Stevenson was killed on Sept. 20, 2019, while he was outside a funeral home at the corner of South 5th and Winnsboro.

Robert K. Coleman is suspected of the murder.

"C'mon now, you got God in you. We all got God in us because we're made from God. Do the right thing and turn yourself in, Robert," said Stevenson's mother, Barbara Stevenson.

She said Dee Stevenson was at the funeral home for the wake of his friend, Christopher Coleman, who was killed the week before.

"He went there in peace. He never made it home. He got killed. And that's not right," she said.

Stevenson's wife, Courtney Stevenson, said he was an incredible father who was always there for his loved ones.

"All his friends call him the standup guy. Dee was an all-around great person. You will never in your life meet nobody else like Dee," she said.

According to police, Coleman is possibly driving a green 2002 GMC Yukon with dark, tinted windows and an LED light along the back bumper.

The Crimestoppers website says anyone with a tip that leads to a felony arrest/indictment is eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.
