“I just want the person or persons, whoever did it, to know how much they took from us. I get it, you were probably angry with her justice or whatever, she just didn’t deserve that,” Siske’s mother said.

Metro police told News 2 they are pursuing strong leads in Siske’s case. Her family has created a GoFundMe page to help with her funeral.
