NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) – A mother is asking the public for help solving her son’s murder. Lolita Frazier drove from South Carolina to Newport News to talk about the case Monday.

“I have so much peace in my life knowing that I told my son that I loved him every single day. Every single day,” she said.

Frazier clings to that, on days like this, when she talks about that September night she learned her 21-year-old son Jordan Stith had been shot.

“I just started praying. I just asked God to cover him and just hold him in his arms and just, please just don’t let him die, and as I was walking back to my house, I just heard my daughter scream,” she said, as tears streamed down her face.

Jordan was gone before she could make it to Newport News. Another woman struck in the gunfire would recover. Police said the shooting happened near Wedgewood and Ross Drives. A witness told WAVY News he was going to a house party with others, but was told to leave, then the gunfire started.

“Why is everybody quiet? I know for a fact that not just one person knows what happened to Jordan, many people know what happened to Jordan,” Frazier said.

Frazier won’t quit until she knows, too, and when she faces her son’s killer, she knows what she’ll do.

“I forgive them because I know that that’s what I’m supposed to do. I don’t hate them. I don’t hold any type of malice in my heart towards them, but I feel like they should be accountable. They should look at me. They should allow me to tell them what they took from me, what they took from my family,” Frazier said.
