The family of a young pregnant woman is offering a $5,000 reward, in hopes it leads to the person who shot and killed her and her unborn child.

It was almost two weeks ago that Amber was found shot to death in her car near the corner of Sunnymeade Pl. and Plymouth Ln., just a couple of blocks down from where she lived with her father.

There are still marks along the curb, yard and fence where her car crashed and where a neighbor called 911 for help. But still no sign of her killer. The family is still too distraught to talk on camera, but did reach out in an email about the $5,000 reward.

Her father writes:

"We have offered this reward in hopes that the low life or low life's that did this to our daughter and her unborn son will be caught and convicted of this crime."

He goes on to write:

"She had her faults, but she had a big heart and tried to help anyone she thought needed help."

The Village Deputy Police Chief says even though their detectives have been working around the clock, they have still not arrested anyone for the double murder.

"I think there's a lot of people that we have to interview, there's a lot of avenues we have to look at," said Steve Jagosh, The Village Police Dept. Deputy Chief.

Police originally said two young black males were seen running from the scene late that night. And though police say Amber did have a friend in the car who witnessed what happened, she has not been able to identify the gunman.

"Somebody out there knows what happened in this case," said Jagosh. "And that's what we're hoping for -  that with this reward money, that whoever witnessed this or knows information for this comes forward. And hopefully this reward will help with that."

And the Stokke family may not be the only one's offering a reward in this case. The Village Crime Stoppers Department may also be putting up a reward, but that amount is yet to be determined.

If you have any information, that could help, please call The Village police department Crime Stoppers line at (405) 751-1234. You can remain anonymous, but again, you may be eligible for that $5,000 reward.
