Lisa Castro and her family are hoping the public can help Euclid police catch the two people responsible for the murder of her 18-year-old son Israel Castro.

Euclid police report Castro was shot and killed inside his mothers's E. 250 Street home on Dec. 15, after the suspects apparently broke though a kitchen window to get in to the home.

The Castro family told News 5 they believe the suspects were looking for cash during the deadly home invasion, because their son had just been paid and cashed his paycheck.

Dwayne Castro said the suspect fled on foot, as he did all he could to save his son's life.

"I did CPR to him, I had to see him take his last breath," said Castro.

"I don't never want to go through that again.  It's something that I can't believe that a father had to go through "

Lisa Castro said she hopes someone will come forward with information about her son's murder, and contact Euclid police.

"My oldest son came running in the room, and he was screaming," said Lisa  "And then he said there's somebody in the house with a gun."

"He was a good person, he didn't bother nobody.  he worked two jobs.  He was only 18 years old, he didn't even get to live his life."

"Please just turn yourself in, because you know this is not right. You didn't have to do that to my son."

The Castro family has set-up a family fund in support of the memory of their son.
