The murder of Zachary Corbut -- Mother asks for public's help

Posted: Updated:

Billboards and signs propped up all across Tucson show the face of Zachary Corbut. Accompanying the display – a reward for $20,000 and the question, “Who killed me?”

It’s been almost two years since Zach Corbut was killed in a home invasion near Craycroft and Grant.

He was just 20-years-old and a former UA and Pima Community College student.

Corbut’s family hasn’t given up on finding those responsible for his murder.

"Our family has just changed forever. It will never be the same,” Ann Corbut, Zach’s mother said.

Zach loved extreme sports, such as skydiving. He also had a knack for playing the guitar.

What really stands out to Ann was Zach’s vibrant and fun personality.

"He had a real keen sense of humor and liked to play jokes and he had you know a great laugh,” Corbut said.

The incident occurred on October 13, 2015. Multiple people entered a midtown residence. Zach and his roommates lived there.

The Tucson Police Department discovered Corbut had been shot and killed.

According to TPD officials, the home invasion was a result of Zach’s involvement with using illegal drugs.

But nonetheless, he was a victim of a violent crime.

"You don't commit murder and get away with it. I think people know something and I want them to say something,” Ann said.

Corbut’s family continues to work with TPD and local non-profit, Homicide Survivors, Inc., to spread awareness, posting flyers, including billboards and displays .

"The part that says ‘Who killed me?’ is extremely important because it really brings it close to home. It means Zach was a person. He wasn't just a statistic and he was someone's son. He was someone's brother,” said Becky Porter, victim advocate with Homicide Survivors, Inc.

It’s all about securing justice for Zachary Corbut.

"Nothing’s going to bring Zach back but it's fair to their family to at least know who killed their son,” Porter said.

Ann said she’ll never give up on her son.

"He deserves justice in this. It won't really make the pain go away but I so want somebody accountable for what they did.”

Ann set up a Facebook page dedicated to her son. Click here: https://www.facebook.com/who.killed.zach.corbut/
