The week before Thanksgiving, Texas Equusearch volunteers recovered the body of 23-year-old Brandon Rosales, in Mumford. Rosales' body was just a mile from where his SUV had been found days earlier, burning in a desolate oil patch.

Investigators say Brandon was shot twice in the head, and his body was partially burned.

"This what they did, my son didn't deserve this," said Brandon's mother, Sally Rodriguez.

For Rodriguez, its been 10 weeks without answers, 10 weeks of agony.

"Our Christmas, my New Year's, its like a part of my life was taken from me," Rodriguez

Investigators have leads, but have made no arrests in Brandon's murder.

"At least once or twice a week I call them and sometimes I just feel- and I break down and cry and I tell him you know I'm sorry if I bother ya'll but this is my child, and I need justice for my son," said Rodriguez.

The family has contacted crime shows "America's Most Wanted," and "Forensic Files."

"We're trying to get anyone involved in my son's case, for them to get caught," said Rodriguez.

Who should be caught, is the question. On the night he went missing, the family knows Brandon was threatened at a party behind El Tapatio bar, because he called his cousin to pick him up.

Brandon later returned for his car, and attended another party at The Oaks Apartments.

"But after that, nobody knows what happened to him," said Rosales' cousin Christina Delgado.

However, Sally Rodriguez believes someone knows, and says she's going to do everything she can to find them.

"I made a promise to my son, that I will not give up, until I see justice," said Rodriguez.
