NEW MARKET, AL (WAFF) -

Investigators continue to work to solve this week's mass murder case that stretched from Alabama to Tennessee. Today one of the victims' families said goodbye to their loved one as she was laid to rest.

21-year-old Amber McCaulley was found dead in a home on Huntsville Highway in Lincoln County, Tennessee along with her friend Chabreya Campbell and Campbell's 1-year-old son - Rashad Ragland.

Hundreds of people gathered Saturday afternoon to mourn the loss of a daughter, a mother, a sister, a friend.

Patricia Strickland is faced with unimaginable grief, after losing her daughter, Amber.

"I just blame myself. I couldn't tell her I loved her. I just want to tell her I love her," said Strickland.

Strickland said she doesn't know what Amber's plans were for that night, but she thinks she was set up.

"She wouldn't have put herself in harm's way, to end up away from her baby," said Strickland.

But she knew something was wrong when Amber left the house unexpectedly and didn't come back.

"I told investigators you need to call them back and tell them it's not my daughter. It can't be my daughter. He just told me, yes ma'am it is," said Strickland.

The funeral service for McCaulley was held at a church in New Market. Family members say Amber will be greatly missed by many.

"To me, there will never be anything or anybody to fill this hole that I am feeling," said Strickland.

McCaulley leaves behind a two-month-old daughter.
