      Two years later, the fatal shooting of a prominent Flint civil-rights activist remains unsolved.

      C. Frederick Robinson, a lawyer, was killed at his home. A former client was caught with his car and credit card but hasn't been charged with his death. Renee "Lucky" Williams is in prison for manslaughter in a different case.

      Dr. Debra Robinson doesn't believe Williams killed her father. She says she doesn't want her father's death forgotten.

      Flint police say the case remains open but there's been no new information to release.

      Robinson played an important role in Flint outlawing housing discrimination in 1968. He helped change policy that allowed blacks to be buried at Flint Memorial Park cemetery. It's where he was buried at age 79.
