CLEVELAND, OH —  Cleveland Police are still searching for the killer of a Cleveland Clinic nurse who was fatally stabbed downtown three months ago.

Now friends and family are seeking the public’s help and asking city leaders for justice through an online campaign.

Police say 53-year old Aliza Sherman died two days before her divorce trial was set to begin, outside of her attorney’s office on East 9th Street March 24.

Police have released surveillance video taken near the Galleria at Erieview showing a suspect in all black running from the apparent crime scene.

The online petition launched on change.org calls on Mayor Frank Jackson, Police Chief Michael McGrath , and other public safety officials to provide necessary attention and resources to solve the case.  It goes on to say, that the ultimate goal is to secure the safety of women in Cleveland.

Crime Stoppers along with Sherman’s family is offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
