Okfuskee County, OK-- People from all across the globe have contributed to the memorial sitting on a rural dirt road honoring Skyla Whitaker, 11, and Taylor Pashcal-Placker, 13, both of Weleetka.
Both girls were gunned down and killed on June 8.
Miles of woods have been combed through near the memorial site and while it's been nine months since their deaths, their families say it feels like it was just yesterday.
"People say you'll heal in time, but when does time start?" said Peter Placker, Taylor's father.
Time stopped for him the moment the tragedy struck.
"Sometimes I'll just go off by myself and cry for her," Placker said.
His grief met a community's resolve Sunday afternoon, to keep both their memories alive by holding a prayer service near the memorial site.
"I feel grateful for this community for helping me through this," he said.
More than 400 leads have yet to result in any arrest of a suspect and besides not knowing who killed his daughter the hardest part, Placker says, is her not being with him,
There is a person of interest in the case. He's described as a Native American in his mid-30's, about six feet tall with long dark hair. He was last seen driving a white truck with Oklahoma tags. If you have any information, you're urged to call the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation at (800) 522-8017.
