WAUWATOSA -- Jay Anderson's family continues to wait for answers after he was shot and killed by a Wauwatosa police officer this past summer.

But, they now have the car he was sitting in when he was killed. Two weeks ago the vehicle was returned to the family while they await the Milwaukee County District Attorney's decision on charges.

"His blood all over the front seat," described Anderson's fiancee, Star Delarosa. "Glass everywhere."

They're the sights the family knew might be in the car from June 23, 2016. Police said an officer responded to a suspicious car parked in a Wauwatosa park at 3 a.m. They said the officer found Anderson with a handgun.

"Seeing that that's where he was sitting at, to see the bullet holes through the headrest, it just made me sad. It was just unbelievable," Delarosa said.

The family's attorney, John Safran, said the car has gone through additional forensic testing. 

"It at least allowed us to gather a little more evidence and information," he said.

The family said they still haven't seen a photo of the gun Police report Anderson had. They're waiting for a decision from the Milwaukee County DA to see the full report. When asked for comment, the DA's office replied, "Our office has no update in the Jay Anderson case."
