MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -- Loved ones of a murder victim begged for answers Sunday night at a candlelight vigil and balloon release in her honor.

Mattie Harris was found shot and killed on her porch Tuesday morning on 3rd Avenue in Moultrie.

Sunday night, her family members had a message to anyone who knows anything about the crime.

"I'm crying out to the community to find out who murdered my mama," said Joyce Green, Harris's daughter. "I just want anybody that saw anything to come forward."

"I hate that that happened," said Virginia Green, Harris's niece. "Whoever did that to my auntie, please come forward. Mattie was a good person. She gave her heart to anybody that she could help."

Officials say anyone who may have been in the area of 3rd Avenue in Moultrie from 6:30 a.m. to 7:10 a.m. Tuesday should contact the Moultrie Police Department Tip Line at (229) 890-5449 or the GBI at (229) 225-4090.
