Lawrence’s Aunt, Crystal Lawrence encourages anyone with information to come forward.

“If you have any information, I would appreciate it, if they would contact the police department and I know that it’s a street code, snitching and all of that, but at the end of the day my nephew was 13, and he did not deserve this.”
