Family holds rally for deceased son, still looking for answers
JACKSONVILLE, Onslow County - Monica Jones and her family have been living out a nightmare for the past seven months. Jones' oldest son, Clifton "Tre'" McFadden, went missing in the early hours of the morning of his 24th birthday. His body was recovered a week later on May 23rd.
"We don't know when he died, we don't know what happened that night, only those three men do," said Kat Howell, a friend who has been helping the Jones family through the grieving process.
According to the Sheriff's office, McFadden was in a car with three other men the night of his disappearance. He jumped out of the car that was traveling approximately 50-60 miles per hour. The autopsy says the manner of his death cannot be determined but that he suffered blunt force injuries to his head.
Howell and Jones think there's more to the story, which is why they continue to hold rallies, make signs, and search for answers.
"Why not now. You know my son is gone and he's never coming back. So any day is a good day to protest. I have all the time in the world. His time has run out. And I'm gonna be protesting and fighting for him until mine runs out," said Jones.
Jones is still offering a reward of $2,500 for anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest of the three men her son was in the car with.
