Home videos show Colton Turner spending time with parents

 Home movies, released to FOX 7 by Colton Turner's family members, show the 2-year-old spending time with his parents.

Family members said Colton was a sweet, happy little boy who was loved by his dad.

On May 31, 2014, Colton, his mother Meagan Work and his father Brandon Pelfrey spent the day driving through the mud in Pelfrey's back yard. Pelfrey's family didn't know it at the time, but that would be one of the last times they would ever see the little boy alive again and they said its how they will always remember him.

Colton was just two years old when police found what they believe to be his remains in a wooded area in south east Austin.

"We are going to work diligently to bring justice to a little boy who should have been enjoying the summer  instead of ending up in a shallow grave," said Austin Police Chief Art Acevado.

Colton's father's family says Pelfrey had tried to get his son back in the past, but Work wouldn't let him near the child.

Now pictures and videos are all Colton's family have left to remember him by.

Colton's grandmother on his father's side said they are meeting with a funeral home Saturday to make arrangements for Colton.
