Parents hope new surveillance video helps find son's murderer



CHARLOTTE - Surveillance video just released is re-energizing the search for a murder.

Investigators found victim Jeremy Brown shot to death in an SUV in November.

Eyewitness News anchor Blair Miller spoke with Jeremy Brown’s parents, who hope the video leads to answers and justice for their son.

The surveillance video shows three men police are actively seeking. Months after the crime, his mother, Sandra Brown, still remembers her son through pictures, but says the pain is still too real.

“I’m still kind of in shock for the most part to tell you the truth about it,” she said.

The video was taken in the parking lot of a BP gas station on WT Harris Boulevard near Milton Road.

One frame at a time, you get a better look at the men standing beside the black SUV. Police say Jeremy Brown had met up with the men right before he was shot.

“I know someone knows something, someone just needs to come forward,” Sandra Brown said.

His father, Dennis Brown, has seen the pictures but does not recognize the men. He still cannot understand why anyone would hurt his son.

“We have no idea. It just caught us by total surprise and we have no idea why anyone would want to hurt my son,” Dennis Brown said.

While his parents now hope for new leads, police do, too, with this latest piece of evidence. It could potentially answer who killed Jeremy Brown and why.

Police say Jeremy Brown’s body was found inside of a car about half a mile from the gas station.
