Norfolk, Va. - Every time Nancy Britt sends a text message, a tag line is automatically sent with it - "R.I.P. Mouse."

"I just want to keep his memory going," said Britt.

"Mouse" was her older brother's nickname.  Anderson Britt was gunned down more than two and a half years ago in Norfolk.

The pain of losing him is only made worse knowing that his killer has never been caught.

Britt was shot to death in November of 2011.   He had been at an event taking place at a bingo hall on E. Virginia Beach Blvd.

More than 100 people were there.

With so many witnesses in the crowded parking lot where he was killed, Nancy was sure an arrest would come quickly.

"My thoughts were 'maybe someone is going to go ahead and come forward,' but it's been just about 3 years and nobody has come forward yet," said Britt, "I would like some type of closure.  I mean the Bible says to forgive, but you won't forget.  It's gonna always be on my mind, all the time."

But to get justice for her brother, a father of four, she needs help.

Nancy is hoping someone who was there that night or who may have heard something in the years since will finally come forward.

Until there's an arrest, it's hard to know that his killer is still walking free.

"It could be possible that they've done it again, and I just want them off the streets so they won't put another family through what we've been through," said Britt.
