Police are still looking for 21-year-old Elvin Freeman Morrison of Hope Mills, 19-year-old Iona Deja Shameka Thomas and 18-year-old Yasheika Zikyra West.
"There are consequences to every action. You've got to pay for your sins. Period," Blackshire said. "They took me having more grandchildren from him. They took happiness."
Detectives are encouraging family and friends of West, Morrison and Thomas to have them turn themselves in.
"Every time I called, Detective Hall assured me they were working and doing everything they could. I believed him," Blackshire said. "If you do the crime, you've got to put the time in."
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the suspects is asked to contact Crimestoppers at (910) 483-TIPS (8477).
