Family wants justice after Christmas Day murder

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - Dyersburg Police say they are following every lead in the Christmas Day murder of Quincy Terry.

They are hoping his mother and sister will help them find his killer.

"We cry everyday, everyday," says Terry's mother, Ruthie Armstrong.

It has been nearly two months since Quincy Terry, nicknamed " Mac Que, " was shot and killed.

For his mom, life just hasn't been the same.

"I can't think right. Like I'm talking to you right now ... in ten or fifteen minutes, I won't know what you said," said Armstrong.

Family members say Terry got into a fight with his cousin at a house on Peabody Street. They say Terry drove away, then drove back to the house, and was shot in both legs.

A memorial sits at the site of the crime.

"It's like some people don't care, like whoever did it don't care," says Terry's sister Paige Armstrong.

Quincy Terry had six kids: four boys and two girls.

His family says they were the light of his life, and now they'll grow up without a father.

"I hurt more for the kids than anybody because they are constantly asking where their dad is ... They're always asking about him," adds Paige Armstrong.

Family members say they will never stop grieving but hope to soon find closure.

"I don't hate whoever did it, but wrong is wrong and it was wrong," said Paige Armstrong.

If you can help police find Quincy Terry's killer, call Dyersburg Crime Stoppers at 731-285-TIPS.
