"It is horrible thing that happened to my mother a horrible horrible thing. There is no one that should get away with that, no one!"

Carol Belmont says she has been living a nightmare
The  passage of nearly four years has not eased the pain of how her 97 year  old mother Gertrude Price died. Brutally beaten to death inside her East Grand Street home in Nanticoke..

Someone broke in through a basement window, killed Price and ransacked her home.

 
"All I'm looking for is closure. I'm just looking for someone to come forward and tell us to tell us what they know .It might be a little bit but it might be a big thing."

Belmont says her mother spent Thanksgiving day with her at her Jackson Township home..She wanted her mother to stay the night-- but her mom insisted she wanted to go home to sleep in her own bed...

 "I often think what a strong person she was. 97 years old and she never took a pill, cut her own grass, did her own house work, shoveled her own sidewalks. She always sat at the head of the table at Thanksgiving and we think of her every holiday."

Belmont knows holidays that will never be the same..but says..

 
"Every night I pray that there is closure for us. That we know what happened to her.. so maybe she could rest in peace too."

Investigators tell the I-Team they are following several leads.  But can not say much not to jeopardize the investigation,  Anyone with information is asked to call police.
