EAGLE POINT, Ore.- Nearly two weeks after 33-year-old Matthew Graves was shot and killed by police, his family still has more questions than answers. The investigation into Grave's death is continuing as the Jackson County District Attorney digs into the events of that night.

Vicki Graves, Matthew's mother, tells NewsWatch12 she would trade places with Matt if she could.
Graves says, "I hope that he didn't die in fear, or a lot of pain, I hope he didn't do that, I hope whatever happened was quick." 

Court documents show Matthew Graves did have a history in an out of jail. His mother Vicki says there was a time where he "got in with a few people that were not for his highest good and you know that was a dark period."

Now sober, Matthew was recently diagnosed with schizophrenia. 
Graves mentioned, "I do believe he’s in a better place where he’s at now he doesn’t have schizophrenia, he doesn’t have any of those voices."

Now the Graves family is looking for answers. 
District Attorney Beth Heckert says a grand jury trial date is not set at this time.
