Today’s anniversary tribute is written by Jessica Raleigh, whose mother, Delores “Toni” Hornung was shot to death in their Keokuk, Iowa home on Valentine’s Day 1999.
Jessica posted the following comment on her mother’s case summary page:
“I am Toni’s daughter and it has been very hard living without my mother, and the fact that we have no answers about her murder makes it that much harder, not only for me but my family as well.
I also believe that her murder and the young man’s death are linked. I just hope that we will find out who did this.
She was a great woman, mother, daughter, sister, friend, cousin and so much more and was loved by so many people. All I ask is if anyone knows anything, even the littlest thing, to come forward because it may help solve this case.”
