Carter with the urn containing the ashes of her daughter,
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - An emotional plea from a Louisville mother, hoping someone who has answers to the murder of her daughter will come forward.
"Why did you do this to my daughter," said Belinda Carter. "That's what I want to ask you is why did you do this to her?"
All along Carter has believed the death of the daughter, Dominique Carter Bryant, wasn't random. Dominique, 30, was shot multiple times early on February 9 at the Salisbury Apartments at 22nd and Magazine Streets in the Russell neighborhood after a night out with friends. Her 11 year old daughter was in the apartment with her father when it happened.
"I've got to concentrate on raising my granddaughter," said Carter. "She's still in denial a lot I think something she doesn't understand at 11 years old. Why is her mother gone? We've got to be strong for her."
Dominique's older brother, Jacques Boddy, is in the Air Force and was in Japan when he got the news. He immediately rushed to Louisville to be with his mother.
"I've been waiting for her to come through the door and what are we doing tonight, "said Jacques, "...and she's not coming."
Dominique's grandmother, Rosita Boddy, remembers her granddaughter as someone who was full of life.
"She was a lady," Rosita said, "she was a diva."
All Carter has now is an urn containing the ashes of her daughter.
"She will not leave me, she will be right beside me like she said," said Carter. "Whoever did it does not have a heart. You know what; they have to come to God. God will have the final say of this person."
LMPD said there no new leads in the case. If you have any information, call the anonymous crime tip line at 574-LMPD (5673).
Dominique would have celebrated her 31st birthday on March 7.
