Monday marks the three year anniversary in the murder of a Chesterfield security officer found beaten to death while on the job.
No one has been arrested or charged in the murder of 28-year-old Damion West.
On the anniversary of West's death, family members gathered at Oakwood Cemetery in Richmond to mourn his death and to pray for answers in his murder.
Loved ones held hands as they stood near West's grave site to pray.
"Our Father in Heaven, we come to you today, we're asking you, Lord, for closure. We're asking you, Lord, to put your arms around each and every one of us," said Patricia Blowe, West's mother.
It was three years ago on July 9 — their lives changed forever.
That's when West was working as a security guard at the Ivy Walk apartments in Chesterfield.
"We ask you, Lord, to look over him," Blowe said with tears in her eyes.
West was found beaten to death near a retention pond at the complex. Three years later, his killer is still on the loose.
"It's time to come forward. It's time to put this to rest," said West's grandmother, Constance Powell.
West was a father, brother, son and grandson. One balloon was released for one life lost.
"We thank you, Lord — in your name, this is our prayer we ask you today. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, amen," said Blowe.
Police say, there are no new leads in the case.
