OLNEY, Ill. (WTHI) - It's been almost a year since Ed Hataway of Olney, Illinois disappeared. Illinois State Police found his body close to two months later along the side of the road. They ruled it a homicide. But as the investigation carries on, his family is doing their part to solve the question: who killed Ed Hataway?
"It's very frustrating to sit and wonder why somebody would kill your brother and nobody has answer for it,” a heavy sadness mixed with frustration has lived with John Hataway for almost a year.
He and his family have looked and searched for answers after police found his brother Ed, dead. Ed's death would later be ruled a homicide.
We met up with John and his fiancée Anita Scott at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Olney. It was the last place Ed Hataway visited before his death.
"We were looking for him searching for him, we became really frustrated because there became so many obstacles to cross,” Scott said.
They said getting information from state police has been difficult.
"Because it's an on going investigation they won't tell us how he was murdered or the circumstances for finding his body,” Scott went on to say. “Which we understand we just want people to come out and help us with this murder investigation and find out who did it."
Tuesday that uncertainty led the family to start a group to call on state leaders for their help in the homicide investigation.
"i call it team Ed Hataway to help us send letters to the state representatives, the congressmen, the governor, the lieutenant governor,” Scott continued.
