Family demands justice in triple homicide case
Little Rock (KATV) —
The visitation for a mother and her two children that were murdered last week beings on Friday while police are still searching for leads in the triple homicide case.
During the holidays when most families come together, Derykka Miller and Danielle Robinson are spending the weekend before Christmas preparing to burying three of their loved ones, 24-year-old Mariah Cunningham, 5-year-old Alayah Fisher and 3-Year-old Elijah Fisher, who were found dead last week in their Little Rock apartment.
“We have a lot of family from California, Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland coming in. We are still full of questions, like why and who,” said Miller.
The earthshattering loss of Mariah and her young family is something Miller and Robinson want justice for.
“We want someone to come forward, with information someone knows.” said Miller.
Earlier this week, the Little Rock Police Department offered a $50,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and prosecution in case.
“City hall called over and said we want to up this reward. All unsolved homicides start at $10,000 but bump it up to $50,0000 to see if we can get more leads,” said Officer Steve Moore with the Little Rock Police Department.
According to city officials, the reward money will come from seized funds.
"I appreciate the fact that they have taken the reward up so high, they put their money where their mouth is. It shows they are taking this serious and we appreciate that they have done that and are going to bat for our family,” said Miller.
The funeral for Mariah and her two children will be Saturday at First Baptist Highland Park in Little Rock.
