Bullets fly in the park: Family wants to know who killed "Biggie"

CREATED Jun. 12, 2013

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The crime tape littered across Mansfield Park. It's the last place anyone saw Niles "Biggie" Ceasar alive.

"He didn't deserve this," said Kathleen Deluche-Ceasar.

Someone shot and killed Niles just before the park closed.

"We're still trying to piece together a suspect description," said TPD Sgt. Chris Widmer.

While police investigate, his girlfriend and 2-year-old son Marques are in disbelief.

"He keeps saying where's daddy," said Deluche-Ceasar, choking back tears. "How do you explain to a 2-year-old that daddy's not coming home?"

Neighbors around Mansfield Park didn't want to talk on camera, but they do tell me they heard several gunshots.

"Whoever's done this needs to step forward and tell the truth," said Niles' brother.

Niles' brother wants answers. He says whoever did it killed a good man, a Christian, a Lakers fan and former Marine who loved his family. And in a cruel twist, in just 18 days, Niles planned to marry his longtime partner. But that's all changed.

"He would do anything for anyone at anytime," said his brother.

So now the hope is someone watching can do something for him and help catch his killer.

"I pray every moment that someone comes forward and says what happened," said Deluche-Ceasar. "So I can make closure."

She doesn't want her son growing up not knowing what happened to his father.

Police say they've interviewed several people in the area Tuesday night. But no one they talked to actually witnessed the shooting, they just heard it. If you know anything about this murder, you're urged to call 911 or 88-crime. You can remain anonymous.
