Our family still grieves over the loss of Christy and knowing her killer may never be brought to justice after so many years. It does not mean we have stopped looking for the killer or caring. We loved you Christie

Her father went to his grave seeking justice for his beloved daughter and never found it.

In 5 days Christy Lynn would have been 15.
