Over 4-months after her son's death Monica Jefferson says she has just gotten to point where she can talk about her late son without crying.

"Malcolm was my son he was murdered on his 18th birthday he just graduated from West Ashley High School on June 21st; he was to start Trident Technical College in January."

She says Malcom came from good home and that she and her husband did their best at raising him-- but being with the wrong people at the wrong time made him a victim of random violence on Forbes Avenue. It was the night of October 8th when her life changed.

She fights off feelings of anger but it's difficult at times knowing there are people out there who could help solve this case- especially involving Malcolm, a person his mother says would do anything for anybody.

"Right now he needs his friends to come forth and tell us what happened to my son and it makes me very bitter to know that somebody is running around with information and refusing to give it."

For now she waits-- and believes police are doing the best they can with the investigation but it's difficult when those who have information refuse to speak up-- meantime she says she will refuses to give up.

"This will never ever be a stale case this case will forever be alive if I have to march alone with a sign I will do that to let them know, you're not going to stay free, you will be caught, you will be caught. They need to enjoy the ride they are on right now because I promise you whoever it is will be prosecuted to the fullest. I will not rest until my some has been vindicated. "

Police are asking for help, if you have any information on the crime you are asked to call Crimestoppers at 554-1111.  A cash reward now stands at $4,000 for the tip leading to an arrest.
