ROSELAWN, OH (FOX19) -

It’s been a few months since Jeremy Morris was killed and police are no closer to finding his killer than when he was murdered in October.

At this point, they are asking for the public’s help.

According to authorities, the search is at a standstill despite the fact that several people were in the parking lot near Celebrities Nightclub on Reading Road where Morris was shot in his car.

After getting shot, officials said Morris drove his car and hit several parked cars before succumbing to his gunshot wound.

“You took a good person,” said Denise Pates, his fiancee. The two were together for 6 years and planned to get married in March of 2016.

He described as a funny family man who would give the shirt off his back. “He was a good guy. He didn’t deserve to die,” she continued.

Police tell FOX19 NOW that they believe there are two suspects who were walking around the parking and had never met Morris before he was shot.

The suspects did have an encounter with another person, but no shots were fired. It’s unclear what conversation sparked Morris being shot while sitting in his car.

His fiance tells us he was there waiting on a friend.

Pates is urging anyone who may know who the suspects are to come forward. “I look at it like this, if it was someone in their family they would want the public to speak up.”

If you have any information you are asked to call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.

    Homelessness is a major problem in San Francisco, as well as other cities on the West Coast with growing numbers of high-paying tech jobs that price lower-income residents out of a shrinking housing supply.
