Waldon's Family Holds Out Hope That Someone Will Come Forward with Information

    Four years ago Wednesday, a Wichita Falls man died, an assault victim who was left unconscious at his home. Wednesday night, family and friends of Hulan Dewayne Waldon held a memorial, honoring his life that was cut short by an unknown assailant. Police say he was struck on the head on his front porch in 2008, but police have no leads on a suspect.
    Waldon's family says they are finally at peace with his death, but they continue to hope and pray that this crime will soon be solved.
    On the night of February 21, 2008 Benetta Johnson came home from work, only to find police lights flashing near her brother's house.
    "I speeded up and as I pass the corner I saw it wasn't at my momma's house it was around this way and my heart just sank because i knew my brother lived around here," said Johnson, Dewayne's sister.
        47-year old Dewayne Waldon was found unconscious on his porch on Dallas Street. Police say he'd been struck on the head,  injuries that would lead to his death the next evening. And four years later the family still looks to have two questions answered; Who? And why?
    "Somebody should just step up one day, their conscious will get to them bad enough and they'll say something, but somebody knows. I'm not giving up," said Johnson.
    Waldon, who was a father, an uncle, and a son, was described as a man with a big heart and always willing to help others. His family says they will never give up hope that someone out there will speak up about that night.
    "It's going to be okay, it might not be right now, but it's going,  we're going to find out," said Dewayne's mother Janice Waldon.   
    The family released balloons Wednesday night, in honor of Dewayne.
    Police and family continue to ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 322- 9888.
