CLEVELAND- Tuesday marks two years since the murder of Beachwood nurse and mother of four Aliza Sherman.

While her death remains an unsolved case, Aliza's family and friends are making sure her name and her story aren't forgotten.

"She was just looking forward to moving on," said Jan Lash, of Solon.

Lash still remembers talking to her best friend at about 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 24.

"We just had our usual conversations, girl talk. She was a little anxious because she was going to court soon," Lash said. Little did Lash know it would be their last.

Aliza was murdered just a short time later, outside her divorce attorney's office in downtown Cleveland. The only piece of evidence was from a nearby surveillance camera that showed a person dressed in black running from the scene.

"I'm confident that the case will be solved.  And we will get justice for her," Lash said.

The Justice for Aliza group, an awareness campaign formed by family and friends, will hold a vigil on Tuesday just steps away from the place where Aliza was stabbed 11 times.

In addition to speakers and a moment of silence, there will be a walk to the Cuyahoga County Justice Center carrying red flameless candles.

"The red symbolizes love.  She just loved people, children, that was who she was," Lash said.
