LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNEWS) -- A local family is still looking for justice six years after their 18-year-old son was shot and killed.

Cory Isacone was murdered August 19, 2007 along a quiet street in Desert Shores.

While no one was been arrested his family is still hoping the right tip will come in.

“I miss his smile, I miss his laugh,” said his sister Ashley MacClatchey.

Ashley MacClatchey knows better than anyone how much her younger brother has missed. This includes her wedding, and the birth of a niece and nephew.

It was all stolen from him, when Isacone was murdered, six years ago next week. The case is still unsolved.

“It's so horrible this happened to our family in the first place but then to have no explanation and no answers 6 years later, it's inconceivable,” MacClatchey says.

Today, family and friends gather at Cory's gravesite writing messages on 18 silver star balloons.

The location brings peace to Cory's mom Shannon Capri.

“The times I've been the weakest, some message has come along to pick me up and bring me to the next step, from him,” Capri said.

According to police, Cory was found shot in his own car right on Point Conception in Desert Shores. A passerby reporting his vehicle stopped in the middle of the travel lane at 2:30 in the afternoon. There are houses all around, but apparently no one saw or heard anything.

Details of the crime are listed on the homicide section of Metro's website. The case is still considered "active" but due to retirements, and transfers, the family says the file is now in the hands of a fourth lead detective.

All they need is one solid tip.

“I'd like people to come forward because I do feel people know what happened, and do the right thing possibly,” Capri said.

“And it's still hard today because there's so many questions that aren't answered that it just doesn't fill that hole. It's lonely,” said his girlfriend Kristen Jenson.
