One year ago, Blake Thomas was shot and killed. Today, his father is washing cars in the cold in hopes of raising money for Blake's tombstone.

Today, more than a year after a teen's murder, a heartbroken family is still seeking justice for their loved one.

Blake Thomas, 18, was shot at a Greenspoint apartment complex, and relatives say police have never taken the suspect into custody.

The Thomas family braved the cold weather for a community car wash, hoping to raise money for a headstone for Blake's grave.

The family says they know the cold, wet weather isn't in their favor, but that nothing will stop them from honoring Blake.

A GoFundMe has been started to help raise the money.
