Ricardo Morris’ family hold balloon release one year after his death

SAVANNAH, Ga (WSAV) – A family grieves one year later following the unsolved murder of a 38- year old Savannah man.

Monday, Ricardo Morris’ family held a prayer service and a balloon release.

“We need answers,” says Morris’ mother Brenda Curtis.

Answers are hard to come by for Curtis and the family of Ricardo Morris.

“Nothing changed, I need something to change, I need something, someone to do something about this.”

Morris’ car was found torched in Garden City over a year ago, the next day police recovered his body along Laroche avenue.

“He never made an enemy, and as I’ve said every mother deserved a son like Ricky,” says Curtis.

Now one year later, no closure has come to the family who remembers Morris for so many bright moments.

“He was a person you could literally sit down and talk to about anything you wanted to talk to him about. he was never a bad person. If he was not home he was either riding around looking for a job and finding ways he could take care of his kids,” says Morris’ son Daquan Smith.

Morris now will not see his four kids graduate and go to college. Concluding the vigil, friends and family released balloons for Ricky Morris still grieving and still searching for justice.

“Your friends, they’re taking your life and we need to do something about this, we need to get these murdering cowards off the streets of Savannah,” Curtis says.

There is a reward set for any information provided on this case that could lead to an arrest in Morris’ death. A tip line is open directly to investigators at (912) 525-3124
