Who killed Regan Jelks? Her family traveled to Detroit from Ohio hoping someone would come forward with the answer.

The 24-year-old was shot and killed outside Club Venus at Michigan and Wyoming last May. She and a friend had just got into a car when the suspect approached pulled out a gun and pointed it at them.

Reagan's friend had a Concealed Pistol License and drew his gun in response. A shootout took place. Regan was struck.

Her mother, so overcome with grief, could barely speak.

"Reagan was my beautiful butterfly, my puppy love," said mother Michelle Hall.

"We need justice," said father Tony Jelks. "We need to find out who this killer is and bring him to justice so he can pay for what he did to my daughter."

"Everybody should understand, what my mother is going through, what her father is going through and what we're going through collectively," said Abrin Brown, Regan's brother.

Regan Jelks graduated with honors from Clinton High School in Clinton, Michigan and later attended Kent State University in Ohio. Her family says she worked for Pure Foods in Ohio as a team leader when she was killed.

"I know you're probably looking at this," said Tony Jelks. "I'm talking to you, the trigger man. We want you."

"To the family that supports the person who did this, you've got to think about what if this happened to you," said Brown.
