A funeral was held for 18-year-old De’William Binion who was hit and killed in a November 17 hit and run that took place on highway 373 in Columbus.

The funeral was held at Prairie Point Baptist Church in Macon as friends and family members gathered to see the teen for the last time.

Many family members wore red hoodies to the event because that was Binion’s favorite color and piece of clothing.

According to the Mississippi Highway Patrol, the investigation is still ongoing, with no current suspects in custody.

"My daily prayer is that we get closure and I think if we could get that closure with the person that actually did this, I could forgive and we can start healing," said Latoshae Martin, Binion’s Aunt.
