Authorities say a $1,000 reward is being offered for information on the murder of a Hall County teenager.
Police say Hannah Truelove, 16, was found murdered near the Lake Lanier Club Apartments on August 24. She lived at the complex with her mother. Her body was discovered in a heavily wooded area behind the complex by a resident.
At a press conference Wednesday announcing the reward, Truelove's mother, Mona Harrison, talked about the impact of her daughter's murder on her family and friends.
"Every day, my memories of Hannah come flooding back. What I wouldn't give to have her here with me again," Harris said.
Investigators say are still looking for a late 1990s to early 2000s four-door passenger car that could be a Chevrolet or Dodge, light silver in color with front end damage. It may also have a door that is white or a lighter shade of silver. They say the car may have been in the area of the apartments on August 23, and police believe the people in the car may have information that will aid the investigation.
"Please help my family by coming forward with your information -- even if that information is about your son or daughter. Harris said.
Hannah's murder was one of three unsolved killings in Hall County last year. The leads have dried up since last summer, but they're hoping that will now change.
"We're very hopeful that – not just the reward money – but the personal appeal from the victim's family will spur someone who knows something. And we're certain that there is someone out there who knows about this crime," said Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks of the Hall County Sheriff's Office.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Hall County police at 770-503-3232, or the GBI tip line at 800-597-8477.
