CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Virginia Rogers James is still hoping for answers and an arrest 25 years after someone broke into her grandmother's Chattanooga home and killed her.
Rogers says that the anniversary of the death of Mena Ritchie is hard to deal with every year, but she's hoping someone will step forward with the information to solve the case.
Rogers found her grandmother dead on July 24, 1989 in the home where 69-year-old lived alone. Police say it appears someone was looking for cash that Ritchie was rumored to have hidden. In the wake of the slaying, police combed through the house.
Police Sgt. Bill Phillips says any information could be the key to solving the long-standing puzzle and are hoping the anniversary brings someone forward.
