Murder victim's mom at vigil: 'We just want justice'

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- One year ago, a friend found the bodies of two young Phoenix women who had been strangled.

On Saturday, the mothers of those women help a candlelight vigil that was open to the public. Friends and family attended, writing notes to the victims on pink balloons and releasing them into the cold night sky.

The mothers hope that the vigil in front of the east Phoenix home where the women were killed reminds people about the crime. They also hope that new tips come in to police.

Melissa Mason and Nicole Glass were found dead on Dec. 3, 2010, and police believe they were killed no earlier than 8 p.m. the day before.

They were both 27 years old, and Mason was two months pregnant at the time. She was waiting until Christmas to tell her mother the good news. 

"We just want justice," said Rachel Glass, Nicole's mother, at the vigil.

Police have no suspects and have exhausted all their leads.
