"Oh, if I just knew who did this. I had that get back spirit. I wanted to get the person who killed my brother," remembers Boogie's sister Demetria McFarland. However through the years Demetria turned the anger into hope. She formed Marshall Against Violence.
A frustrated McFarland decided to make a difference. "There are killers walking the streets, but they're willing to sit back and withhold information they have instead of coming forward."
Marshall Against Violence, MAV, works with families of violent crimes with hopes reluctant witnesses will come forward to help solve many of the city's cold cases.
"As long as I have breath in my body, I'm going to fight for homicides to be solved, not just mine, but all of them." McFarland's father was also shot and killed in Marshall back in 1979. His killer was never arrested.
