The mother of a murdered teen boy in Washington has gone public with pleas to aid her in getting police to charge her son’s murderers with hate crimes. She’s even called on celebrities Lady Gaga and Ellen DeGeneres for help.

The newspaper Inlander reports Jason Fox was murdered in Newport, Washington last September. Investigators discovered his body in a shallow grave on a nearby ranch about a month later. Four men–Riley Hillestad, Claude Merritt, Matthew Raddatz-Freeman and Kevin Belding–now face charges in connection with the murder, though police have resisted labeling the killing a hate crime.

Now Jason’s mother, Pepper Fox, has taken to TikTok to enlist public and celebrity help.
