KETTERING, Md. (WUSA) -- It was an incredible show of love and support and concern. Nearly three weeks after 17 year-old Amber Stanley was found shot to death in her Prince George's County home, residents filled the Kettering Community Center to hear police talk about their efforts to solve the case; efforts that now include a significant outreach to the public for information that could lead to an arrest.
Irma Gaither, Amber's mother, was one of those in attendance Monday night. She said she has no idea who killed her daughter, a young woman whom she described as talented and loving, and whose absence has made her life extremely painful.
"I miss her, that's my baby. I'm just waiting to wake up, I'm hoping this is a horrible dream. I'm just walking around waiting to wake up," Gaither said.
