Exclusive: Mother asks police to speed up son's murder investigation for closure

Mother frustrated with son's murder investigation

CINCINNATI - It's been more than seven months since Fairfield man Damien Terrell Taylor, 29, was found dead in his home.

Taylor's family said the pace of the investigation is only adding to their pain.

"I'm still grieving my son and that will not stop, and I believe I will have closure once my son's murder has been solved," Taylor's mother Sharon Haney said.

Haney is looking for answers from police as to who killed her son.

"They just gave me names of some people in question," she said. "They have interviewed some of these people. It seems like everything is going in circles."

"I'm frustrated, I'm anxious, I'm angry, I'm sad all the time," Taylor's sister Erica Thompson said. "I just want to know who did this to my brother."

Haney feels police should interrogate witnesses more so they can find out what happened to her son.

Taylor was found shot to death in his Fairfield home in March. He left behind a 10-month-old son and a 12-year-old daughter.

"I still have his text messages in my phone. I look at them every day," Thompson said. "I can't let it go."

The family is also having a hard time letting go why someone would have murdered a loving brother, son and father.

"I feel like I didn't get the chance to say goodbye," Haney said. "Whoever knows about my sons murder, please come forward and give my family some closure."

Fairfield police said they are still actively working this case and have a suspect in mind. However, key players are not cooperating, and that is slowing their investigation.
