A local family wants closure. It’s been three years since their loved one was murdered here in Albany and still no arrest has been made.

Kenneth Love Jr. was the baby of his immediate family. His two older sisters describe him as a sweetheart with a flair for fashion, and says he loved to make people laugh.

Love’s oldest sister, Shawan Lumpkin says she was in dark place for a really long time. “It’s hard, she says, every day you just learn how to cope with the loss.”

His mom shared baby pictures of her son and says every year on the day her son was murdered they pay homage to him by cooking some of his favorite foods, they light candles, and they remember him during happier times.

The family says Kenneth’s father died earlier this year, the loss of his son weighed heavy on him.

The youngest of the two sisters, Latifah Love was the first to know about the murder. She says when she found out she dropped everything and rushed to the hospital. “They cleaned him up and we got to finally see him. “They say he arrived there with no heartbeat. We still have no answers. We asked the community for help no one wants to tell us anything,” said Latifah.

Police say the homicide is still under investigation. They say if anyone knows anything they should contact detectives or they can send an anonymous tip by calling Capital Region Crimestoppers at 1-833-252-8477.
