LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The father of a murdered 14-year-old still has no answers about his son's death. Two weeks after Trey Zwicker was killed, loved ones are paying tribute in a unique way.
Terry Zwicker says he has no peace in his son's murder: "Every second, every time I look out the window. Every time I pause, I look up and say I love you and I miss you."
On May 11th, students found Trey covered in blood near Liberty High School. "The investigators are keeping in contact with me," he says, "but unfortunately they are not releasing any of the details they've gotten in the case."
There have been no arrests, not even the release of an exact cause of death, though Terry believes Trey was the victim of a savage beating.
He says, "It just wasn't my son's face, and that's about all I can tell you about it. It's still an image that if I close my eyes I can see it and it's horrific."
When Terry closes his eyes he can also remembers the best of Trey -- a smile a mile long, always willing to help, and a passion for professional wrestling.
We would wrestle on the floor and he was getting too big, but we still did it and it was great," Terry says.
Trey had tickets to attend an Ohio Valley Wrestling show with his father just three days after his death, so the guys at OVW are giving Trey one last show.
"When I heard what happened it was so sad so sad," OVW wrestler and former WWE superstar Cliff Compton says. He coordinated the event. He adds, "All the money for the ticket sales goes right to the family, so it's going to be awesome."
Terry explains, "It means so much to me and my family. I don't think I could ever thank the guy."
So Cliff and his comrades will take to the ring and fight for a bigger cause: "We have a personal goal to make Mr. Zwicker smile, 'cause we know if he's smiling Trey's off in a better place smiling right back at him."
It's helping a family heal from a young life taken too soon. Terry says, "Yeah, hell, be there, he's watching down on all of us right now."
OVW is a premier independent wrestling organization and many of their past and present stars have wrestled on the national scene.
The benefit is Friday night at Davis Arena, 4400 Shepherdsville Road Belltime is 7:30 and tickets cost $10.
