Isle of Wight County, Va. - The family of a murdered man is begging for answers more than three years after their son and grandson was killed.

They still keep a candle lit next to Torrey Anderson's picture. "We burn this candle for justice for Torrey," said Sylvia Anderson, Torrey's grandmother. His brutal murder from February 2013 remains unsolved.

"It's kind of a mystery for us," said Lt. Tommy Potter, an investigator at the Isle of Wight Sheriff's Office. "What happened to Torrey?" The question has consumed investigators. They found Anderson shot and burned about 15 feet from his charred car, but his killer is still on the loose.

"We don't know if he was killed here in Isle of Wight County or if unfortunately he was killed somewhere else and his body was just dumped here," said Potter. "All we know is we have a car burned and the remains of a young man."

His family is still looking for closure.

"That was the worst day of my life," said Tamira Anderson, Torrey's mom. "I kept thinking did he see it coming? How did he feel? Was he scared?"

Could the key to the murder lie with what happened in Anderson's final days? NewsChannel 3 digs through the evidence in the case in a special report airing Tuesday at 11 pm.
