A $5,000 cash reward is being offered for any information that will lead to the arrest of the person who killed 20 year-old Candace DeMoss last Sunday in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Candace DeMoss was discovered lying on a patch of grass outside a home after police responded to reports of a shooting in the early hours of Sunday.
Her death is being investigated as a homicide by Cincinnati Police after her body was found at 3.48am.
Family and friends struggled to contain their grief as they attended a makeshift memorial and left flowers and balloons at the spot where she died.
Miss DeMoss’s mother Coleen Mayne said: ‘To be murdered like this and dead and left in the street, it’s just unbelievable to me. ‘There had to be an eyewitness to the shooting. Please, please come out and tell.’
Her family has admitted the young woman had a problem with substance abuse and her children are in the custody of another family member.
However they added that she had turned her life around, graduated from high school and was hoping to attend college.
A local limousine company, where Candace’s cousin works, is offering the cash reward, up to $5,000.
Police have yet to release further details about the shooting which took place on the north side of the city.
