For the first time since the body found in a creek in Grayson County has been identified, we're now hearing from those asking for justice.

GRAYSON CO., Ky. (WHAS11) -- For the first time since the body found in a creek in Grayson County has been identified, we're now hearing from those who are asking for justice.

New details are coming out in the murder of Tromain Mackall, the Maryland Man who had lived in Western Kentucky.

His body was found in floating in a toolbox back on August 2. It’s a murder mystery that's crossing state lines.

The Grayson County Coroner said through dental records, he has confirmed that Tromain Mackall, a 29-year-old father and Navy Veteran was strangled, bound and placed into a toolbox, similar to one you’d see on the back of a pickup truck that was found floating in the Spring Fork Creek, he was reported missing on July 24.

Simone DeWitt, Mackall’s girlfriend, “He was my soulmate, he was the love of my life, we were going to get married this month.”

WHAS11 has learned from KSP detectives that Dewitt was one of the last people to see Mackall alive.

Ashley Howell, Mackall’s Cousin is skeptical as she states, “I do believe she has something to do with it or know more than what she has.”

Mackall moved to Owensboro in February we're told to be with his girlfriend.

Kentucky State Police said they are confident the murder happened in Daviess County.

Medical officials said something likely was placed over his mouth and neck at the same time.

Howell said confidently, “Right now, I actually believe that we are going to have justice soon, they are going to find Tromain's killer. I really do believe that.”

Now a father and multiple communities both in Kentuckiana and Maryland are demanding for someone to be held responsible.

Our sister station in Washington D.C., WUSA the family has concerns with Mackall's girlfriend not being completely honest regarding his last moments alive.
