Kyle “Skeet” Dennis Remembered One Year Later – Family Still Grieve And The Search For Justice Continues

No Crying, No Sad Faces, This Is A Celebration!

Mount Vernon – For family and friends of Kyle “Skeet” Dennis, September 18th will forever be a day that changed their life. For Wilfred and Linda (Skeet’s brother and sister) and their mom, their loved one went to an annual city celebration and never returned home. 365 days, one entire calendar year has passed, but the pain still remains and feels like it was just yesterday.

Monday night, September 18th, once again, family and friends gathered on the corner of South Eighth Avenue and West 5th Street to celebrate Skeet’s life.  “We all had a happy time at my brother Skeet vigil” Wilfred Dennis (Skeet’s brother) shares. “There was no time for crying. We all came together to honor him and his life.”

While there was much crying, the family is still struggling with the fact that Skeet’s murder has gone unsolved. No one has been brought to justice. The homicide has long fallen out of the news cycles and there have been close to a dozen or more homicides since int he city of Mount Vernon and the family wonders if there anyone still looking for the murder of their brother, son, father and friend.

“I was on the phone, talking with mommy and I look up and you were walking towards me. The tears began to fall. I said, mommy it’s Skeet! We embraced each other. You told me you were okay and that you were going to take care of us. That was the dream I had Saturday morning. It was so good hugging you, seeing you and hearing your voice again. I love you and miss you so very much. Continue to R. I. P. Skeet!” Linda (Skeet’s sister) shared on Facebook.

According to officials, the investigation remains on-going and further details will be released as they become available, but the family feels like it has become another cold case. This case may have fallen from the news cycle but Black Westchester has not forgotten and will continue to support the family in the search for justice. #Justice4Skeet
