Family says not knowing is the worse pain

Posted: Updated:

Family and friends of a man murdered and left in the middle of a City of Scott roadway are still looking for answers months after his death. Sunday, those closet to Craig Dural visited him, on what would have been his 24th birthday. They watched with heavy hearts as his two young sons played near his grave.

"It doesn't feel real," said Craig's mom, Paula Dural.

Craig's body was discovered on July 5th at 5am in the morning by police officers on West Willow Road west of Ambassador Caffery Parkway. His cause of death was determined to be by gunshot, although it has not been released how many times he was shot.

Fiancee Dominique Alexander said they were sickened by the news. "It was a hard pill to swallow. No matter what he did, he didn't deserve that."

Paul, Alexander, uncles and friends described Craig as a loner who loved his friends and family, especially his two sons and daughter. They are hoping someone will come forward with information.

"We heard about a tan SUV," Alexander said. "Police are trying to figure out if it has something to do with the crime."

Scott City Police are looking for a light colored Chevrolet SUV 2000 or newer model, driven by a subject wearing a red shirt. While searching for the vehicle, Chief of Police Chad Leger said, "We are following some good tips we received last week that look promising."

In the meantime, Craig's family waits. Alexander faces the task of raising three children under the age of five without a father.

Mom Paula said, "We are not angry with who did it."

Alexander added, "They will find you though. Just turn yourself in."

If anyone has any information in reference to possibly identifying the person or vehicle is asked to contact Scott City Police Investigators at 233-3715 or Lafayette Crime Stoppers at 232-8477.
