DECATUR COUNTY, Tenn. -- It was a trail ride for justice in Decatur County Saturday morning.

"He liked to hunt, he liked to fish, and that's what I raised him up doing. He liked horses, he just had lots of friends, and he loved MMA," said Mike Conway.

Since November 2013, the family has been searching for a killer, and Saturday was a day to honor 28-year old Wesley Conway.

"They came to me and said 'Let's have Wesley a ride because his friends knew that's what he enjoyed doing' so that's kind of how we just wanted to honor him," Conway said.

Wesley Conway left behind a 3-month old son that he never got the chance to meet.

Standing in his room, his aunt said she vividly remembers the day his life was taken.

"We just stood there in the rain and waited and then there was nothing. All this time there's been nothing that we know of that's happened," Conway's Aunt, Sarah Camper, said.

Family friend Betty Hall said this violence has to stop.

"We have to stand up for each other. We can't just be quiet and let these things take place in our community," explained Hall.

Those who were close to him said it's time for justice to be served.

"We want people to know how important he was to us. We want to know why. We want answers. He didn't deserve it," Tammy Bailey said.

Family and friends say they hope someone comes forward and are asking anyone with information to contact the TBI or leave an anonymous tip with crimestoppers.
