Son of murder victim found in garbage can: 'It’s not gonna be no cold case'
Family and friends gathered over the weekend to remember a woman murdered and dumped in a garbage one year ago in the Chickasaw neighborhood.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Family and friends gathered over the weekend to remember a woman murdered and dumped in a garbage can one year ago in the Chickasaw neighborhood.
The body of Monica White, 50, was found on Sept. 4, 2015 in an alley near 41st and Doerhoffer Avenue.
With no arrests in the case, loved ones came together in that same alley on Sunday afternoon to set up a makeshift memorial of teddy bears surrounded by magnets for the woman they describe as having a “magnetic personality."
"She was somebody that you could count on,” said White’s son, Anthony White. “She deserves a big billboard on the side of one of them buildings that says Monica's Louisville.”
Sunday’s service concluded with the release of balloons in White’s memory.
“We don’t want this to happen to no one else’s family. We don’t want anybody else to have to go through what we go through. We just want justice,” said White’s friend, Nana Mack.
“It’s not gonna be no cold case. We’ve gotta get some answers here,” said Anthony White.
White’s family asks that anyone with information on the case call the Louisville Metro Police tipline at (502) 574-LMPD.
