Family makes plea to find loved one's killer
DORAL, Fla. (WSVN) -- The family of a man who was fatally shot in front of his home last year is asking for the public's help in finding the person behind the senseless shooting.
Police said someone opened fire on Frederick Duberry, 44, back in June as he returned from work to his home located at 17531 SW 92 Ave. in Palmetto Bay. "Just image coming home with that image in your mind," said Duberry's mother, Margaret John.
Homicide detectives said they have no suspects and no clues except for grainy surveillance video that shows the gunman opening fire and then fleeing the scene.
Duberry's girlfriend, Gloria Hall, and his 6-year-old daughter were asleep inside the home when the shots rang out. "It just seemed like it was a dream when I went outside and found him there," said Hall.
As John fought back tears, she had just one question for the killer. "What could he have done that was so bad that you could do this?"
Duberry also leaves behind a 15-year-old son. "He always used to be tough on me, and I know why, he was just preparing me for that day when he left," said Frederick Duberry, Jr.
Now, nine months later, these painful memories still haunt the family. They want to know who is the face behind the brutal attack that killed the father of two. "If you are brave enough to take his life, then you should be brave enough to come forward," said John.
Investigators said they believe it was a targeted attack, and the motive could possibly be robbery.
