Her son was stabbed to death during a road-rage incident on I-95 exactly one month ago. So far, no arrest has been made though investigators know who wielded the knife.

Every time Jacqueline Mcnealy looks at her son's picture, she remembers his last words.

"Said I'll talk to you later. There was no later."

Now she's without a son. A sister is without a brother. A daughter is without a father.

"My son did not deserve to die. Not by the hands of two men that stabbed him many times," says Mcnealy.

Devon Fraser, 26, was leaving work last month, heading to see his six year old daughter Aniyah.

That's when he was involved in a road rage incident on I-95.

Investigators say Fraser was involved in a fight with two brothers Mario Rene Briceno and Jose Rene Briceno Escobar inside.

Detectives say the two brothers stabbed Fraser to death.

Detectives questioned the pair and released them.

"That is not fair. They're walking around free and my son is dead."

The Florida Highway Patrol said the investigation is ongoing. Detectives said Fraser brandished a gun.

Mcnealy says her son had a license for that gun and would never harm anyone.

The family still has no answers.

"I have a death certificate that says homicide. That's it," said Mcnealy.

An FHP spokesperson says detectives have not ruled anything out including self-defense.
