Art display honors young father gunned down walking home from work
CINCINNATI (Angela Ingram) -- A man was gunned down walking home from work and police need the community's help to find his killer.
Deion Adams had just become a father and he was working overtime to pay the bills. It was a bittersweet birthday for artist Antonio Adams as he debuted some of his newest work at his gallery and dedicated a section to his brother, Deion.
The art gallery is called Thunder Sky in Northside. Deion was murdered.
"I went to my brother, Deion's, funeral and it was kind of sad and my heart broke when I saw him in the casket," said Antonio.
Deion only lived to be 20-years-old. But in that time his family watched him mature. Deion was a fraternal twin who grew into a fun-loving teenager. Recently he had become a father.
"I still have a piece of Deion. She looks so much like him. That's my heart," said Diane Walker, Deion's mother.
June 27 Deion left his job at Rally's at Spring Grove and Mitchell. He worked extra hours to take care of his newborn and didn't have a ride home. Police don't know what happened to Deion, but somehow between work and walking he ended up dead on Reading Road near Mann Place.
Police said Deion's co-workers speak highly of him. He was always willing to go the extra mile.
Deion's mother had a message for his killer, "All I can do is ask you to turn yourself in. And I have forgiveness in my heart, I have to because I trust in God and I just want this to be over."
