This story was written in 2018, but is being used again to bring attention to the cold case in 2019.

A mother is asking the community for help to find who shot and killed her son. This week marks 14 years since Tommy Kinslow was murdered outside his home in Colorado Springs. He was gunned down just days before Thanksgiving.

"People sit around the table and talk about what they're thankful for, and we sat at the mortuary," said Pam Kinslow, Tommy's mother.

This is the first year that Pam Kinslow has been away from Colorado Springs on the anniversary of her son's death. Kinslow tells 11 News her family recently moved out of Colorado, but she will never stop searching for the truth.

"Tommy's killer is out walking the streets, living their life," said Kinslow. "Ours has a big empty spot in it now."

Even 14 years later, the last memory Pam Kinslow has of her son Tommy doesn't get any easier. She remembers so much about that day, including the moment she saw her son's body lying in the street.

"I saw the police cars, fire department and ambulance, and Tommy laying in the middle of the street," Pam said, "It's a sight I'll never forget."

Kinslow believes that someone out there knows what happened to her son, and it is time for them to come forward.

"I want them to come forward with leads, so that detectives can follow up on things."
