ALBANY, GA - (WALB) -

The family of an East Albany woman, murdered six years ago, is still looking for justice.

They're offering a reward they hope will help catch whoever killed Susie Hollingsworth.

Susie Hollingsworth was found dead inside her Mock Road home six years ago today, and her family says her unsolved murder still constantly haunts them.

Clarence and Otis Senn say they cherish the memory of their sister Susie Senn Hollingsworth. And every holiday her absence brings sadness.

 Clarence Senn said "Every Christmas. See our family was big, and we always met and had lunches on Christmas, Thanksgiving, and birthdays. But it's been just broke up since this happened."

Hollingsworth was found dead in her Mock Road home about 9PM April 29th, 2008. Family members say she was stabbed and her throat cut. Police say her body was found on the living room floor, covered from head to toe by a blanket. The doors were locked, the home in disarray, but no signs of a struggle. Her family says not knowing who murdered her still haunts them.

Otis Senn said "Yes, it would give some closure I'm sure to the family, and this, that and the other. Sure it would help."

Hollingsworth's Mock Road home was in an area at the time frequented by gangs, drug dealers, and prostitutes.

 Otis Senn said "I know somebody knows something. I'm sure they do."

Only four of the 8 Senn brothers and sisters are still alive, and they worry time could be running out, to bring justice for Susie.

 Clarence Senn said "There will be a reward in this case to anyone leading to an arrest and conviction of anyone that might have done this crime."

The brothers are pleading for help finding the killer. They say they will not forget their sister and will continue working to bring her killer to justice.
