CAVE JUNCTION, Ore — Sunday marks the five month anniversary of a double fatal hit-and-run in Cave Junction.  There are no new leads on the case, but one victim’s family held a rally along Highway 199 in hopes of shedding new light onto the case.

The family of Jarred Houston said even though it has been five months, they are still grieving, and now more than ever, they just want answers to what happened on the night of October 30.

“I am a little angry and a little bitter because my brother was such a great man, and to know that he was taken off of this Earth in such a cruel way, and that this person didn’t even have enough integrity or honesty to come forward and say… I did this… I’m sorry,” said Sarah Houston, Jarred’s sister.

This is the second rally the family has held since Jarred’s death. This rally was primarily focused on letting the unknown suspect know it’s still not too late to turn themselves in.

More than 100 people marched down Highway 199 in Cave Junction at noon on Sunday. They were waving signs in hopes of raising awareness for the unsolved murder case.

Both 21-year-old Jarred Houston and 41-year-old Robert Calvin were killed after a car hit them, and then kept driving.  Currently, Oregon State Police have an investigator on the case, but there are no new leads, according to Jarred’s family.
