Now 42, Smith is out on parole, believed to be living in Queens. Dale and Doreen Robie, Derrick's parents, are speaking with 48 Hours, to honor the memory of their son after fighting for years to keep his killer behind bars.
“We never forget our boy … because he was, you know, a wonderful child,” Doreen Robie told "48 Hours." “And we miss him terribly. … I wouldn’t wish this on anyone.”
