— Tamira Anderson believes someone knows something about her son’s murder.

His burned body was nearby.

Investigators are currently working on a timeline of events before his death. They believe the former Garner High School student was shot and killed somewhere other than where his body was found.

She then got her first tattoo – her son’s name and a wing.

“We had a special bond,” she said. “Mother and son that was us.
