Nishita's family says the video would help the family find closure and justice for Kevin.

"He was my everything," said Virginia Nishita, Kevin's wife. "We would watch a TV series and after awhile we would become the characters. He would call me, and he would call me the name from whatever series we were watching, just to make it fun. And we always had date night once a week."
