Edith Roberson, reached out to CBS 42 with the following statement about her daughter, 23-year-old Heather Suzan Roberson.

At this time we as a family are still trying to come to grips with the loss of Heather. We do not wish to speak on camera yet. We have so many unanswered questions, thoughts and concerns. Heather was always smiling and made a lasting impression on everyone she met.

She was dealing with some of the issues that face many of our young people today. We were trying to help her though those issues. The loss of a daughter, mother, sister, niece and friend deeply saddens every member of our family. We would like to thank everyone for the thoughts and prayers. Our faith in God will bring us through this.
