Grieving mom hopes that aerial banner will help find the man who murdered her son, Brandon Lee Evans.

Those going about their daily business on Saturday, Aug. 29 in the Bay Area might find a curious message in the sky. The aerial banner flying that day will read simply, "Who Killed my Son? …".

The banner is one more effort on the part of Christine Evans to bring justice to her son's memory. Brandon Lee Evans, a 20-year-old music student who had recently transplanted to San Francisco from San Diego, was gunned down on Nov. 29, 2008 when he left a group of friends he was with in Golden Gate Park to retrieve his cell phone from his car. His killer is unknown.

"I will not stop until my last breath to find out who killed by beautiful loving Brandon," Evans said. "There must be someone, somewhere, who knows who killed him."

Evans is working tirelessly to find her son's killer. She visits San Francisco monthly to pass out fliers and speak with detectives. She has tried to promote the $25,000 reward that is being offered to the person who can help find his killer. She tells his story to anyone who will listen.

"My son was a good kid and touched many lives," Evans said.

Though little is known about the crime, Evans said that her son went to his car to get his cell phone during the concert at Golden Gate Park. His cell phone and sweatshirt were taken and he was found shot in the back. He died en route to the hospital.

The banner will fly over the following areas on Aug. 29 between 2 and 4 p.m.:

  • Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival in Golden Gate Park
  • Fillmore Street and Eddy Street
  • Bay Bridge
  • Golden Gate Bridge
  • Ocean Beach
  • Pier 39
  • Highways 280 and 101

Anyone with information about the crime is urged to contact SF Police Inspector Brian Delahunty at 415-553-1336 or email him at brian(dot)delahunty(at)sfgov(dot)org.
