ANCHORAGE -

On Saturday afternoon, dozens of family, friends and community members gathered outside of the Bear Tooth Theater Pub to create awareness and make a plea to the public for any information that might lead to the arrest of those responsible for the death of 31-year old Aylett Hanson.

For several hours, dozens placed fliers on windshields and canvassed the Spenard area with pictures of Hanson's face, hoping someone will come forward with any information leading to the arrest of whoever is responsible for his murder.

"We're just hoping that by now somebody has heard something or maybe saw something that day and just didn't call it in," said Brittany Hales, Hanson's cousin.

"We have no leads," said Melia Strickler, Hanson's sister.  "We're really confused considering it was in the middle of the parking lot in the middle of the day."

In late January, the body of Hanson was found inside his vehicle in a Spenard area parking lot.  His death is being investigated as a homicide, but after more than 2 months, the family says the investigation has hit a wall.

"We know that there's not really any closure in the situation, but at least having someone serving time or paying for their crime would make a big difference to our family," Hales said.

Saturday's event was put together by Seeking Alaska's Missing, an organization founded 2 years ago to help find the killer of Samantha Koenig.

Anchorage Police and family members ask that if anyone has information regarding the investigation to call APD at 786-8900 or Crime Stoppers at 561-STOP to remain anonymous.
