alone, so hopefully the detectives get fast at work in seeking that justice is done. I pray that your family finds peace. Once again, my sympathies.

So sorry for your loss. Fisher is one of the good guys so try and be patient. Keep your bro name in their mouth though. Call all the time. Ask question about their progress,, if need be ask to talk with the chief or call the mayors office. What did they shhot him up with? Was he a drug addict?

My heart goes out to you. I know that it's hard to move on when suffering such a loss of someone so close. To cope with losing Dad and Mom both, I chose to hold on to my sweetest and funniest memories of them to focus on when reflecting on what life was like when they were around. These kinds of memories that in my moment of grief, make me burst out with laughter, actually help me cope on a daily basis. I did not expect to lose either of my parents so early in life, but I realize that their are more people even less fortunate as to not know their parents on earth at all, so I won't complain. People already think I'm crazy so I don't mind them seeing me laughing out loud all by myself without knowing what's so funny.

I wish I could do more to help, but if while you're grieving, in reflection, pick the funniest memory you have of him and grasp it so that every time you start to grieve again, you remember the best of him! I don't think the grief ever really goes away, but is learned to be managed instead. It's just my experience with it.

If it's any consolation, people really do reap what they sow. For instance, I had heard that my Dad was guilty of bad deeds himself in his youth. I was told he robbed graves, as was just hearsay about his mistakes, but when it came time his own death, he was robbed of his own grave for seven years, and so I couldn't help but wonder if that hearsay was really true. He sat in a closet for seven years before we were finally able to put him to rest with his parents as he had requested. That was a very difficult time in my life as I was 7 months pregnant with my first child when he passed. My Dad never got to meet his grandchildren here on earth, but my second child knew who he was from a picture and I was amazed about his recognition of him.

Thank you to everyone for your compassion, I am feeling much better . But I am still seeking justice for my brother Tony Sellers, We were 13 months apart, I always felt like we were twins, And I feel like half my heart is gone now, I don't understand why justice has not been served yet. I love my brother more than life it self...... I pray to get the truth 1 of these days....

Don't give up! Remind the cops that he was loved, and is missed. You have one of the good ones working for you. Try to remember that they are over-loaded on cases and paperwork, but still let them know you need answers and closure.
Best of luck to you
