    Kate Seidel is hoping police can find her husband's killer and asks for the public's help in finding whoever is responsible for his death.

    On December 21, 2012 Kyle Seidel went to pick up Chinese food and never came home. Later that night Waterford police found him shot to death

    Kate Seidel says Waterford Police have been working non-stop on Kyle's case. They've come to her home every other week to give her updates.

    "Someone has to know something," said Seidel, a woman who lost her devoted husband and father of their three kids.

    Friday would have been Kyle and Kate's 10th wedding anniversary. "He was the type of guy who would help you if you had a flat tire or if your boat died in the middle of the river he'd tow you in," she said.

    Yet someone had it in for this all American guy Kate described. This past December police said he left their home to pick up food from the Lucky Inn Chinese Restaurant on Boston Post Road. Just a short time later he was found dead in the Family Bowl parking lot.

    "We'll get answers I'm sure we will so that's what we keep going for. I want to know," said Kate.

    She's trying to get those answers from her community. She has started a website and raised more than $1700 so they can pass out fliers telling her Waterford neighbors about the case.

    "We're not going to leave any stone uncovered," said Kate. She insists keeping her three children distracted and the mood upbeat is important.

    "Jessie my son doesn't understand…daddy heaven? He wants him to come home."

    Kate now has a reminder of Kyle around her neck. It's a fingerprint of him that a friend gave her. She has it so she'll always remember the hardworking man, the man who loved everything about the water and a man whose name she won't let go without justice

    "I think anyone would if someone they loved was killed, murdered," Kate said.

    She says that as far as she knows her husband didn't have any enemies.

    If anyone has information, you are urged to contact Waterford Police at 860-945-5200.
