Family Still Searching for Answers in Deonta Griffin Case

Posted: Updated:

GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (WZDX) - "I'm glad he's out of the lake but still, I want to know what happened that night," says Deonta Griffin's mother, Terron Dabbs.

Terron is just not certain that her son would've jumped from the Guntersville bridge.

"I know, I just feel in my heart from the start that he didn't survive it. I don't believe he jumped, I believe something else happened," says Dabbs.

Officials have not confirmed that Deonta's body was found in the lake. But, Terron knows it was her son.

"And they did get him. Everything he had on was still on him and everything. So, you think how many days it's been, it's been over 100 days, everything shoes, clothes, everything was still on."

Back in January, Boaz Police were attempting to serve a warrant on misdemeanor charges. That's when the chase ended on top of the Guntersville bridge.

"And I just feel like that we asking for justice and want answers and they're not cooperating with us. It's not fair, we've been through a whole lot," says Shewanda Gaddist, Deonta's aunt.

Jeffrey Havis, Deonta's father, "I know it's been 106 days and we just want to get closure."
