CAVE JUNCTION, Ore. — Almost three months after a fatal hit and run killed two men in Cave Junction, there are still no answers in the case.

The family of one of the victims, Jarred Houston, held a rally today hoping to bring their son’s death back to the forefront of the community’s mind.  Now almost three months later, Houston’s family says they want justice.

Jarred’s sister, Sarah Houston, said she wants to see the killer to come forward — and in the meantime — she wants law enforcement to work harder in finding the man responsible for Jarred’s death.

Back in October of 2013, Jarred Houston and Robert Calvin were both killed in a fatal hit and run.   According to police, the two men were arguing in the middle of Redwood Highway late at night, when an unknown car struck both men, and kept driving.

The case remains unsolved, but Houston’s family said they will not rest until they know the truth about what happened.

“Justice for Jarred” is what several signs read as nearly 100 Cave Junction residents rallied along Redwood Highway on Saturday in Jarred’s honor today.

“We’re here today to send a message to the community to law enforcement… and especially to the person responsible for taking my brother and Robert Calvin’s life… we just want them to know that we are not going to  stop until they turn themselves in or until law enforcement finds out who did this,” said Jarred’s sister Sarah Houston.

Family members said they are thankful for the support the community has given them throughout the grieving process.  The family said they do plan on holding more rallies and vigils every couple of months until the case is solved.

    I only met Jarred once but I could tell he was full of life and a fun-loving person from a
    great close family. I hope you all find peace and joy in his memory.
