Tara Moullet said her older brother Richard Anderson lived in Springfield his whole life. Moullet was one of four siblings with Anderson being the second oldest. 

Moullet told KEZI 9 News that Anderson had three boys. Although he has been in Portland for the past few months Moullet said he always made it a priority to come back home and see his kids. 

"Like a day or two ago he came to visit his son in Springfield," Moullet said. 

However, on Saturday, Moullet got the worst phone call of her life. She said her mom called her late at night telling her the police reached out informing her that her son's body was found on a property on Densmore Road. 

Moullet told KEZI 9 News that she has never heard of that place before and that it seems completely random. 

"I have no idea how he got there or why," Moullet said. 

All she knows is that a piece of her is gone and will never be replaced. 

"You're taking a part of not just me, but your taking my siblings, my aunts, my uncles, my grandma, my mother, you're taking a piece that we will never ever get back," Moullet said. 

Moullet told KEZI 9 News that she does not know who shot and killed her brother or why. 

"The only thing that came to mind was that this was personal and that this person was very angry," Moullet said. 

Moullet, the youngest of four, said she demands justice for her older brothers' death. 

"I definitely want answers. We want to know why. I want to know what was going on like why would you do this?"

However, until that happens she just wants people to know who Richard is. 

"He liked cars, a good hustle, he liked to play games, he would always visit his sons and be with his sons. He was very relaxed, very social, liked tattoos. I mean we all loved him."

It's safe to say Richard was loved by his family and will be greatly missed.
