"Show unity, unity in the community. There is strength in numbers. We also want someone to speak up because it's not right. He was just left there, shoes took off and no ones found his car yet," said Lisa Molock, who led the march.
She is the founder of No One Left Unhelped, a non-profit organization she created to help families who've lost loved ones to violence just like she has.
They marched around the apartment complex where he was found. As they marched, they spread the message of peace in the hopes that someone will come forward with information.
"If ya'll know something, say something. I'm begging all you. I don’t care about the snitch rule, I don’t care about none of it. It don’t matter no more. There's too many bodies dropping out here, man. It's too many. They getting left, kids growing up without their fathers around here," said Chyna Lucas, the mother of Lowther's two-year-old son. "He took care of all of us, all of us. He made sure got I every single day for us. And they took his life away from all of us, all of us. All of us. All of us."
She stressed he didn't just take care of her and their two-year-old son but also her daughter who wasn't even his.
Donye Lowther was the proud father of a two-year-old boy with a strong family behind him.
