FORT PIERCE, Fla. — Two Treasure Coast Families want answers and justice for those responsible for killing their loved ones.

Martin Reyes and Elizabeth Granados were killed two years ago.

Reyes was shot and killed June 2, 2019, in his vehicle off Delaware Avenue in Fort Pierce.

Granados was shot and killed Feb. 20, 2019, in the 100 block of Wisteria Avenue in Fort Pierce. She was pronounced dead at the scene. She left behind children for her mother and sister to look after.

Family and friends of two homicide victims met Saturday at Dreamland Park in Fort Pierce to share their pain and struggle for answers.

"Looking for justice. For those people not to be walking on the streets, free, like nothing and go destroy more families. They destroyed my family," said Leticia Granados, Elizabeth's mother.

Reyes' mother said her 31-year-old son was a lovable guy who left behind two children. She said it has taken this long for her to be able to talk about her heartache.

"It's going on almost two years," said Lisa Reyes. "My son was actually gunned down right up the road here on Delaware. Never made it out of the vehicle. Shot to death in cold blood, basically. Holidays and events, and you live through it day by day. Sometimes good days and sometimes bad day."

It's a tragic incident that has brought two families together to seek answers. They are hoping the community will speak up and help them so they can have some sort of closure.

"Please, I beg them to say who killed my daughter," said Granados.

Anyone with information can call Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at 800-273-TIPS (8477).
