Kenny Ring, 24, died Monday from head trauma he suffered during a robbery at a Domino's Pizza in Knightdale.
Thursday his family released a statement to the public, urging for help in solving the case.
Statement from Andrew Goins, Kim, Dan and Casey Ring:
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our community, friends and family for the outpouring of support during this difficult time. We would especially like to recognize Mark Kwiatkowski, Duane Graupman, Pat and Donica O'Leary, personnel at WakeMed, our family here and in Pennsylvania who wanted so much to help, and all of Kenny's friends for their special support and love for Kenny.
Kenny was a giving and loving person who wanted nothing more than to help his coworkers and friends, and we cannot let his memory die by letting this crime go unsolved. We need your help. This attack was not only an attack on Kenny, but an attack on the Knightdale community and the surrounding areas. To allow these individuals to continue to be free in this area would be an abomination to Kenny's memory and compromise the safety of everyone in this community.
The Knightdale Police Department and all supporting organizations continue to go above and beyond to bring Kenny's attackers to justice, but they cannot solve this case alone. We are appealing to the community for help. If you have any information that could help the police, please call the Knightdale Police Department at (919) 217-2261 or Eastern Wake Crime Stoppers at 366-CRIM(E). A reward fund, currently valued at more than $6,000, has also been set up through Eastern Wake Crimestoppers. To make a contribution, send your check to: Eastern Wake Crimestoppers, C/O BB&T Zebulon, 1204 N. Arendell Ave., Zebulon, N.C. 27597.
Kenny was recently promoted to the position of assistant manager and was working late last Friday night when police say someone entered the restaurant.
Just after midnight, a delivery driver got back from his last call to find Kenny unconscious inside the store.
Police have not determined what kind of weapon was used nor have they named any suspect.
On Tuesday, authorities seized several items from Ring's residence.
They took; paper writings, bills, bank statements, insurance papers, hand written notes, a diary, a CD with hand writing on it and a car charger.
Police also found three marijuana pipes and a cigerette box with marijuana stem, seeds and shake.
