A memorial still sits on the steps of the Locust Street apartment in New Bedford, just steps away from where 32-year-old Tracy Montiero was killed. He was shot to death in his own driveway in November 2011. His murder is still unsolved.
"I saw him laying there and he wasn't alive and my life stopped," Tiffany Lewis said.
Lewis knows a thing or two about waiting. She has been doing it ever since she heard the shots that killed her boyfriend, searching for who pulled the trigger.
"I guess you learn how to cope better," Lewis said. "But it kills me knowing that nobody's paying for this."
Police say the investigation into Montiero's death is still ongoing. They tell Lewis they are still searching through Montiero's phone records. She is frustrated, but she has not given up hope.
"I just want to know why," Lewis said. "I want to know the reason behind it."
Lewis has since moved out of the apartment they shared, and she just got through her first Thanksgiving without him, but she cannot imagine another holiday without knowing whose responsible.
"It's so much harder not having justice for him," Lewis said. "If anybody knows anything, even this littlest thing that could help the case, please call police."
