    Sherry Howard says Kayla was at Jody's on Highway 20 that night, because she gave her friend, 25-year-old Gary Baskins, a ride home. The two had known each other since middle school, and Kayla was just the kind of person willing to help a friend in need.

    "Kayla, being the person with the big heart that she is, came home a little after one and told her little brother, 'I've got to go take a friend home, I'll be back in a little bit' and never made it back," said Howard...

    People were inside the restaurant at the time, and a highway just feet away. The case is not solved, not arrests have been made, and few people have come forward with leads.

    From January:

    Muscle Shoals police vow not to give up on year-old double murder case

    http://meredithaz.worldnow.com/story...le-murder-case

    Despite the lack of physical evidence from the scene. the Muscle Shoals Police Chief says his department won’t stop until the killer is behind bars.

    “nobody deserves to have their life ended this way,” said Chief Robert Evans, Muscle Shoals Police Department, ““the main challenge we’re looking at now it the absence of any eyewitness accounts of the incident.”

    Investigators say there were customers inside the diner, but no one claims to have seen or heard anything that could link a possible shooter to the crime.

    “We want to be able to give the family some closure and more than anything bring the people that were responsible to justice.”

    Families want justice in 2-year-old Shoals double homicide

    http://www.waaytv.com/appnews/famili...7cbfa4049.html

    It's a double homicide that rocked the Shoals two years ago and still does.

    23-year-old Kayla Glover and 25-year-old Gary Wayne Baskins were gunned down outside of Jody's Restaurant in Muscle Shoals in 2015, to this day no arrests have been made.
    For Kayla Glover's family, they too still have a hole in their hearts.

    "It's been a living hell, nothing short of a nightmare," said Kayla Glover's father, Hal Howard.

    Kayla was a mother of two, a wife, and amazing daughter, said the Howards.

    "There will never be complete healing and the pain will definitely never go away," said Sherry Howard, Kayla's mother.

    The Howards say they have tried to be strong for Kayla's little girls, who are too young to fully grasp what has happened but old enough to realize their mommy isn't here.

    "Nobody should have to come to mommy's resting place, as the girls call it," said Sherry.
