The search for Ketie Jones' killer continues two years after her death

- Monday marks a somber day in the Plaza-Midwood neighborhood. It was two years ago today the body of Ketie Jones was found. 

What happened to Ketie Jones on October 15, 2016 remains a mystery two years later. 

According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police, Jones was shot and killed early that October morning after heading home from a night out with friends around 3 a.m. 

Jones' body was found in the parking lot of a business on the corner of The Plaza and Hamorton Place. Jone's mother spoke with FOX 46 Charlotte just one month after her daughter passed away. 

"It's still kind of a nightmare. I mean, I still kind of think sometimes that she's just away and when it hits home, it's almost too painful to bare," Jevona Livingston said. 

A few months later, her mother's emotions were on display again through an interview with CMPD.

"There's nothing that's going to bring Ketie back to me. There's nothing anybody is going to be able to say or do that's going to bring her back to me. But I'm going to go crazy if I have to keep going over scenarios in my head that don't make sense or that I don't have answers to," Livingston said. 

The latest development came at the beginning of 2018 when police released new surveillance video showing Jones walking along the Plaza minutes before someone shot and killed her.

Police said the same video shows a vehicle back on Hamorton around the time detectives believes Jones was shot. Even with this latest clue in Jone's death, her murder remains unsolved. 

"The same difficulty in this case is the same difficulty that we have in every unsolved case, is that someone who knows something hasn't come forward. Most of our cases are solved by people who give information to us, " a detective with CMPD said. 

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (704) 334-1600. You can remain anonymous.
