“The past year has been honestly the most difficult year in my life,” said Van Lacey, Evan’s father. “We’ve had up and down moments. We just have been been there for one another.”

In this time, the family has been holding onto each other and onto the good memories of Evan.

“He was goofy at times. Very caring. Any time somebody needed to be uplifted, he wasn’t afraid to be that person to do so,” Van Lacey said.

Evan’s family has this message for anyone out there who might know anything.

“I just want everyone to think if it was you, if it was your relative, if it was your child — how would you feel?” said Van Lacey. “You would want someone to speak up. So I’m just begging, pleading for someone to speak up. Even if you feel as though it’s a minute new detail, nothing is too small. Everything helps. So please speak up for Evan, speak up for my family and speak up for justice.”
