— Nearly 11 years after the death of Josh Davis, his case is still unsolved, but on what would have been his 27th birthday, his family is still determined to find out what happened.

Back in January of 2004, Josh Davis was walking down the road when something hit him in the head. Police do not know what it was, and they do not know if his death was intentional or accidental.

"The end result -- it's still the same. He's never coming back, but I want to know what happened. I want to know how he died," his mother Judy Creech said.

The family hired a private investigator.

"I think the good memories are just starting to come. I had long months of every single day just seeing Josh lying on the side of the road," she said.

Creech hopes there are answers down the road.

"That little bit of hope we live with every day that someone is going to come forward and let us know what happened to him," she said.

Lt. Chris Clayton, a spokesman for the Garner Police Department, said, "Josh's death remains an active case with the Garner Police Department, and we want people to come forward with any information they believe is relevant to our investigation. We would like to be able to give some closure to the family and the community from this tragedy.”
