During a vigil to mark the painful anniversary, Shatonya Webb, the mother of his children, said through tears that she misses him every day.

“I just wish he was still here with my children,” Webb said during a vigil.

Fields’ friends and family released blue balloons in honor of the man Webb described as a reliable and loving father.

Detectives were asking anyone with information about the case to call 954-828-6093 or Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
