Grief is weighing heavily on an Owensboro family, after they tragically lost their 15-year-old.

Corban Henry was shot two weeks ago just outside Kendall-Perkins park while riding on the back of a moped.

No arrests have been made, leaving his family with a long list of questions.

Monday, loved ones held a rally for him.

“We love him. We miss him," said Corban's uncle Phillip Henry. "It was a senseless act. We’ll never get him back. It’s very tough, we’re just holding onto each other and trying to stay close as a family. And try to keep his name alive.”

The heartbroken family—and those who cared for the teenager—took to the streets with a simple but powerful call:

“Justice for Corban”

Theirs is a quest for answers, amid a hunt for whomever is responsible for Corban’s death.

“The killer is still free, and he hasn’t been arrested. We wanna make sure he's brought to justice. My nephew deserves that," Phillip Henry added. "There’s a killer still on the streets. I believe the police are doing all they can to bring him to justice. But we know somebody in this community knows. Many people know who did this. And we want them to come forward.”

As police still search for a killer at large, his mother shares what she wants for justice as she walks in Corban’s name:

“Anyone involved in any way gets the full punishment by law that there is,” Nancy Henry said.

Friends and family say, Monday’s march is only the beginning:

“We’re going to continue to come out and demand justice until we get it,” Phillip added.

They’re looking to have more rallies until there’s a break in the case. Anyone with information as to what might’ve happened to Corban  is asked to reach out to Owensboro police.
