GREENSBORO, N.C.-- New details have been released in the death of 18-year-old Dorien Jackson, whose body was found in a lake off Plainfield Road in Greensboro in March.

The medical examiner's report shows that Jackson was shot and killed by a single bullet to the back of the neck. Jackson disappeared from High Point back in January, but his body wasn't found until two months later in Lake Townsend.

Jackson's family now knows how Dorien was killed, but they want to know why.

"I got a feeling that somebody knows something," said Henry Jackson, Dorien's father.

Jackson believes his son may have known his killer.

"Why, if you were all that mad with each other? It takes a bigger man to walk away than to kill somebody, that's a human life and once you take it you can't retract it," Jackson said.

He is confident that he will soon find out who killed his son.

"I just hope it gets so heavy on his mind, when he goes to sleep he can't even sleep until he confesses. I just want to ask them person to person, look them in the face and the eyes and say why," Jackson asked.

The Greensboro Police Department is still actively investigating the case.

They are offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest.
