Grieving father: ‘I am not going to let this go away at all’

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A grieving father is back on the streets, once again searching for his son’s killer in Chesterfield County.

Matthew McDaniel was just weeks away from graduating Meadowbrook High School in Chesterfield County when he was found shot to death a little more than two years ago.

His dad and police have refused to let this case go cold, hitting the streets Monday for answers.

On May 11, 2013, police found 19-year-old Matthew McDaniel lying in the road on Pembroke Street, dead of single gunshot wound. More than two years later, police and Johnny McDaniel are still searching for the killer.

“I am asking the neighborhood, I am asking the public to help me find this person who killed my son,” McDaniel said.

McDaniel frequently travels from Florida to Chesterfield County looking for clues in the case of his son’s murder.

On Monday, with the help of police, he went door to door in the area where his son’s body was found, pleading with neighbors to come forward with what they know.

“We are pretty confident that someone who lives in this neighborhood has heard or seen something,” said Chesterfield County Police Lt. P.J. McCann.

McDaniel says his son was well-liked and full of potential. The heart-broken father says he’ll remain on the hunt for his son’s killer until justice is served.

“I want justice…I want him in jail or dead and until that happens, I am not going to let this go away at all,” McDaniel explained.
