Authorities say, there is a three hour window from when Hayes was last seen alive to when he was found dead. As the days mount, they are struggling to determine what went wrong.

For Tina Jackson, it's the phone call that every parent dreads, finding out something has happen to your child, even worse, finding out your child has been murdered.

Cedric Hayes Jr., would be 27 this year. His mother Tina says, not a day goes by she doesn't think about him and his big smile.
