The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office said the homicide investigation of a 20-year-old Roebuck woman remains open, three years after she was found dead.

Investigators said Erika Spencer was found strangled to death inside a home on Davis Road on May 21, 2015, just 4 days shy of her 21st birthday.

Now,3 years later, Erika's family said they are still looking for answers about what happened that night.

Investigators determined that someone was with Spencer during the time that she died, however that person's identity has not been revealed. Investigators said this is still an active investigation and no suspects have been named. 

Erika's family said they want answers and will not stop fighting until justice is served.

"Until somebody will tell me what happened in the last 24 hours of her life, there isn’t going to be any closure," Brenda Eason said, "Living without her is horrible. That was my baby."

Erika was pregnant at the time of her death and she also leaves behind a young son, who her mom is now raising.

"I brought him here on Mother’s Day for the first time and he could find her grave by himself. He went running across and said, she’s here isn’t she," Eason said, "Nobody should have to go through that."

Erika's family will hold a graveside vigil on Saturday, May 26 at 1:00 PM at Springhill Cemetery in Chesnee. 

Anyone with information about Erika Spencer's death is asked to contact the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIMESC.
