CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - It’s been nearly five months since Nickeisha Holloman’s body was found in an empty lot in Mt. Airy. Police are still searching for the 23-year-old’s killer.
“She’s gone, I don’t have nothing left. I don’t have nothing left,” said Keiana Rogers, Holloman’s mother.
Keiana Rogers is still battling through heartbreak after losing her only daughter, known to family and friends as Keisha.
“Just knowing that somebody would take her life and just throw her away like she is garbage is painful," said Rogers.
Holloman’s skeletal remains were found on Mehmert Avenue in Mt. Airy on Aug. 22. She was reported missing on July 1.
Police are now releasing new video of Holloman leaving the Crossroads Center on Burnet Avenue. Police say she got into a white or silver Hyundai Sonata.
"We're really trying to find where that vehicle is and who was driving it at the time," said Det. David Gregory, with the Cincinnati Police Homicide Unit.
Rogers says her daughter called her that last day she was seen to give her a new phone number. Keisha was on her way to a hair appointment but never made it.
“I don’t know what happened after I talked to her. I be trying to image what she went through,” said Rogers.
Police are not yet releasing Holloman's cause of death, but they are ruling it as a homicide.
“She was covered in a pretty heavy layer of mulch. That is one of the things we hope someone remembers -- hey, it’s around July 1, someone came in with a car similar to the one you see on your television and bought mulch -- maybe they were acting in a strange way. It may not be the person but if there’s that one in a million chance make that call,” said Gregory.
Rogers says she’s still angry that her fun-loving daughter who was studying to be a nurse never got to live the life she dreamed of. Now her family is hoping the person responsible for the 23-year-old’s murder is caught and that justice is served.
"I just hope that every time they close they eyes they see her. That's what I want," said Rogers.
