LITTLE RIVER, S.C. (WPDE) - Family, friends and people from the community came together Friday evening to remember 23-year-old Amber Berbiglia, a college student woman whose death remains unsolved.
About two dozen people gathered under an overpass of the Robert Edge Parkway bridge on Old Sanders Road. It's where her body was found on May 3. She died from blunt force trauma.
"Her life was taken in broad daylight, 3:30 in the afternoon and people have to be aware of what is happening," said Jackie Open, Amber's aunt.
Amber died eight weeks ago, and police still haven't made an arrest. Amber's family misses her dearly and are reminded of their loss as major events come and go. She was set to be married on June 22, and July 16 is her birthday.
"She was sunshine," said Michelle Robinson, Amber's mother, with tears in her eyes. "It's never going to be the same without my angel."
Amber's family pleaded for help from the community.
"People need to know they took a human life. I would want to know who this person is because he may be sitting next to you, he may be your neighbor, he may be your baby sitter, he may be somebody that you work with. Somebody needs to come forward and let people know," added Open.
"Come forward and speak, because you are killing us," said Robinson.
If you have any information about Amber's death, you're asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-S-C. You can remain anonymous.
Her family has set up a website, and there's a $6,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of her killer.
