It's been four weeks since 26-year-old Chante Johnson was shot in the head, then pushed out of a car to die.  Now her family says they just want answers, since there still hasn't been any arrests.
"To the person who did kill her, I hope her face haunts him every day, I hope that when they go to sleep and when they wake up, they see my sister's face," says Chante Johnson's sister, Christina.
In early March, police were called to the 5800 block of Delabarre Place, near Smoke Ranch Road and Jones Boulevard, where they found Chante dead from a gunshot wound.
The 26-year-old had four children ranging in age from five months to eight years old.
Christina and the rest of her family are left with memories and pictures. They're frustrated that there hasn't been an arrest, especially since they feel there is so much evidence.
Surveillance video shows a dark SUV that police believe Chante was in just moments before her murder.
Christina says she hopes somebody can come forward with more information to help her family finally have some peace.
"It's never going to bring her back, or help the pain go away, but it would bring some sort of closure," says Christina.
Investigators say there are some leads in the case, but they need more evidence.
