Mobile family gathers in hopes of sparking new leads on cold case

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) - The family of Bradley Huey says they still feel the large gap his passing leaves. They hope lighting a candle at a vigil sheds new light on the investigation into his death.

Brooke Taylor says it's still hard for her to realize her brother is gone.

"It still seems like yesterday to me," she said. Brooke continued, "I saw my brother every day - probably about three times a day." 

Her brother Bradley Huey was gunned down in the middle of the intersection of Vermillion and Octavia Drive April 28, 2017.

Taylor said, "My brother was 21. He hasn't actually lived his life. What they did to him was wrong. They just threw him out there like a dog in the middle of the street." 

Huey's family hosted a vigil on the anniversary of his death. They say all they want is justice.

His brother Brian Taylor said, "There's no closure. God gives you closure, but we still would like the earthly closure to let us know that it's been taken care of." 

The family has been speaking to detectives and putting out flyers, but their efforts haven't yielded any clues. Brooke said, "They won't really tell us anything because they say it might hurt the case if they tell us anything."

Other family members say they're surprised no one has been arrested for the murder yet. Brian said, "I'm surprised a lot because you would think that how large the force is that they would know something. I feel like they should push more"

Brian told News 5 the family is willing to do whatever it takes to find his brother's killer. He said, "If it's about money, hey, let us know the price, we just want justice."

There is a $5,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest of Huey's killer.
