KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A mother is still looking for closure a year after her daughter and granddaughter were murdered. Police are still looking for their killer.

The Kansas City, Mo. Police Department and Mayor Sly James painted the pavilion at Blue Hills Park in honor of Damiah White. It will stay pink until the murderer is caught.

It's a struggle every day to keep memories alive, memories of Cheryl Turner's daughter Myeisha Turner and her granddaughter Damiah.

That's why Turner held a vigil, knocked on doors and passed out fliers. They're attempts to remind the public of the tragic deaths that happened August 28th, 2013.

"I don't have any answers, but they matter and we need closure," she said.

A family member found Myeisha and her three-year-old daughter dead inside her apartment. The killer has not been caught. To this day, Turner is still looking for justice and says she's always reminded of their death.

"The holidays, it's just not the same. There's just a void," said Turner.

The community has supported her fight, adopting a street in honor of the two lives. Out reach groups and even the mayor has made a plea.

Turner hopes that someone will break their silence and come forward about the homicides.

"This is very painful. It's unthinkable. It's very hard to process and accept, even still now," she said.

There will be another vigil Saturday at 5 p.m. at Blue Hills Park.
