MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - The family of two people killed in a fatal wreck involving a Memphis Police officer say they still can't get answers from investigators, nearly 2 months after the crash.
Deloris Epps and her 13-year-old daughter Mackala Ross were killed August 26th, and now dozens of family members are calling for police to release more details. Michael Ross, Mackala's dad, was driving and remains in the hospital.
"A day doesn't go by that we don't think about it, both of them," said Lettie Murphy, Epps' sister.
Police say the two were killed when a speeding Memphis Police patrol car crashed into them on Crump Boulevard.
Days later, Memphis Mayor A C Wharton and Police Director Toney Armstrong held a news conference.
"There have been an unacceptable number of incidents involving city vehicles, particularly police vehicles," Mayor Wharton said at the time. Within the last two weeks, at least four MPD patrol cars have been involved in wrecks.
Since, the family says it hasn't heard much from police.
"We are not hearing anything, they are not telling us anything, so we just want answers," said Verina Holts, Michael Ross's sister.
On Saturday night, dozens turned out for a prayer service and candlelight vigil in South Memphis to call for answers from police.
"We just want the truth to come out, that's all," said Murphy.
The family says it has hired a lawyer to explore its options as it awaits the results of MPD's investigation.
Police say that investigation is ongoing.
"We just want the truth to come out, that's all." a family member said.
