‘Just Say Something': Reward in Woman's Shooting Death Doubles After 2 Years

Ramona Shelton's family has spent the past two years looking for answers, but so far, they've found none. And now-- they are making a renewed plea for help.

"If you do know something, just say something," Jenette Taylor, Ramona's mother, said.

A plea--from a grieving mother. Still looking for closure nearly two years after her daughter's murder.

"Every day is a miracle, to just get through it," Taylor said.

Ramona Shelton was killed in April 2017 in the driveway of her Thornton Township home. The mother of six was leaving to get food for contractors who were working at her house when someone shot her multiple times.

"(I'm) devastated that could happen to my sister," Jessica Anderson said.

Anderson is Ramona Taylor's younger sister.

"Ramona was a loving mother, sister, woman," she said. "(The) cornerstone of our family."

Ramona's family says they have forgiven her killer--but they still want justice.

"I have to forgive," Jenette said. "I have to. That's who we are. That's who Ramona was."

That's why they have doubled the reward in the case to $20,000 dollars and started a GoFundMe page.

"I think someone knows something," Jessica Anderson said. "Just a matter of when (they ) come forward and say something."

An investigation was ongoing as of Monday night.
