It's been nearly a year since Roberto "Bobby" Ruiz Jr. and Adam Rodriguez were shot and killed while at a backyard birthday party in West Covina.

The Nov. 20 shooting remains unsolved. But their families and a nonprofit group hope a billboard will lead to new information.

Ruiz will be among four slaying victims featured on a billboard to be unveiled Oct. 30 at Arrow Highway and Barranca Avenue in Covina. The billboard will include a tip line to call and the words "Stop the Killing."

The billboard is part of a campaign launched in May by Justice for Murdered Children, a nonprofit group founded by parents of homicide victims.

"Our whole objective is to let people know that anyone can be a victim of a homicide and to bring awareness to the unsolved homicide," said LaWanda Hawkins, one of the group's founders.

She said their wish is to put up at least one billboard every month. They were fortunate to get three billboards this month, Hawkins said. They unveiled the billboard in Los Angeles on Thursday and the one in Inglewood has an Oct. 26 unveiling.

The billboards will be up for a month. Justice for Murdered Children have put up six billboards featuring 24 victims.

Ruiz's mother, Luz, belongs to the group. "I would like to create awareness with the public what is going on the streets and that our kids are getting murdered," Luz Ruiz said. "I would like to ask our community - West Covina and other cities - to join us in the fight to end the senseless killing of our kids." She also hopes that anyone who heard or saw anything about her son's case will come forward after seeing the billboard and call police.

Candlelight vigils for Ruiz and Rodriguez are held every 20th of the month at the West Covina Civic Center. Ruiz's sister, Claudia, said they planned on holding the vigil 8 p.m., Friday by the new billboard.

"I would like to invite everybody to join us in a prayer, to pray for our kids because I don't wish another family to go through what we're going through," said Luz Ruiz, who is raising Roberto's 3-year-old son.
