Peoria police are still trying to track down a person of interest in a road rage killing last week.
His family is begging anyone with information to come forward. They’re devastated by what happened.
Miles Romanski, just 24 years old, had just recently gotten married and was looking forward to a new baby in March.
“You can’t imagine I don’t think anybody can imagine,” says Cathy Beck, Romanski’s aunt. She still doesn’t feel like it’s real.
Romanski was murdered during a road rage shooting January 8th. He spent two days on life support.
“It’s been very hard on the family trying to deal with all the reasons why there is no closure yet.”
The shooting happened near 73rd Avenue and Peoria early that morning. Romanski had just picked up his younger brother Dallas and they were headed to his apartment.
Police say they got into an argument with the driver of a 2006 Dodge Charger. As many as 3 shots were fired – Romanski was hit once in the head.
His brother held him in his arms, just helpless.
“We saw his brother that day, he was just totally traumatized,” says uncle, Scott Beck.
Beck says Dallas was so traumatized he wasn't even able to speak about what happened to investigators for 6 hours.
However, police were able to get a license plate number. They also tied the Dodge Charger to 19-year-old Michael Zamora. He’s being called a person of interest -- and police have not yet tracked him down.
“This was a very violent act this should never happen to anyone,” says Cathy Beck.
Romanski had two young stepdaughters. He's known his wife Michelle since he was just 13 years old.
“Having the unborn child coming, it was very hard for her, they had their whole life ahead of them and now she’s trying to figure out how to move forward,” she says.
Romanski’s funeral will be held Wednesday. His family is pleading with the public -- if you know Zamora’s whereabouts or can help police with the case -- call Silent Witness or the Peoria Police Department.
