A teenager is shot in the face and killed. One month later, no arrests have been made.
The victim's grandparents aren't giving up the fight for justice.
Tony and Jeane Lato try to visit Gianni Corsentino in the cemetery every day.
A cross stands as a temporary marker until the gravestone can be put in place.
Days after his 18th birthday in June, Corsentino was shot outside a Maverik gas station near Cactus and Bermuda.
"Gianni was in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people," Jeane Lato said.
It hasn't gotten easier for the grandparents who raised him like a son.
"It's very difficult for me to come here and see him knowing that he's down there and not up here with us," Jeane Lato said.
There is hope for justice.
The suspected killers were caught on the gas station security cameras.
The Latos are confident the pair will be found.
