MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee mother just celebrated the anniversary of her son's death. For the past year, she's not only been trying to find the person who murdered her son, but also clearing his name.
"As his mother I deserve some type of answers," said Tiffany Belcher, victim's mother.
It's been an agonizing year for Tiffany Belcher.
"It was heartbreaking," said Tiffany.
Tiffany's 22-year-old son, Itavian Belcher, was gunned down near 95th and Brown Deer Road in October of 2014. Since then, she's been on a mission to figure out what happened.
"I started researching myself," said Tiffany.
Itavian Belcher is seen on surveillance video collapsing inside a gas station and looking for help after being shot.
Initially, police said he was the suspect in a crime where a 30-year-old woman was shot. Neighbors then pointed to him as the gunman.
Police say he was shot during another robbery attempt a short time later.
"His character was assassinated," said a friend of Itavians.
But the victim's family claims there are discrepancies.
According to the medical examiner's report, Itavian was actually at a residence on 95th Street, when a suspect fired a handgun at him and a second victim. Itavian then exited the building and ran.
"He knew the individuals at that house. He knew them," said Tiffany.
And those who knew him say he was not a criminal.
"He was a good person. He was a good young man. I hope the killer is found and brought to justice for what he did to my grandson," said Inez.
Flyers are posted all throughout the city. The community has come together and raised $20,000 for a reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of Itavian Belcher's killer.
If you know anything you are urged to come forward.
