ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of family and friends gathered to remember Justin King. Words couldn't describe the pain that was felt Friday night as Justin King's family and friends came together to remember his life.

The case of Justin King has left many with heavy hearts, especially his mother.

A mother's biggest fear and the last thing 44-year-old Pam King Davis wanted was to have to bury her 24-year-old son.

Her only son - her best friend.

"My baby didn't deserve this and I didn't either this is my only child and I just don't know what to do," said Davis.

Justin King's body was found late Sunday evening near east Albany railroad tracks.

The coroner says he had multiple gunshots so close that the bullets went through him.

"Did he have anyone that seemed like they were out to get him? I promise you ma'am I cannot say that. My son was a joyful young man. I wanted to do was smile, he want to see you smile," said Davis.

It was just two days after Davis' wedding day that she lost her son.

Davis had no clue she would be shedding sad tears after one of the happiest days of her life.

"I'm not resting, at nighttime I can't get no rest. When I go to sleep all I see is his face," said Justin's grandmother Pauline King.

And his smile are memories she holds dear.

King's family finds solace in God in knowing they will get exactly what's on their shirts: Justice for Justin.

"Whoever did that kind of mess they don't deserve to be on this earth, said Justin's aunt Teresa King.

The family still has many questions left unanswered.
