ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Ebony Jackson's mother is speaking publicly about the mysterious murder exactly one week after her daughter went missing.

Members of Ebony's family came to continue their plea for help from the public to find the killer. Ebony's father and several aunts came from Paducah, Kentucky.  Her mother Stella Jackson came in from Denver, Colorado.  Having such a large family is making this burden easier to bear. But, it is still very hard for any of them to believe; much less understand.

"I have no idea how anyone could feel like they could take a person's life and its okay.  I am just at a loss for words and trying to process it still." said Stella Jackson.

"I know somebody out there knows something somewhere, I know somebody saw something. yes we are very grateful for the baby but we also lost our other baby and that's not right, that's not fair." said Ebony's Aunt Gayle Mitchell.

Ebony came to town last week from Oklahoma City to show off her three month old baby boy to family and friends in East St. louis. But, no one heard from her after Thursday. On Friday her baby was found abandoned in Breckenridge Hills.

Then on Tuesday Ebony's body was found in the trunk of her car. She had been shot once in the head.

There is a prayer vigil being held from 3-4pm at the Gregg Chapel AME Church in the 4400 block of Elmbank in North St. Louis. The vigil is being held on the same block where Ebony's body was found.

On Saturday and Sunday the family and the community will be collecting money from 8am-2pm at 89th and State Streets in East St. Louis to help pay for Ebony's funeral.
