Victim’s family still looking for answers in 2013 homicide

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — A family is pleading for answers to find out who killed their loved one back on October 27, 2013.

Investigators told CBS42 that Benjamin Sloan was shot and killed after he was found in his SUV on the 300 block of 83rd Street North. Investigators said the motive appears to be robbery.

“They shot him in the neck and left him to die,” said Joel Sloan, the victim’s brother. “That individual has been able to get up, eat breakfast, go to work see their loved ones for three and a half years and we have been left with a hole in our family and hole in my heart.”

The rest of the family is still mourning the death of the young father.

“He was a very outgoing well loved, and was a good looking kid,” said Jim Sloan, the victim’s father. “Nothing can describe what that felt like, the loss is more than I can put into words.”

Sloan’s father has a message to anyone that has any information.

“Let’s give that family some closure and come forward and tell the police what you know,” said Sloan.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call Crimestoppers at 254-7777.
