The family of a young father murdered late last year is making a new push to find his killer.
23-year-old Anthony Maldonado was found shot to death at the Doral Club Apartments off Culebra in November.
Tamara Maldonado says she thinks about her younger brother Anthony every day.
"I dream about him every day."
More than eight months since his death, Maldonado's family is now passing out fliers around town, putting his case back in the spotlight.
"We just have to take matters in our own hands, because we feel like we're not getting any feedback at all," said Maldonado.
"We don't know what's going on,” said girlfriend Abigail Martinez. “Nobody has said anything to us."
Last December, Maldonado's girlfriend Abigail told us she was holding out hope for a quick arrest.
"A lot of people say, when you find out who did this, you're going to be very surprised," Martinez said at the time.
Months later, still no one is in custody.
"As the days go by it gets harder,” says Martinez now. “It gets a lot harder. I mean, he's not here anymore."
It was Abigail who found her boyfriend inside their Northwest side apartment, shot in the back of the head. Police say there was no forced entry, no sign of a struggle, and their 42-inch flat screen Vizio TV and Xbox 360 were missing.
"His life was taken from him,” said Maldonado. “He was murdered. You know, he was murdered in his home. The baby’s things were there in the room. I mean, no remorse at all."
Baby Janay was just four months old at the time of her dad's murder. Last month, she turned one.
"She's getting very big,” said Martinez, smiling. “And she reminds me a lot of him."
That's her motivation to keep going, Martinez says. The Maldonado family won't let people forget about Anthony.
"Please help us find justice for his murder, so that our hearts may be at peace," Maldonado said, reading from the flier.
"Somebody took him from us, and justice needs to be served,” Martinez said through tears. “They're not going to get away with what they've done.”

Texas weathers wind, rain but no tornadoes
May 22, 2013 01:54 GMT
DALLAS (AP) -- Fears of tornadoes across northern and eastern Texas failed to materialize, for the most part as wind and rain caused some minor damage but no disastrous effects.
Much of central, northern and eastern Texas spent Tuesday afternoon under a tornado watch.
Winds gusting up to almost 70 mph were reported in many areas as the storms blew through the region. But damage reported by law enforcement agencies and storm spotters to the National Weather Service was confined mainly to toppled trees and downed power lines. No injuries were reported.
