Crime Stoppers: Father speaks about daughter's murder mystery

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A father is angry over the murder of his daughter. You'd expect that. But this man is not only angry at the person who took his daughter's life, he's also angry at the investigators who are working this case, now almost two years later.

In June of 2010, Erica Foster was in the passenger seat of a car driven by her boyfriend. At the intersection on Rutledge Drive, a person driving a light green, 2002 to 2004 Nissan Sentra opened fire on the driver. The bullets missed him, but hit Foster, killing her.

Her father says this investigation has been extremely frustrating.

"It seems like no one really cares or looks to find the answer to the murder that's happened here," said Eric Foster.

He said he's only heard from investigators in this case three times, and that was soon after it happened.

"I'm upset at the system that allows this type of thing to take place without properly investigating and keeping us informed on the status of their investigation," he said.

And how her supposed boyfriend could just walk away without a word on a suspect is mind-boggling.

"When it's someone who's close to you who's been killed and it's someone who you're supposedly friends with, you'd think someone who knew would come forward and say something," said Foster.

Hopefully someone will provide information that leads to justice for this senseless and cowardly act.

If you have any information, make the anonymous call to 256-53-CRIME(7463). There's up to a thousand dollars in reward money.
