AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - The parents of an Americus toddler who was murdered nearly nine months ago are begging for new information to help catch her killer.
Whoever killed Assata Snipes remains free, and her parents are very emotional still. They think about their daughter and her brutal death daily. They hope this new push turns up positive results.
"Somebody knows something," said her mother Sabrina Milledge. The four-year old was killed on December 30th when someone fired shots into the family's apartment on Georgia Avenue.
It's a night her parents remember all too well. "All of us are sitting in the living room together. She's brushing my hair and I get up and then five shots come in," said Milledge.
"Me picking my baby off that floor, that really did something to me. Knowing my baby had been shot for no reason," said her father Antonio Snipes.
Days, weeks, and months have gone by without any substantial information leading to her killer. "We need somebody, if they know anything to come out and say something. That's basically all we need," said Milledge.
But this request is more than just a plea for justice. "It's an outcry. It's an outcry for justice. How can a four-year old girl be murdered in a city so small and people won't speak up and say nothing? Like ain't nothing happened," said Snipes.
Agents have been following leads the entire time and insist this case has not gone cold. Now, they're asking for your help. "Each lead that comes in, we'll follow up on that lead," said Assistant Special Agent in Charge Terry Howard.
It's help these parents are begging for as they try to figure out who murdered their little girl. "It'd mean a whole lot. It'd mean the world to me," said Snipes.
Agents have not said how close they may be to an arrest but say this case is a high priority for them. Both parents are adamant that there are people who have information that could bring their daughter's killer to justice.
