Mother asks for help in finding son's killer
COLUMBIA (WACH) –A Columbia mother is asking for your help in finding her son’s killer.
Willie Gilmore was shot outside of the Colony Apartments while at a party in November of last year.
“I’m hoping that we can just get justice without nobody getting hurt. So I can look in that person’s eye and ask them why this happened.” Said Betty Gilmore, mother of the victim.
Police have no leads in the case, but are continuing to investigate. Family members are asking anyone that knows anything about what happened that night to come forward to help Police solve this case.
“At the end of the day, the bottom line is there’s a mother who is grieving and if someone cannot be convinced enough to call in after hearing the words of a grieving mother, I don’t know what can convince them.” Said Jennifer Timmons of the Columbia Police Department.
