GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. As they wait for information, friends of Randy and his family have shown an outpouring of support on social media writing about how much he'll be missed.
After weeks of grieving some are finally ready to talk.
"I thought he was the best guy I've ever known he was my best friend for many years," Jason Baca.
Jason Baca met Randy Cook when he was 11 years old. He still remembers the last conversation they had talking over the phone on New Year's Eve. When he heard Randy died just hours later, he was devastated.
Baca, like many of Cook's friends, wants to know what's going on with the investigation into his death. Mesa County Sheriff's Office officials say no arrests have been made in the case, but little else.
The limited information is hard for Cook's loved ones, but they are hoping the investigation will clear up some questions about what happened on New Year's.
Jessica Morris has also been friends with Cook for years. She said he was a loving, caring man who was helpful to her and others in the community.
"Whenever you needed anything you could call him and he would move mountains to show up and help you with anything," Morris.
Cook's loved ones are trying to keep his spirit alive by holding a candle light vigil on January 21st between 5:30 and 7:00 PM at the old Mesa County Courthouse.
