JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- There's only one thing that a some locals want for Christmas, justice for unsolved murder victims in Jacksonville.

"It's been really hard, seven months and I haven't got any answers," said the Michael England's mother, Bridget Massie.

England was killed in a hit and run this year.

The families of Michael England, Megan Simmons, Jazmin Shelton and Amber Bass say they have gone months without hearing of any leads in their families unsolved murder cases.

The group says now, they are reaching out to the public and the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office as a plea before Christmas.

"As an aunt, not enough is not being done I think more can be done," said Megan Simmons aunt, Neta Sessions.

So they grabbed signs and marched around the Duval County Courthouse sharing their stories with anyone who would listen, and hopefully put killers behind bars.

"If you have any compassion please come forward I hope the guilt eats you up," said Sessions.

"I want to believe you lose sleep at night like our family does I want to feel like your stressed and anxious thinking, 'Oh my God,' someone's going to find out," said Amber Bass's sister, Robin Lezcano.

Lezcano says someone will find out who committed these four murders because the families will never stop fighting for justice.

Action News reached out to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office for comment, we are waiting for a call back.
