This time of year brings tears and memories to an Oklahoma City family following a loved one's death.
The woman was shot two years ago in southeast Oklahoma City, and police have not caught the killer.
Brea Robinson was only 24-years-old with a young child when she was shot. Robinson died three months later, turning the assault case into a murder investigation.
“I heard all these gunshots and they were really close,” said Lakeesha Robinson, victim’s mother.
The gunshots haunt Lakeesha Robinson. Her daughter and a man were shot while they were sitting in a car at the Redbud Landing Apartments. The gunman and another suspect have not been seen since that night.
Investigative leads ran cold.
“I just know someone knows something,” said Lakeesha Robinson. “I just pray to God that they please find it in their heart to come forward. I need closure.”
The 24-year-old victim survived for several months but complications from the gunshot wound took her life. The grieving mother has not been the same since that day.
“Why would somebody shooter her? You know, why?” said Lakeesha Robinson. “She didn’t have enemies like that. She didn’t have enemies period.”
Lakeesha Robinson has been raising her daughter's now 7-year-old son Breon, who is autistic, but knows she can never replace his mother.
"They had a very, very tight bond," said Lakeesha Robinson. "He was her whole world."
Lakeesha Robinson said she made a promise to her daughter while she was in the hospital fighting for her life. She promised to bring justice for her daughter's death.
“When she passed I had to let her know that I would not stop,” said Lakeesha Robinson. “And do whatever it takes, I mean whatever to find what happened to my baby.”
