MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

The family of Justin Langston are looking for justice after more than 90 days without an arrest in the case.

Langston was killed July 7, 2016.

Langston's car was found crashed into a utility pole on Walker near Lenow Street. What was initially called in as a crash, later was found out to be a shooting. Langston did not survive.

The family is now offering a reward and have placed posters across Memphis asking for anyone with information to call the police.

"Anything that could lead to information that could help law enforcement find Justin's killer," said Langston’s cousin Stephanie Godwin.

A public information officer with the Memphis Police Department said the detective originally involved with the case has been promoted, and the case is being reassigned.

“They tell me to be patient, they would get another detective and I have been patient," said Langston’s mother Jennifer Langston. 

For this family, who now feels like they are running out of options, they hope someone will come forward with information.

"I miss him every single day. I think tomorrow will be better but it's not any better," said Langston.

A cash reward of at least $2,000 is being offered.

If you have any information you are urged to call Crimestoppers at 901-528-CASH.
