SACRAMENTO, CA - A year after a Rosemont eighth grader was murdered and found dead in a park dugout, the community gathered to remember her in hopes that it might prompt someone to come forward with answers.
Candles burned in memory of 13-year-old Jessica Funk-Haslam and pink ribbons were adorned with zebra stripes to keep her spirit alive.
Detectives have interviewed hundreds of people, including students, and have checked 300 homes during their investigation to catch Funk-Haslam's killer.
Even a year later, detectives said they're still getting tips daily.
The FBI is also working on the case. Agents said Funk-Haslam's killer is most likely a male she may have known, not a stranger, and most likely between 13 and 25 years old.
Family friend Heather Duncan is hopeful for a break in the case.
"They're going to find somebody," Duncan said. "Someone is out there. Somebody knows something."
"I'm taking it one day at at time, still. But I have friends and family for support," Jessica's mother Tara Funk-Haslam said.
There's a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Jessica's killer.
