Patrick Cotrona unveiled billboards Thursday that they hope will lead to arrest of those responsible for his death.
"It's obviously very frustrating for our family, not only to have lost someone so precious to us, but to know those responsible are still on the streets, enjoying their lives, enjoying their family and friends and not paying the price," said Kate Cotrona Krumm, Cotrona's sister.
Krumm said funds raised by family, friends and Atlanta citizens helped pay for the seven billboards. They advertise a $25,000 reward in the case and post composite sketches of two men who police say are

"We believe those individuals may have been responsible for some of robberies that occurred in very close proximity to where our murder occurred," said Atlanta Police Capt. Paul Guerrucci.
"We need our community partners to come forward and provide information so we can solve this murder," said Atlanta Police Chief George Turner.
Police asked anyone who may recognize the men in the sketches or have information about the crime to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
Callers can remain anonymous and information provided will remain confidential.
