EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- It's a question that's haunted our area for years, who killed Angelina Wall?
12 years ago Sunday, the 22 year old Eau Claire woman was found murdered outside Fall Creek.
Jan. 6, 2001, the Eau Claire County Sheriff’s Department said Wall was found strangled to death along County Highway J.
Investigators believe something happened to Wall when she was walking from her job at McDonald’s on Hastings Way in Eau Claire to her home off Birch Street.
Wall’s mother Lori Bednarcyzk spoke with WEAU 13 News Sunday about the murder.
“In the very beginning I thought it would be resolved within the week,” Bednarcyzk said.
After more than a decade of investigating and following up on leads, the murder case has gone cold.
Wall’s mom said she never thought she'd be waiting this long for a resolution.
“Nothing new, they must not have enough leads to keep it going,” Bednarcyzk said.
She worries Angelina’s murderer is still out there and could kill again.
“Whoever has done it has done it once, he's capable of it,” Bednarcyzk said.
A white cross marks the spot on County Highway J where Wall was found, but that's not the only thing that's keeping her memory alive.
Bednarcyzk said she takes any opportunity to talk about her daughter, hoping someone will finally come forward with information.
“Let me have some closure. I'm getting up there in age, this mom sure would like to have some closure before I die,” Bednarcyzk said.
The grieving mother said she wants to remind parents to make sure kids know they're loved.
“Give them a hug every day; make sure you tell them you love them before they walk out the door,” Bednarcyzk said.
There is a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the Angelina Wall murder case.
