Boyfriend of drive-by shooting victim speaks out

LAS VEGAS -- For the first time, one of the people closest to the innocent bystander killed in a drive-by shooting is speaking out.

This comes as Metro Police release a cell phone video of a man they believe could lead them to Cassandra Cassidy's killer.

Adam Loghides, the victim's boyfriend, says he has nothing to say to the person responsible for his girlfriend's death, but he does want people to know about the woman he planned to be with forever.

"We kissed each other goodbye and I said 'i love you,'" Loghides said.

Those were the last words he said to his girlfriend Cassandra.

"I'm really happy that she got to hear that one last time," he said.

Loghides says Cassandra Cassidy always checked in with him when she arrived at work for her overnight shift. However, on Friday, he didn't hear from her.

"That's the time when I should have gotten that text message but I got a call from her mother instead and it was the worst news imaginable."

Loghides says his girlfriend of two years was always helping others, even the last moments of her life.

"She was all about treating everyone, or really just caring for everybody before herself, she was very selfless."

Police say Cassidy was pulling into work at the Solutions Recovery rehab center near Charleston Boulevard and Lindell Road.when she was approached by two women asking for help. They needed to use her cell phone.

Moments later, Cassidy was shot dead in a drive-by shooting.

Investigators say she was not the intended target.

"I don't think any of us have fully grasped the situation being 100 percent real cause, you know, we all think she's just going to walk through the door still," Loghides said.

He is still unable to walk through the door of the home the young couple shared. Since the shooting, he's been staying with a friend.

"Last time I walked in there, it was just like she was there yesterday. All of her stuff was just laying about."

As Loghides comes to terms with his loss, he wants Cassidy to be remembered as kind and loving person.

"When someone like that is lost, it's a huge tragedy."

He started a Go Fund Me account to raised $500 to plant a tree in Cassidy's memory. More than $3,500 has already been donated to the account.
