Caldwell says in a public service announcement that will be broadcast in the Chicago area this week.

“I am John Walsh, the father of a murdered child, and I have been chasing fugitives and asking people to make a difference for over 40 years,” the “America’s Most Wanted” host said in a public service announcement. “This family needs justice. We don’t need to know your name. You’ll get the reward.”
It’s been two months since Christian was fatally shot at 11,400 block on S. Vincennes Ave while he was out with his friends.
Christian was one out of three people who were killed that evening. The two other victims – a 31-year-old man and a 25-year-old female Christian that Christian does not know – were injured, according to the Chicago Police Department.
“It’s been a hell of two months… when I think about it and reflect on it, I’m on the verge of tears,” Caldwell told Fox News Digital on Wednesday. “I still can’t believe my little brother was killed. I think about him every day. I get calls from family members who call me only to cry…on a regular basis.”
Caldwell said his goal now was to “do justice” to Christian and use his platform “to bring justice to victims of other crimes that have occurred in Chicago,” but later added that waiting for answers in his brother’s case is a “web of misery.”
