Daughter wants mom's killer caught

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  An Albany woman plans to hand out flyers around the city this week hoping to find her mother's killer. Yolanda Roundtree was murdered in her East Albany home on Sands Drive November 6th. Three months later, no one has been arrested, so her daughter is leading an effort to find the killer.

"I have no answers. Can't sleep. Can't eat. I just need some closure. Me and my family,"  Freeman said.

45-year-old Yolanda Roundtree was found stabbed to death in the closet of her apartment.  Her body was covered with a blanket, her house ransacked, but only her car was missing. It was found the next day on Martin Luther King Drive.

Her daughter says she has no clue who killed Roundtree, except she believes it was somebody who knew her mother.

"She was well known and loved very much by everyone," Freeman said.

So why would anybody want to hurt her? "That's the question I want to know. Why? Why did they take her life like that? Why?"

Katie hopes flyers with her Mother's picture will lead to some helpful information. "I know someone knows something, and I wish they would come forward."

Freeman watches a DVD with her Mother's favorite music and pictures, and vows that she will not stop looking for her killer until she has the answers she needs.

Albany Police say they continue to work on leads in the Roundtree murder. One man was picked up as a person of interest in the case and questioned, but then released.

 If you have any information, call Albany Police at 229-431-2100. or CRIMESTOPPERS at 229-436-TIPS.
