Family hopes opening cold case murder will bring justice
ROBERT - Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff deputies recently reopened a murder investigation previously listed as cold.
"He said he's hoping to have some good news in a couple of days and that's all he said," Flo Foy said a detective told her this week.
Her daughter, Debbie Lindsey, was found stabbed to death near Amite in 2003.
Deputies opened the case after they say new information gives them a person of interest. But investigators are still asking for the public's assistance with any additional information.
"It's always on my mind. You don't ever forget it," she said. "They couldn't even open the coffin. So I just told them to bring it to the funeral home and bring it straight to the grave because they couldn't open it anyway. That's how bad she was."
"For my mama's sake and our sake, please tell us. Please help us get closure to this," Debbie's sister Gayle Baiamonte said. "How could anybody do that to a person. They had to be sick."
The family wants their hurt and tears lost over the years not to be in vain and justify reliving the painful memories that still haunt them.
"I just hope they can find whoever done it," Foy said.
"Find the person who did this and put them to justice and get this over with and if they can't just let it go because we can't go through this no more," Baiamonte said.
