The family of a murdered Wilmington man needs your help. They want the person responsible for killing Montez Jones in broad daylight on Christmas Day, to come forward. Jamica Kemp, the mother of Jones’ children said, "How am I going to tell my kids that they will never see their father again." A desperate cry from the mother of 25-year-old Montez Jones' three young children; a man she says was a hard worker, and stayed out of trouble. They have no idea why anyone would want to kill him. “He had a 9:00 to 5:00. He went to work, and didn't bother anybody." Mark Squires, a co-worker, said, "Montez was an outstanding worker, and he went the extra mile to help people out." Mark Squire worked with Jones for three years at L and L Tent Rentals. He said everyone loved Montez. “The family here at L and L, we are one big happy family here, and it really put a damper on everything around here." Jones was shot three times in cold blood on Christmas Day; a day that will never be the same for those who loved him. Jones’ younger brother said, "We are all hurt, it's Christmas, and you know no one would expect someone to die on Christmas Day, and we just miss him." Jamica saw him the morning before he was killed. Montrel came all the way back from college hoping to see his older brother. She said, "You just can't get him back, we know he is in a better place now, but you just miss him." The family says the police have a suspect in mind. However, arrest or no arrest, it will never bring back the life his family and friends say was viciously taken away. Jones' body was sent for an autopsy yesterday. The family hopes to make funeral arrangements by this weekend.
