Three years later unsolved murder makes significant moves

Posted: Updated:
ROANOKE -

A mother is continuing to not lose hope for justice to find out who murdered her only child.

"I still have memories of the detective coming to the house letting me know what happened," Wanda Drew, Tushawn Drew's mother.

The father of six was murdered in downtown Roanoke after a night out with friends. Even though it's emotionally difficult, Wanda speaks about it hoping anyone who saw something that night would come forward.

He was shot on Church street while he sat in the backseat of a car. It's still unknown if he was targeted but investigators say they have now made significant moves in the case.

We aren't able to give out the details cause it could jeopardize the investigation but police say they continue to follow leads. Wanda hopes one of those leads will help investigators finally find out who killed her son.

"I want to refresh everyone's memory that he isn't with us anymore and if that anybody has any information to please contact police," says Wanda.

You can contact Roanoke City Police at (540) 853-5959.
