As the search continues for his killer, the family of Chong Moua Yang laid him to rest.

It's been 31 days since the 68-year- old was found shot in Bath Township with his wallet and backpack missing. He was hunting on state late and wearing hunter's orange. Police are calling his death suspicious.

The funeral was three days and done in traditional Hmong Culture. On Monday, his family remembered who he was and what he did for so many as they took him to the cemetery. They said they are still devastated about his death and just want answers. In addition, his children added that although he has reached his final resting place, that doesn't mean they will stop the search for their father's killer.

"My dad wasn't the only one that we lost during the opening season and hunting season, for gun season actually. The only difference is people took responsibility and called in and did their best and help those victims. The only difference is my dad, the person who did this to my dad never came forward, never manned up," Houa Yang, Chong Yang's son said.

The family has a Facebook page called "Orange Justice" where they post updates and promote hunter's safety. They said they haven't given up faith for justice.

There is an $8,500 reward for information on his death. If you know anything, call Bath Township police at (517) 641-6271.
