INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.-One year after a man was shot to death while driving on I-70 in Indianapolis, police have still not found his killer. Now on the anniversary of his murder, Derrick Gregory’s family is keeping his memory alive and hoping new information will lead to an arrest.
“We have faith that…he’s with us every day,” said Gregory’s sister, Rebecca Thompson.
On November 25, 2015, somebody fired several shots into Gregory’s truck as it was driving on I-70 westbound near the I-465 interchange. Gregory was hit, he crashed and then died hours later at Eskenazi hospital. His killer has never been found.
“I’ll never move past it, until we go to trial and find the person who murdered my son,” said Gregory’s mother, Becky Whitis.
Investigators first thought it was a case of road rage, but recently say evidence shows that Gregory was targeted. However, by whom or for what reasons remain unclear. Gregory’s family say it’s time for the killer to come forward along with anyone else who knows who pulled the trigger.
“People just need to stop being cowards and come forward and get these people off the streets,” said Whitis.
This is likely a case that depends on someone telling police what they know, and as always you can choose to remain anonymous if you’ve got information on what happened. If you’ve got a tip, you’re asked to call IMPD or Crimestoppers at (317) 262-TIPS.
