CLEVELAND — A family spent time on this cold, snowy weekend going back to the scene of the unsolved murder of a young woman in a desperate attempt to try to keep the case alive.

Way back in April, 2015, someone shot and killed Tina Martin. She was found dead between two houses at 13201 Beechwood Avenue in Cleveland.

Tina’s brother has even worked the streets himself trying to help gather clues, and the family fears this case will get lost in the avalanche of Cleveland violence that shows no signs of letting up.

Mike Martin said, “We want justice. It’s been almost 2 years and nothing has been solved. We are not getting any answers from the Cleveland police.”

Police have told FOX 8 they have, in fact, interviewed people and followed potential leads.

The family held the vigil this weekend since it would have been Tina’s birthday.

Mike Martin added, “Somebody knows something. Speak up, Cleveland. Imagine if it was your loved one.”

Crime Stoppers has offered a reward up to $2,000 for any felony crime, and tipsters can remain anonymous. Call (216) 252-7463.
