    WI - Ashleigh Love, 19, Milwaukee, 6 Oct 2009

    In the early morning hours of October 6th, 2009, an intruder broke into recent high school graduate Ashleigh Loveís suburban Milwaukee home, shot and killed her...

    Police said the killer carried a shotgun and wore a bandanna over his face, and they believe the murder was not random. Since her death, police havenít officially named any suspects or identified any possible motives.

    Police Sgt. Thomas Stigler told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in December 2009 they believe Love had met with a man on several occasions over that summer. Stigler said the man may have worked in construction, but they have been unable to identify him and havenít named him as a suspect in the case.

    A documentary short about Ashleigh Love, a young girl who was senselessly murdered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

    In the morning hours of October 6, 2009, an intruder broke into the Milwaukee-area home of recent high school graduate Ashleigh Love, walked to her bedroom, and shot her to death while she was sleeping. LETTERS TO ASHLEIGH gives audiences a never-before-seen glimpse at a family that has been hit with an unimaginable tragedy. During the film, the family reads letters they received in the days and weeks following Ashleigh's death; first from close family and friends, and then total strangers from around the country who heard about the story. This short documentary shows how one girl's death inspired an entire community to make a change.
    2014 Milwaukee Press Club GOLD Winner for Best Public Affairs Program, Documentary, or News Special.

    Investigators believe Love used Facebook and MySpace frequently and suspect she met a friend or acquaintance that her close friends and family did not know about, Milwaukee police Lt. Thomas Stigler said.

    Police especially want to speak with a man who is believed to have met with Love on several occasions over the summer, Stigler said.

    Stigler said the man is white and in his early 20s. He has a thin build and is believed to drive a mid-2000s American-made blue pickup truck with a pinstripe along the sides. The truck has chrome rims, tinted windows and a raised suspension.

    The man may have worked in the construction industry this summer, Stigler said.

    October 6th marks 7 years since an intruder broke into their suburban Milwaukee home, and killed 19-year-old Ashleigh as she slept.

    "Each year on October 6th, we come to her gravesite, and I vow to her that until they're caught, I will have a vigil for her, to bring light to the case," says Tammy....

    The family is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

    On a rainy Thursday night at New Berlin's Highland Memorial Park, Tammy Love sat near her daughter Ashleigh's grave, dwelling on another year gone by with few answers.

    "Someone somewhere knows something," Tammy Love said. "We are begging them to come forward. This has left our family heartbroken and devastated. We feel like we are in hell, and we can't climb out."

    Determined to make sure Ashleigh was remembered as more than just a murder statistic,
    South Milwaukee native and award-winning filmmaker Kyle Olson, a close family friend of the Loves, teamed up with the family to chronicle Ashleigh’s life. The resulting film, Letters to Ashleigh, gives audiences a glimpse at a family that has been hit with an unimaginable tragedy but still found a way to persevere with their heads held high.

    I hope one day her loved ones get answers and justice is done. RIP Ashleigh
