Micah Nicholson said what was most frustrating for him was the fact that people in the community know what happened, but hadn't come forward.

"I'm missing my sister like crazy. I'm missing her like crazy," said Micah Nicholson. "Everybody says it's supposed to get better. That kills me because it doesn't get better for me. Every day is a harder day. I realized I'm not going to see my sister."

Micah Nicholson said adding to his heartache was not knowing what happened. He said all he learned was that his sister was killed before the fire was set.

"I can only go on for so long before I get some type of closure, some answers," said Micah Nicholson.

The grieving brother was tasked with the responsibility of caring for his 6-month-old niece.

"Her daughter will never know who she is, and people are out here with that info. I need y'all to come forward, please. I need help with this situation," said Micah Nicholson.

If you have information that could help in this case, please contact Milwaukee police.
