TUCSON - A family devastated over the loss of their loved one is looking for answers, tonight.
Tucson Police just re-classified the assault of William Edwards as a homicide. It happened in November, near Stone Avenue and Pastime Road as Edwards was riding his bike to the grocery store.
Police say, he got into a confrontation with a man, in a white SUV. Edwards was assaulted, the autopsy report reveals those injuries were fatal.
The family is crying out for justice.
Sandra had been with Edwards for 40 years, they had four children and 11 grandchildren. She prays every morning and every night for guidance, patience and for strength. She says, "I miss him so much."
Her living nightmare began on November 17, when Edwards showed up at their home in pain after getting assaulted by a heavy set Hispanic man in a white SUV. She says Edwards told her, the man "Gave a U turn got out of the car and that's when he went up to him (Edwards) and struck him."
She called 911, and Edwards went to the hospital. He was treated and released. He died the following day. Now she wants the public to help Tucson Police find the man responsible. So she continues to pray. "There's nothing that God and the Virgin Mary can't do for you."
She says, Edwards was a good man, and wasn't violent. He loved family, the U of A Wildcats, the redskins, and especially his grandchildren. "I loved him very much, and it's very hard for me because he won't say those words to me anymore."
If you have information call 911 or 88-CRIME.
