She knew something was wrong when he didn't pick up the phone
"I tried to call him this morning to talk to my baby, but he wouldn't answer the phone. I want to talk to him," says St. Pierre.
Authorities are still looking for the person or people responsible for killing St. Pierre's 31-year old son. She says they need to do the right thing and turn themselves in.
"Whoever done this to my son, I hope you grow up and be a man about it and come face the charges that you got coming at you, because you deserve to be arrested and put in jail for taking a life," states St. Pierre.
Family and friends gathered at St. Pierre's home to honor Dailey's life. They say they just have so many good memories of that man with the smile that lit up a room.
