Mothers of slain boys delivering meals to raise reward money

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Two mothers whose young sons were shot and killed are hoping time in the kitchen will help bring answers. The women are making meals in an effort to to raise reward money.

Police haven't made any arrests in the case and it's why the women said they're taking their please to the public, one plate at at time.

Aishah Coppage and her sister both lost their sons in a drive-by shooting in August. Someone fired bullets into the house where 8-year-old Montell Ross and 9-year-old Jayden Ugwuh were spending time with family members. The young cousins died.

Coppage said, "Just to know that somebody is out there that would take a life with no questions asked."

It's been weeks and the moms said they don't have any answers. They've taken it upon themselves to raise reward money for the person who comes forward with information.

Coppage said, "We've never been in this situation before so, but in the past, from TV or people's advice, they say do you have any reward money, because reward money brings to speak up."

This week and weekend, they're making and selling food, delivering it to people who place orders. "Spaghetti, green beans, coleslaw. Maybe we can get somebody to speak up if we offer cash."

Ten dollars for dinner might not seem like much, but to these women, it's a few dollars closer to finding out who killed their young boys.

Saturday is the last day they're taking and delivering orders. You can place an order by texting or calling (816) 469-1617.
