(KHNL) It's been a month since 31-year-old Jason Nam was shot and killed in front of his Makiki home, and his loved ones are still looking for answers.

Police have been talking to witnesses and following up on tips, but so far, they have not made any arrests.

Those close to Nam say they need closure and they're asking for the public's help.

"As for his family and my family we need closure, the only way we can get closure is if these men are brought to justice," said Sandra Pratt, Nam's girlfriend of 14 years.

On March 10 around 4 pm, suspects wearing red bandanas confronted Nam outside of his home on South Beretania. They shot him in the neck and then drove away.

Later that night, police found the vehicle used by the three suspects. It had been set on fire in Mililani. Police are now asking for more witnesses to come forward. They'd also like the person who was in the car at the crime scene to call them again. That witness has cooperated before, but they need more answers.

"He could be the shooter, he could be just part of the car," said Kim Capllonch with CrimeStoppers.

Since his death, rumors have emerged about Nam possibly leading a double life. But Pratt says her boyfriend wasn't into drugs or gambling and didn't have any enemies. Police say they still don't have a motive.

"He had so much life in him, it wasn't his time to go," said Pratt.

Funeral services for Nam will be held on April 15 at 9:30 am at Hawaii Memorial Park Mortuary.
