An Elkhart home invasion two years ago claimed the life of 7-year-old Kristyana Jackson.
"It's a very sad day, two years ago was the day Kristyana died," said Kristyana's grandmother, Barbara Lamb. "There are terrible memories of this weekend."
Kristyana's parents came home to find three suspects who demanded they retrieve items from inside their home. Lamb says the suspects shot Kristyana's father three times. Then they shot Kristyana once in the head. Kristyana did not survive.
"She was such a wonderful little girl," said Lamb. "It's heart-wrenching."
After two years, the family is stuck waiting for answers.
"Every day you wake up and think, are these people going to be charged, are we going to find these people because it's torn up our family," said Lamb. "It's just not right for people to be able to get away with murder especially a 7-year-old little girl."
Kristyana's mother was unwilling to go on camera but said in a text message: "She was a beautiful soul!"
Lamb says Kristyana was known for her love of music and dance. To honor her, she and her husband wear necklaces with her face etched into them.
"We wanted to have something in remembrance," said Lamb. "When I go over to the house and baby-sit her baby brother, he'll look at it and say, 'Sissy,' and give it a kiss."
Lamb says anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at (574) 235-9115. There is a $6,000 reward for anyone who gives information that leads to an arrest.
"It's just an empty feeling," said Lamb. "Part of your heart is gone."
