Justice for Lila Leach
It's a act of violence, in a close community. In July, a 96-year-old woman was brutally attacked in Newberry.
Today, about 20 detectives from the Alachua County Sheriff's Office hit the streets of the small town, reminding the community they haven't forgotten about 96-year-old Lila Leach.
In july, while inside her home, Leach was robbed, brutally beaten, and left for dead.
For the third time since the attack, detectives went door to door, passing out more than a thousand flyers to members of the community.
"We're all in this together," said Elaine May, Leach's daughter, "yes it was my mother, but if this person is loose, there's going to be somebody else. This wasn't an isolated incident in that regard, it wasn't somebody that got angry one day and did this...more things are liable to happen if she or he is not caught."
