"I just want to bring light to this case again." Family remembers man killed a year ago

CREATED Jan. 30, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - One year after their loved one was found dead in his southeast side home, a family still searches for answers.

Thursday marked the somber anniversary of Kyle Riley's death. He would have been 28-years-old this year. He was shot and killed in his home in the 4800 block of South Lantana Place, near Irvington Road and Kolb Road.

"I just want to bring light to this case again," Kyle's mother Mary said. "I want Kyle to be remembered because he has a a lot of family and friends that miss him."

Family and friends gathered outside the very home where shots rang out exactly one year ago.

They came to honor Kyle, to reflect and mourn together and to search for answers and comfort.

"The pain will always be there," Kyle's godmother Robin Kahle said. "Not having someone to say why did you do that or how could you?"

The case is still unresolved, Detectives told KGUN 9 they have a person of interest, but don't have enough evidence to make an arrest.

"Whoever did it, there's more people that know. Somebody knows. Somebody knows and we just ask that somebody would call 88-Crime or the police or anybody," Robin Kahle said.

Mary Riley said she has only one thing to say to the shooter.

"You had no right to take my son away from me at 27-years-old."
