Lori Holstein is heartbroken. She was getting married Sept. 23 to 25-year-old Ladarrious Howze.

But Howze was shot and killed on Spruce Court Saturday afternoon.

And now police say they don't know of any suspects or a motive.

Holstein said Howze was a hard-working factory worker who cherished his three young children, including a four-month-old baby girl.

“He was a great father," she said. "If he wasn't at work, the majority of the time he was at home with his family.
We were always doing family things. He was my best friend. So loyal to his family."

Holstein is hoping, pleading that someone comes forward with a tip about the case.

"Somebody please if you heard something, the smallest little thing please, anything, anybody may know please call police for these kids, they just lost their father, they're going to grow up without him," Holstein said.

Holstein is desperate for answers, for an arrest and for justice.

"We just want some kind of information, something to go off of, their father was taken from his brand new children. I lost the love of my life. I don't know how I am going to get by without him,” Holstein said.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Cleveland police at 216-623-5464.
