Help find my son's killer

On Sunday, April 29 in 2007 my son Aaron Anthony Breaux was murdered while standing in front of our home on Bell St. in Fremont waiting for a friend to pick him up, between 8:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. He was only 19 years old. No arrests were ever made and to this day no witnesses have come forward. We strongly believe that someone saw what happened to my son as it was still daylight and generally a high traffic street.

For the past three years we have been gathering on the corner of Fremont Boulevard and Mowry Avenue in Fremont on countless Sundays, the anniversary of his murder and on Aaron's birthday, holding signs, banners and passing out reward flyers trying to raise awareness, keep his memory alive and what happened to him in the public's eye. No parent should ever have to suffer the loss of their child and the past three years have been nothing short of unbearable.

We are hoping that the reward of $60,000 will prompt a response from a witness or other party with knowledge of my son's murder to come forward with valuable information needed to make an arrest of the person(s) responsible for Aaron's murder. Our family has raised $10,000 through car washes, donations from the public and my co-workers at Washington Hospital where I work. The other $50,000.00 is being offered by the Governor of California, requested by the Fremont Police Department.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Fremont Police Department at (510) 790-6900 or you can call the "silent witness hotline" at (510) 494-4856, your call will remain anonymous.
