The family of a Grand Coteau man who was murdered in April says they're scared, knowing his killer has not yet been caught.

Twenty-nine-year-old Keaven Breaux was shot and killed at his home on Bellemin Street the morning of April 8.

"It happened so fast. I just heard, like, a shot. And so, I was startled," said Keaven's fiancée Meagan Livings.

Livings says she and their two daughters were inside the home when it happened.

"I feel like I'm dreaming. It feels like a dream. It doesn't feel real," sad Livings.

Police say the shooting was the result of an attempted armed robbery. Keaven's family believes whoever killed him targeted him.

"They knew he was going to work that morning," said the victim's aunt Pamela Corbin. "I believe it was someone that knew Keaven."

Three months later, there have been no arrests, and police haven't released any information about suspects.

In April, Grand Coteau police said they found a car that had been stolen and they were working to see if it was connected to the murder.

The family says officers have told them recently they are awaiting DNA results.

"I'm scared. My kids are scared for my life, for our lives. We saw them. We were there. They've seen our faces," sad Givings.

Keaven's mother Yolanda Breaux says it's been hardest for his three daughters.

"With him not being here anymore, it's like they're lost without their dad," lamented Yolanda.

His aunt Pamela Corbin is still trying to get used to Keaven not being around.

"I feel incomplete without him. I know life will never be the same. It will never be the same," said Corbin.

The family is hoping anyone with information about the case will come forward.
