PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla.-- A family is pleading for answers in the death of their loved one.

Thomas Altman was killed two years ago this week in Lake Worth.

Palm Beach County deputies say Altman, who was homeless, was beaten and killed on North L street in 2016.

Altman's family says he was known as the "lawn man" because he would mow lawns in the neighborhood to make money.

No arrests have been made and now his family is asking for help to find justice.

"The killer, the one who did this, if you have a conscience at all please come forward and relieve the pain that we are in right now," Altman's mother said at a news conference Wednesday.
A $1,000 reward is being offered in the case.

Anyone with information is asked to call Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 800-458-TIPS.
