SAVANNAH, GA -

A mother gunned down on her front porch as her young daughter slept inside.

It happened almost a year ago, and the person who shot her is still on the loose.

"Our job is to solve those homicides and murders," said Detective Bryony Harris of the Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department.

Savannah-Chatham Metro Detective bryony Harris has been trying to solve the murder of Amistica Grells since March of last year..

"It affects the families, it affects the community,' explains Harris. "Because you have a murderer out there, someone who just killed an innocent mother."

That mother, Amistica Grells, was shot and killed March 24, 2013 on the front porch of her West 41st street home as her five year old daughter slept inside.

"She also has a mother and father, family and loved ones that are wanting some closure on this," said the Detective.

That's why investigators are asking for your help, to help them.

"Anyone that has heard anything," said Harris. "The smallest information, we take it and follow up on any and all leads. So whether it may be a small, minute to somebody, it may be a major lead to investigators."

If you can help give investigators any information on this murder, call Crimestoppers right away at (912) 234-2020.  
Remember, your tip could catch a killer.

"We want to put this person behind bars as quickly as possible," said a defiant Detective Harris.

And police also want you to remember that any tip can be made anonymously, and if it leads to a criminal's capture, you could be eligible for a cash reward.
