Detroit mother pleads for answers in son's murder

DETROIT – A Detroit mother continues her search for justice nearly five years after her son’s murder.

Seafred Robinson was shot and killed on Oct. 16, 2016. The shooting happened on Tuller Street between West McNichols Road and Puritan Avenue on Detroit’s west side.

Robinson’s mother, Tonya Robinson, is pleading for help.

“All I’m asking is for a little help. I’m gonna ask for this help because I really do need this closure,” she said. “His father passed away without closure and justice. And after his son was murdered, he went down hill. So, I’m the only one standing.”

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest.
