RICHMOND, Va.  -- Roslyn Cousins made a powerful plea Saturday afternoon in Richmond.

"Step forward and let me know why you did this to my son," she said.

Her son, Randolph (Randy) Scott Jr., a 28-year-old Marine was killed exactly ten years ago Saturday.

"My child was a brave while, he would lay down his life for any of you that are out here today," said Cousins.

Roslyn Cousins said her son had come up to Richmond from Emporia the night of his death. She said her son had dropped someone off at a home on Lauradale Lane.

"For some reason, somebody shot my son three times," said Cousins.

To this day, police have not found Scott Jr.'s killer.

"We have a very complete puzzle of what went down that night, we're just missing one tiny piece and if we can get the citizens to recollect and remebmer back to that night," said Richmond Police Capt. Emmett Williams.

On Saturday, dozens came out to a vigil to support Cousins and to continue praying for answers in the death of her son.

The family still grieves the loss each and everyday, but by remembering him and keeping his legacy alive, they hope someone out there will come forward.

"My life has been devastated, I lost my only son," said Cousins.

Cousins said the reward is now up to $11,000. If you have information, call Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
