Murder Victim Remembered One Year Later

It was one year ago that 39-year-old Robert Nash was shot to death in an Omaha bar. His family still feels the pain of the loss and organized a vigil Thursday night to remember him.

The gathering at 30th and Spaulding was not just to honor Nash, but to also send a message to the community and to the people they say witnessed the killing of their loved one.

Nash was shot to death inside the Spaulding Bar on December 6, 2011. His sister Regina still relives what happened that day. "I watched them shoot my brother Robert, I watched them, ain’t no doubt in my mind. I was there."

Regina claims the same man who killed Robert also shot and killed her brother Davon Nash a few months earlier. Regina says police botched the case and no one has paid for the murders. “If my brother is dead and this man still walking the streets with a gun, you think he ain’t gonna do it again. I lost both my brothers and the police ain’t helping us.” Regina says there were people in the bar that day who saw what happened, but they won’t talk to police.

“Today I decided I’m going to love my brother, I'm going to mourn my brother and I'm going to take care of my brother’s kids." Regina says she is not afraid. She misses her brothers and knows who is responsible for their deaths. "I know I just want everybody else here to know that I know and good is gonna getcha.”
