Sunday marks 2 years since Louisville mother was shot and killed

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)---"I can't even hardly talk about her. It just breaks my heart," says Susan Powers, the sister of Charlotte Clark.

Almost two years later and the family of 21-year-old Charlotte Clark are still hoping for answers in this unsolved case. 

"She just had so much to live for," says Susan Powers.

Late in the evening on July 14th, 2011, Clark was dropped off near Del Park Terrace and 44th Street at the Hutchinson Square Apartments, where she lived.

"Walked across the street to talk to her friends and somebody, we don't know if it was a man or woman, drove by in a car and shot 8 times. A bullet hit a man beside Charlotte in the arm, and one hit her in the upper torso," says Susan Powers.

Susan Powers says there isn't a day that goes by that they don't think about what happened.

"I just want them to find who did this to her so that we can have some peace. We don't have any peace, every day, wondering what happened to her," says Susan Powers.

To this day, the family believes Clark was caught in the crossfire that evening, and that the bullets were meant for someone else.

"She just didn't deserve this. She was 21. She had a full life and she deserved to live that, and to raise her babies," says Susan Powers.

They continue to hold out hope that someone will come forward with information.

It's been two years of waiting, but that information could give this family the closure they need to move on.

"It might be something small, but it could be the thing that breaks the case open. Just call," says Susan Powers.

Family members of Charlotte Clark plan to hold a vigil for her next weekend at Green Meadows Cemetery.

A fund is also set up in her name at PNC bank locations to help pay for her headstone, and to start a reward fund.

If you have information in this case, call the police tipline at 574-LMPD.
