Help, please.  

Those are the words of a family begging for information into the death of their daughter.

21-year old Rebecca Foley was shot and killed back on January 21 in Savannah.  

It's the last unsolved murder case in the city in 2013.

Driving into her apartment parking lot, messaging about what to cook for dinner.

That was the last thing Rebecca Foley's mother heard from her daughter.

Foley was shot and killed while inside her car at Colonial Village at Marsh Grove, her body found by her boyfriend who was just moments behind her in his car.

Almost two months have passed with no answers.

Investigators have gone door to door asking neighbors, friends, with no luck.

Foley's father Eddie and mother Jennifer came together today to plead for someone to come forward, to get some kind of an answer to the question, why?

"This is somebody's sister. This is somebody's daughter," said an emotional Jennifer Foley. "This is somebody's girlfriend. This is somebody who is loved, who's loved deeply. And whatever they have they need to share. They could be next."

"We are doing everything we can to find out who did this," said Savannah-Chatham Police Detective James Little. "This is one of those cases we're going to need help from the community."

Jennifer Foley said her daughter was on her way back from the nail salon when she was shot, talking about cooking pork loin, asking for recipes.

Her parents said she wasn't involved in criminal activity, the police added the shooting wasn't gang related. So an angry Jennifer Foley had a question for police who offered in her words "no new leads".

"What does it indicate when a 21 year old innocent girl is walked to up her car and shot in her back and murdered," asked Jennifer Foley. "What does that indicate?"

"A horrific, terrible, terrible crime," said Major Larry Branson.

"Yeah," responded Foley.

While emotions are still high in this case, details are very few.

So that's the reason behind this plea.

If you can help investigators in any way, please call Savannah-Chatham Police or Crimestoppers right away at (912)234-2020.
