Family grieves

Campbell Town murder victim Shane Barker's father, Robert, has passed away, never knowing who killed his son.

For the past 9 years, the family's been hoping for a breakthrough in the shooting murder of the 36 year old who was a well liked member of the community.

His brother Paul has spoken to WIN in the wake of their father's passing.

"If and when down the track there is an arrest, we will be looking to the sky for Dad as well now, not just a brother."

Shane's sister, Nikki Garwood, is more determined than ever to get to the bottom of the case.

"We are his advocate now to fight for answers, I've said a piece of Dad died with Shane the day he died, but he found the strength to carry on for the rest of his family, but ultimately the grief consumed him."
