ST. LOUIS ( -- Robbie Robinson says he’s one of hundreds of St. Louis families members that are waiting for answers in unsolved murder cases of their loved ones.

“I’m going to get justice, I didn’t get this gavel with my name on it, just to get it,” said Robinson.  

Robinson says his son, 29-year-old Breyon Robinson was killed when his body was found burned in a North City dumpster nearly two years ago.

“I’m going to get justice,” he said.

Since his son’s death, he’s been on a quest for justice.

He's met with police and is getting a sign in place along Highway 270.

“It'll keep his name out there,” said Robinson.  

News 4 talked to Robinson on his concerns last year when he had issues in how St. Louis Metropolitan Police detectives were handling his son’s case.

The story sparked an investigation and it was discovered that the detective was reassigned.

“The detectives I have now, I respect them and they respect me, makes a big difference,” he said.  

Numbers from SLMPD of the 160 homicide cases reported so far this year--- 116 remain open.

The year Breyon was killed, police investigated 187 homicides and 128 remain open for 2017.

CrimeStoppers issued an award of yo to $5,000 for anyone that has information about the shooting.
