Family offers reward for information about death

By  | 

It's been nearly a month since someone found her body in a lake, but a Richmond woman's family says they still have more questions than answers as to what happened to her.

Tonselara Miller had been missing for a week before she was found dead. While police continue to investigate the case, her family is now raising the stakes hoping someone comes forward with new leads.

"I still don't have all the answers to know what actually happened," says Miller's sister Lisa Baxter.

Miller was last seen February 26 and was found dead in Lake Reba days later.

"She doesn't like water and the lake wasn't one of those places she'd go," says Baxter.

Though Police don't suspect foul play, Miller's family isn't buying it and is now offering a $1,000 reward for more information.

"They have their opinion and we have ours as a family," says Baxter.

Baxter claims the day of her sister's disappearance, Miller called a cab and went to the bank and then got dropped of at the Social Security office on Gibson Bay Drive, but Lake Reba is about a mile away, another factor Baxter finds odd.

"Health wise I just don't think she was physically able to walk that far," says Baxter.

Richmond Police say witnesses have come forward pinpointing Miller alone at the lake, but investigators are still awaiting toxicology reports, and they don't know if it will reveal any more answers.

"Obviously the family would like to know what happened and we'd like to tell them what happened, but it might be a case of where we won't know exactly what happened when she fell into the lake," says Richmond Police Major Bob Mott.

But Miller's family remains determined.

"If anybody knows anything, please that's our sister," says Baxter. "We love her so much and there's a lot of unanswered questions we'd like to know."
