Friends and family of Elizabeth Lightfoot gathered to say one last goodbye on Sunday night at the Lakewood Theater in Dallas.
The 22-year-old hairstylist was found on Preston Road on November 4. Dallas police said she was burned alive in her own car.
A microphone was passed around during the memorial. Friends and family members shared memories, talked about how she touched their lives.
For the first time since her daughters death, Elizabeth's mother spoke to the media. “She was accepting of everyone, loving and one of the kindest individuals you could ever meet,” said Barbara Lightfoot.
Pictures were shown on a screen as music played. “Unfortunately when this happens, it makes you realize how much people mean to you,” said a former teacher of Elizabeth's, Teresa Reyna.
Her family said they want closure; Dallas Police haven’t made an arrest in her case. This is why the family is pleading for help, if anyone knows anything, they ask them to call Dallas Police.
Oak Farms Dairy is offering up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the person who killed Lightfoot by setting her car on fire with her inside.
Lightfoot was last seen leaving Your Way Burgers and Wings in Farmers Branch with friends late on the Night of November 3rd. Two and a half hours later, firefighters discovered her body in her burning car behind an office building on Preston Road just north of Arapaho Road.
Friends said they are certain it must be someone she knew. "It would be really hard to imagine some random person all of a sudden. I would look at people she knows, people closest to her," said Arden Keshishian, her former boss.
