    By: Tom Jones


    STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. - A father is so desperate for a break in his son's murder case, he and his family are putting up a reward for information to help catch the killer.

    Someone shot and killed Darius Grays at the Lakes Apartments in Stone Mountain last August.

    Melvin Clark said he still can't get used to not hearing from his son.

    "No call on Father's Day," he told Channel 2's Tom Jones.

    Not knowing who took away his loved one is eating him up.

    "I would like to know what it is that was so bad that would cause my son to lose his life," he said.

    All police are saying is Grays came outside that night.

    "Between 11:30 and midnight," Clark said.

    Witnesses told officers after the shooting, two men left in a silver or gray car with a female driver. One of the men had dreadlocks, the other had a low haircut.

    Tenant Dennis Carlisle can't imagine the pain Clark must be going through.

    "Well, I feel for him because it's his son. A man hates to lose his son," Carlisle said.

    Clark is so desperate for answers, he's putting up a reward.

    "This is $3,000 of the family money. Because we're desperate to get answers to why our son is gone," he said.

    "I'm not really sure that I will ever [have] closure until someone is accountable for my son's death," Clark said.

    Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Stone Mountain Police Department at 770-879-4980.
