God has been our peace, comfort, and strength during the last year and a half and will continue to carry us through.  This has been tragedy for both families.  We have been and will continue to pray for her and her family as they continue to get justice for her with the other men.  As a parent of a victim you want complete justice.  So I pray that Cherokee County continues to pursue all the other men so that justice is done and her family can move on as well."
