A Lexington father was one of the city’s 34 homicide victims in 2020.
Darell Price-Moberly’s murder is also still unsolved, but his family and detectives say it doesn’t have to be. Several people saw what happened. They just need one to come forward with that anonymous tip that puts his case to rest.
“What happened to my brother? Why did this happen?,” asks Price’s older sister Soraya Moberly. 10 months later, she’s still no closer to finding out what really happened the morning of July 11, 2020 in the 500 block of Chestnut Street.
“There are a lot of family members and parents out here that know who’s done this to my brother or other people’s families and are not sticking up or reaching out or anything and it’s not right,” Moberly said.
She told Crime Stoppers reporter Kristen Pflum she still remembers the morning their family got the phone call.
“My sister said, brother has been shot, brother has been shot. So I’m texting my brother on the phone, were you hit bad?”
The 31-year old wouldn’t survive his injuries. He died shortly after arriving at UK Hospital.
Moberly has learned to cope with the pain and anger of losing her brother to gun violence. The only remedy, she says, will be the phone call from detectives with good news about Darell’s case.
“It’s in the community’s hands to a great extent,” said Lexington Police Detective Anthony Delimpo. “The pieces are out there. We know they’re out there. Somebody, someone observed it and at this point, we need the community’s help to solve this crime.”
“Please know that this is not snitching,” Moberly says. “This is helping a family get justice for their family. Please, please, please, please tell what you saw.”
