NEW MARKET (WATE) - The family of a Jefferson County man killed in an FBI raid is asking for answers.

Nearly four months after the shooting, they say no one has told them why this happened.

In March, FBI agents came to 41-year-old Scott Edward Evans' New Market home on Stapleton Road to serve a search warrant.

Federal prosecutors claimed Evans sent and received emails containing child porn as part of an international child porn ring.

The bureau said when agents tried to arrest him he was shot and killed.

Gary Grizzle, Evans' father-in-law, lived next to Evans for more than twenty years and wants to know why an FBI agent killed him.

"We just want to hear something back about it," said Grizzle. "What's going on and what brought all this on?"

Grizzle said since the day of the shooting, no one from the FBI has been back to the house. He said they did not clean up the scene and left his daughter's home a wreck.

He says the child porn accusations against their son-in-law are shocking and he has doubts if they are even true.

Grizzle says the family only had one old computer and said his son-in-law did not even know how to set up an email account.

He says the only photos Evans had on his cell phone were of his three daughters.
     
"We would like to know why?" said Grizzle. "What proof they had and what caused all this."

Grizzle says Evans' death has been hard for his daughter and the couple's three daughters, ages 8, 15, and 21.

The two younger children were at home the morning their father was shot and heard the gun fire.

"It's a lot of aggravation just on the kids," said Grizzle, "Really on us too, because we would like to know, living here so close, we would like to have some sort of closure. So far nothing."

FBI officials told us Tuesday that they are waiting for the case to go before a review board.

After that is when more details about the shooting should be released.

Evans had worked as a truck driver, and had been married to his wife for more than twenty years.
