A Facebook feud is putting salt in the wound for a valley family devastated by a deadly hit-and-run. 
55-year-old Clay Stampley Sr. was left for dead a week and a half ago near Cheyenne Avenue and Simmons Street. His killer is still on the loose. The victim's family has been coming to 13 Action News upset about a number of things. First, the memorial they made for Stampley was destroyed. Now, they are in a Facebook war with the suspect's family.
"You don't even know what the (expletive) is going on," said the sister of suspect Qaadir Issam Amin in a Facebook video that has since been deleted. "I'm just really getting tired of y'all with that (expletive). If you want to know something, ask."
Qaadir Issam Amin is suspected of running a red light, smashing into Clay Stampley's truck, and running from the scene, leaving Stampley to die in the street. North Las Vegas Police made Issam Amin a suspect last week, but he's been hiding since the fatal crash.
"Just keep running if you want to," said the victim's son Clayton Stampley Jr. "It will be ok."
Even though the suspect has been on the run, his family has been far from quiet. They've reportedly been posting statuses on Facebook, as well as the video.
The victim's son and other family members can't believe this is the type of reaction they are getting since they are the ones who lost a loved one.
"You can't apologize and make a video apologizing and then after you apologize, you make a threat, so everything that you said, before, it's void," said the victim's cousin Veronica Dillard.
"They can feel how they want to feel and do what they want to do," said the victim's son, Clay Stampley Jr. "The only thing that matters to me is my family laying my father to rest and that's all that matters to me. They mean nothing to me."
13 Action News reached out to the suspect's family members. Some of them never got back to us and some of them told us to go away.
