DECATUR, Ga. -

This week marks seven years since an Army veteran was found shot and killed in a Decatur neighborhood. Though it's now considered a cold case, the victim's family is not giving up on getting justice.

A homeowner found 29-year-old Daymond Bell shot to death on Glen Echo Drive in Decatur in 2006. Daymond still had his money, ID, credit card and cell phone on him.

Investigators found the car that Bell was driving on the night of his death in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood -- about a block away from the crime scene.

Seven years later, police have made no arrests, have no clues on a motive and have very few leads in the case.

"To try to make the two connection is very difficult and it's been baffling to me and my family," said Daymond's mother, Gwen Bell. She hopes a trip back to the scene will jog someone's memory.

"The not knowing has been the most difficult part of this tragedy," said Gwen Bell. "We pray that one day somebody will say something. I believe that somebody saw something and they know."

Daymond Bell's family is offering a $3,000 reward for any information that could help solve the murder.
