Every year family members come together to meet at a memorial they built that sits just a few blocks from where the murder happened.  Evelyn Lockett says it’s her family’s way to try to cope with the brutal stabbing death of her sister.  

“And for the person who did this to Sandra, I forgive you,” Lockett said. “I forgive you from the bottom of my heart and God is a just God and He will take care of this matter.”

There is a $6,000 cash reward being offered for information on this cold case.
