Community honors young girl killed in home invasion


It's been three months since an Elkhart girl was killed during a home invasion.
Now, her parents are talking, as the community rallies behind them.

Folks were working up a sweat during a Zumba party to honor Kristyana Jackson, Saturday.

She was shot at her Elkhart home back in August.

Half of the money raised from the Zumba party will be added to the CrimeStoppers reward.  

Kristyana's father wants justice and closure for his family.

"Just get these people off the street so it doesn't happen again to someone else because they took our baby and we'll never get that back," says Kristyana's father John Jackson.

Kristyana's mother, Kimi Jackson says, "They robbed us of her future.  School, dances, wedding, graduation.  They robbed us of all of that."

Anyone with information about Kristyana's murder is encouraged to call the Elkhart Police Department.
