LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Family members of a woman found dead in a west Louisville neighborhood pleaded for answers Sunday.

Andrie Arnold, 26, died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds. Arnold died around 8:20 a.m. Saturday, the coroner's office said.

Metro Police are investigating but haven't made any arrests in the case as of early Sunday, leading Arnold's family members to ask for help.

"This is the first life and death situation we've had in our family," cousin Ieisha Tyson said. "Please, if anybody knows any information, if you could please come forward."

City sanitation workers found Arnold's body in an alley in the 2300 block of West Gaulbert Avenue on Saturday morning.

Relatives said Arnold didn't live on that street and believed the person responsible for killing her had dumped her body in the alley.

Arnold's three children -- an 8-year-old daughter, a 7-year-old son and a 10-month-old son -- are safe, family members said.

"I just want to know why," Tyson said. "I don't understand. She wasn't mixed up in the wrong crowd or nothing like that."

Relatives said Arnold was outgoing and was often seen smiling.

"Everybody loved her," aunt Gena Arnold said. "I just want to know why they killed my niece."

Metro Police said anyone with information in the case should call their tip line, 574-LMPD.
