Family members are asking for help identifying the killer of a 17-year-old Decatur boy who died while trying to protect his younger sister during a robbery.

Caleb Witty's family are pleading for any information in his death.

Witty died Aug. 4 when he and his 14-year-old sister were walking home after a carnival. Two men demanded money from the girl and the boy was struck and shot with a handgun when he stood between them and his sister. The girl ran away and reported hearing a gunshot.

The boy's aunt, Diane Monroe, says somebody knows something and asks them to "please help us."

More than 300 mourners attended the boy's funeral Tuesday.
