As reported on News Center 7 at 5:30, Anderson’s mom, Bobbie Mullins, said her daughter’s death has had a huge impact on their family dynamic.

“On Mondays, I am a mother who’s grieving her daughter. The rest of the week, I’m a grandmother who’s helping her grandkids grieve their mother,” Mullins said. “She has five children, two of which are grown, one of whom is a disabled adult, and two teenagers, we all want answers. We got cheated.”

After a year with no closure, Mullins is fed up and wants answers.

“You can’t bring my daughter back but you can at least give us the satisfaction of knowing somebody else isn’t going to go through what we did. Because this person is still loose,” Mullins said.
