It's been a long time since 19-year-old Brandon Crain died, but his family hasn't forgotten him or the major search when he was gone.
"I just became a little beggar, begging for help to get people out to search their lands, their barns, the river, anywhere," said Crain's sister, Vanessa Moldon.
"Me as a mother and knowing my child, I knew once I found out he was gone that something was badly wrong to not return," said Crain's mother, Reba Dile.
Crain went missing in January of last year.
His body was found in April of 2012 in the Green River in Butler County.
For a long time police said no foul play was expected, then in April of this year about a year later, police arrested Daniel Hostetler of Metcalfe County in connection with Crain's death.
On Tuesday, Hostetler pleaded guilty to multiple charges but Crain's family says it still doesn't all make sense.
"I have never heard of Daniel, didn't know Daniel, still don't know Daniel. I don't even know if Brandon knew Daniel, but I know that Brandon knew somebody with Daniel that night because Brandon would not have gotten in the car," said Moldon.
"It may have been an accident. It may have been malicious, I don't know, but there are other people out there that I truly believe took Brandon's life," said Moldon.
For Crain's mother, she now can rest a little easier.
"I have closure and peace that I know Brandon is in heaven and they'll never be able to hurt him again," said Dile.
Hostetler's pleaded guilty to manslaughter and tampering with physical evidence for which he's suggested to serve a 13 year sentence.
