An emotional plea from the family of a Lethbridge senior, killed in her home earlier this year.
Flanked by her husband Dean, Lisa Freihaut broke down in tears talking about her mother.
Irene Carter’s body was found in her southside Lethbridge home on January 17th.
And while police have gathered plenty of evidence and heard numerous tips, no arrests have been made.
In a prepared statement, Freihaut says the family has been dealing with “sadness, disbelief, frustration and anger”, adding Carter loved her family, especially her grandchildren, calling them her “pride and joy.”
“Mom, we love you and we miss you,” Freihaut said at Calgary Police headquarters on Thursday. “We think of you every day.”
Sergeant Ryan Stef says they held the news conference in Calgary for the family, but also because they have essentially exhausted their efforts to find witnesses in Lethbridge and are hoping to go bigger.
He says they are looking to speak with anyone who might know door-to-door salespeople who might have been in that neighbourhood back in January, as they may have some information that can help the investigation move forward.
“At this point, we have not ruled out anything motive-wise,” Stef told reporters. “Could it have been a robbery, could it have been a theft of some sort, that’s a possibility.”
Freihaut is hoping someone comes forward, so that the family can “finally start to heal.”
