A desperately grieving mother never dreamed it would be three years since her daughter's murder and she'd still have no answers. News On 6 crime reporter Lori Fullbright reports Brittany Phillips was killed on September 27, 2004, and police are no closer to finding her killer.

Maggie Zingman has tried everything to attract attention to her daughter's case. She hands out flyers at Tulsa's busiest intersection, she's put the case on YouTube.com and MySpace.com, she has even gotten America's Most Wanted to feature it on their website, amw.com. Brittany was a college student living at a South Tulsa apartment complex when police found her body inside, her front door open.

"She had been sexually assaulted and the medical examiner ruled death by strangulation," said Tulsa Police Officer Leland Ashley.

It appears Brittany’s murder was a random, stranger attack.

"Someone maybe has talked about this case, told someone about it, we hope someone comes forward so we can bring closure to this," Leland said.

Police have ruled out hundreds of suspects in the case with DNA and are frustrated not to be closer to an arrest. Finding and catching a suspect is all Brittany’s mother lives for, she's made a promise to her daughter to keep searching and she intends to keep that promise.

Anyone with information on Brittany’s murder can call Crimestoppers at 596-COPS. No one will know who you are and if your tip leads to an arrest you'll be eligible for a cash reward.
