A Mother's Grief and a Killer on the Loose

Maria Bravo cries in the Berkeley intersection at Emerson and Adeline streets where her son was shot and killed during an early morning robbery a year ago. Bravo, who is from Chile, visited the site where her son was murdered for the first time Oct. 4. She is asking that anyone who may have seen anything to contact police. (Photo by Doug Oakley)

It's been a year since Chilean national Adolfo Ignacio Celedón Bravo was killed on the streets of Berkeley but his family and authorities still hope his killer can be found.
Celedon's family was in Berkeley this week to confer with police on the case. Monday night they planted flowers near the spot on Adeline Street where he was gunned down the night of Sept. 12, 2010.
Celedon, also known as Fito, was attempting to protect his girlfriend, Amber Nelson, when he was shot while the couple was returning from a party.
The family hopes their visit will jog the memory of anyone who may have witnessed their son's death.
A reward for information in the case has been raised to $20,000 with the help of Chilean authorities.
Anyone with information is asked to call the police department's Investigations Division -- Homicide Detail at 510-981-5741 or the 24 hour non emergency number 510-981-5900. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can phone Bay Area Crimes Stoppers (BACS) at (800)-222-TIPS (8477). All calls are confidential.
