The two year anniversary of the day a teen was found badly injured and died in the middle of a Goochland road is a few weeks away. The car that hit Billy Lee Maxwell is still nowhere to be found.
Two years later, investigators are still following up on leads in this cold case but none have brought them closer to making an arrest.
Billy Lee Maxwell's mom Christina brought her son's ashes back home. Monday night, NBC12 sat down with her at the memorial she made. She says there's not one day that goes by when she doesn't think of her son.
"I think we've reached a point in our healing and we can't move on to continue healing because we're stuck because we have a piece of the puzzle that's not there," she explained.
That missing piece is who was driving the car when it struck or ran over the 17-year-old on Route 250 in the early morning hours of September 18, 2010.
"The person that did this to my son is still out there and they know they did this," Christina maintained. "They're going on with their life."
The last time Billy was seen alive and well was around 2:30 a.m., when newspaper carriers spotted him trying to thumb a ride.
Phone records show the last call Billy made was at 2:54 a.m. His mother said it was to try and get a ride.
At 3 a.m., just six minutes later, Billy was found breathing but unresponsive in the middle of the road.
He died at the scene. No one has ever come forward to claim responsibility. Now, there's question as to whether or not a suspect might have seen the fliers and the intense media coverage.
The "Field Days of the Past" event was held the weekend Billy was killed. It brings people from all over, many of whom travel in and out of town on Route 250.
Christina is looking for a way to get the message to them, especially if the person responsible is in that group.
"If you think you've gotten away with this, think again," she warned. "You haven't. We're coming after you. We're here. We'll keep going. We'll push and push and fight and fight."
If you have any information about the case, call the Goochland County Sheriff's Office at 556-5349.
