Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is calling on his hometown of Akron to help find the person who shot and killed 37-year-old Ericka Weems, the sister of his childhood friend and Cleveland Cavaliers director of scouting Brandon Weems.
'AKRON OHIO!! My brother's sister was murdered this past weekend in her home!' James tweeted Wednesday.
'My brother family need answers to why and by whom. My city I need y'all to go to work and find out who did this awful, shameful, disgusting thing to such a caring, loving angel!'
Family members found Ericka Weems's body inside her Akron, Ohio home on Monday afternoon, according to News5Cleveland.com. She had a gunshot wound to the head, and the case is being investigated as murder, according to the Summit County Medical Examiner.
The police currently have no suspects.
