Investigators say there is a $250,000 reward for information in the case. That money was reportedly put up by an anonymous donor.

Housman's mother Diane Bone passed away in 2016.

But three other local mothers are working to keep Angie's case from going cold. The women say they didn't know Angie or her family very well, but they want to help find the person responsible for her horrific death.

They are hosting a candlelit vigil at Buder Elementary School on Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. Everyone is welcome.
