LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, GA (Times Free Press) -

Family members of a slain North Georgia 17-year-old have appealed to hundreds in the community to bring the case of the boy's killer before a grand jury.

In the weeks after Dalton McConathy died on Nov. 11, his mother, father and siblings have asked local residents to sign a petition directed at Lookout Mountain Judicial Circuit District Attorney Herbert "Buzz" Franklin. The petition asks Franklin to present the evidence of McConathy's death before a grand jury.

As of Tuesday night, the family had collected at least 797 signatures.

McConathy died after 69-year-old Fred Steven Youngblood shot him in the neck in Youngblood's backyard.
