Loved ones of a slain Greenville teenager will host a memorial birthday block party in her honor on Saturday evening.

Alicia Moore disappeared in November after getting off her school bus a block from her home and was found dead 40 miles away several days later. She would have turned 17 this month.

Moore’s family says the memorial birthday party is open to the public. They hope the event keeps her memory alive and continues to remind people that her killer is still free.

So far, no suspects have been named and no arrests made in her slaying.

Investigators, which include the Greenville Police Department, Texas Rangers and Van Zandt County Sheriff’s Office, have remained tight-lipped about the investigation. Investigators have not even released the autopsy report that explains how Moore died.

The memorial block party begins Saturday at 6 p.m.
