EAST ST. LOUIS, IL (KTVI) – The family of Michael Brown issued a renewed call Sunday for the arrest of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

"It's our position legally that you have enough witnesses out there that described an event that is criminal in nature," said Brown family attorney Anthony Gray.

Gray attended the East St. Louis Peace Fest.  The event brought hundreds to the East St. Louis riverfront to call for peace and unity.

Gray said the family is frustrated that the investigation will soon stretch beyond two months.

"They just don't get the whole reason why it's taking so long, "said Gray.   "They wish that justice would be just a little bit faster."

Gray says the family is also frustrated over what they feel is a lack of transparency in both the state and federal investigations.

"We don't have any information on what was promised to be a transparent open and fair process," said Gray.

The St. Louis County Prosecutor's Office has said it will not discuss any evidence until the grand jury process runs its course.  Prosecutor Bob McCulloch has said the case could wrap up by the end of October or at the latest early November.​
