JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- On a humid, July morning, the life of 22-year-old Amber Bass was cut short.

Her sister Robin Lezcano found Amber's lifeless body in the driveway.

"My sister wasn't part of the crime scene, she wasn't part of the drug scene, she was just coming home from a night out with friends," Lezcano said.

Amber had dreams of being a party planner and spent much of her time working at a local restaurant.

"You could have the worst day and she would just come up with these goofy things. She was also very devoted to her family and very caring," Lezcano said.

Ever since Amber was shot and killed, her family has spent the last month pleading for someone to come forward with information. No arrests have been made.

"This person is still out there and they could do it again, like robin said it could be your daughter, your niece, this person apparently is desperate," says family friend Susan Singer.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office did release a surveillance photo of a car captured by a neighbor's surveillance camera that was following Amber's car closely. Then it was seen leaving several minutes later.

JSO also released a sketch of Amber's purse which is gray with silver sequins and was missing after the shooting.

"Those quiet moments are the hardest, it just reminds me of how much I miss her," Lezcano said.

She is asking the public to break the silence and come forward because she says her family needs to know who took her younger sister's life and why?

"It drives us crazy to not know, so we definitely need closure, any kind of closure," Lezcano said.
