SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - It’s been nearly a year since 19-year-old Cameron Lee was stabbed in his home on Kent Street in Shreveport.

Having been rushed to the hospital in a private vehicle, he later died from his wounds.

Officers were able to locate the crime scene at a residence in the 5600 block of Kent Avenue. Investigators with the Violent Crimes Unit and Crime Scene Unit were called to the scene and immediately began their investigation.

Investigators learned that Lee had a visitor arrive at his residence just before the stabbing. The visitor, who was wearing all black, later was seen running from the residence.

What the killer might not have known is a surveillance camera caught him walking down the street before the homicide and running from the scene shortly after.

On that surveillance video shown below, you can even see what appears to be the weapon - a knife.

Since Cameron’s death, his mother has been on a mission to help police find his killer.

Doris Lee has spent countless hours talking with possible witnesses and posting flyers urging anyone with information to come forward. Whomever has information can come forward without even giving their name, she says.

“You see something wrong, you have to call it. You see some crime going on, report it, simple as that.”

Doris Lee says while she misses her son every single day, she has forgiven the person who took him from her.

“I truly forgive him. My family is having a hard time, but I forgive him. I know he is watching wherever he is at, but he has to answer to the Man above. But in order for me to get past, I have to forgive him.”
