Still seeking justice for Don E. Owens

My son, Don E. Owens was murdered on Dec. 17, 2018. It has been four months and 21 days without an arrest.

I as a parent will continue to fight for justice for my son.

The community is talking about who has committed these gruesome killings and no one will come forward to the proper authorities.

If you know something, say something.

So many weapons have been recovered through the Adams County Sheriff’s Office and Natchez Police Department who have sent the guns off to the state crime lab in Jackson, where there is a lack of staff, turnover of employees and a poor pay rate.

I have written several legislative authorities in Jackson concerning the crime lab, and I will continue to do so because we as citizens, voters and taxpayers have the right to voice our opinions when it comes to our lives and our loved ones’ lives.

My son is no longer here, but I will not let his death go in vain. I will continue to stay in touch with the legislators in Jackson concerning the crime lab because these people who commit these crimes should not be able to walk among us as if they are in control, hoping someone will stop fighting for their loved ones and closure for all families.

Natchez resident
