It’s been three months since the shooting death of 8-year-old Jada Page and her killer remains on the run. The reward for information that leads to an arrest has increased to $35,000.
Miami-Dade Police says it has received tips from the community, but detectives have not made an arrests and Page’s family and community activists want to know why.
People in the community claim to know who is responsible for killing Jada. In an effort to put pressure on police, activist Tangela Sears and others held a rally Thursday several blocks from the spot where Page was murdered. "Everybody knows who killed Jada," said Sears. She says police have been given that name.
A spoken word artist performed at the rally as family, friends, acitivists and even police officers gathered. Organizers invited Miami-Dade Police officers to the rally to give an update on why no arrests have been made. "From tips, that means whtat we have leads that we're following. It's going to happen when we have what we need to move forward on it," said Major Calvin James.
Jada's family is holds on hope that the killer will be caught. "I'm just looking for justice, that's all I want, justice," said Jada's mom, Rosalind Brown.
The 8-year-old was shot along with her father. He survived. Detectives believe he was the intended target, but in an NBC 6 interview, Jada’s father says he doesn’t know who pulled the trigger.
