PHOENIX -

Exactly one year after this mother of 8 was found murdered at 29th Ave and Washington, Joann Lopez's family was back out at that same spot -- posting signs offering a reward and asking for help in finding her killer.

"I'm sure there are people that know something.. that know around the time when it happened and if they come forward and give police something.. lead.. to resolve this," said Lisa Cadena.

The family is hoping this memorial will trigger someone's memory and encourages them to come forward with information.

"She was a loving mom, sister, aunt and I don't think anyone deserves what happened.  We want it resolved.. answers," said Lopez's cousin, Lisa Cadena.

"I miss her but the reason we are here today is for closure for my sister. If anyone knows anything whatever can come forward to Silent Witness," says Nancy Canez.

"We want answers to put ourselves at ease and put her to rest and give her some kind of comfort and they have to pay for what they did," said Cadena.

Lopez was found dead in her pickup truck. She had been shot.

Police have very few clues in the case.  If you have any information, call Silent Witness.  You can remain anonymous and receive a cash award of $1,000 for tips leading to an arrest or indictment.

(480) WITNESS
