JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The relatives of four high-profile Jacksonville murder victims are pressuring the public for information.

They stood outside the Duval County Courthouse on Tuesday and said anyone who knows something about their loved ones' cases should come forward.

It's been several months since the deaths of Megan Simmons, 14, Jazmine Shelton, 13, Michael England, 25, and Amber Bass, 22.

Simmons, Shelton and Bass all died from gunfire earlier this year, but no one's been arrested and police said they have no suspects.
England died in a hit-and-run, which police also have not solved.
England's mother, Bridget Massie, said, "I'm out here to raise awareness and hopefully keep their names alive and get some type of justice for all of us."

Simmons' aunt, Neta Sessions, said, "People need to realize. Put yourself in our shoes and see how we feel that one of our family members were taken away just spending the night at a friend's house, something innocent."

Bass' sister, Robin Lezcano, said, "Everyday there are shootings and murders and it's not getting better. You know, it's up to the public to feel that conviction that it's their civic duty."

Rewards remain in effect for these cases.

If you have any information, you're urged to call First Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
