Her husband, 74-year-old Richard Gus Brown, a deacon at church in Raleigh, N.C., was returning home from church Tuesday night when he was shot to death while checking his mail.

Police don't have a motive in Brown's shooting but they have spent hours collecting evidence at the scene of his shooting death.

"To me, I cannot get any type of closure until I see the person that did this," Evelyn Brown said. "How do you just kill somebody?"
