WHO MURDERED IRIS TYSON ON MOTHER'S DAY?
Her grandma Florence Murtha said: "She said I'll be right back. I'm gonna go get a mother's day gift."
But she never came home and after a massive search of her south Philly neighborhood, her body was found in a vacant lot. She had been bludgeoned to death. Her grandma said: "I remember driving around looking for her and thinking 'you're so close, but where?' You need me and I'm not there to help you. And I apologized to her for that. That I wasn't there to help you." But so far, there have been no arrests and cops are not saying if there are even any suspects.
Police have ruled Iris's death a homicide. The family is offering a $3,500 reward. They are hoping someone will come forward with information. Make that anonymous call to 215-546-TIPS. IRIS TYSON MURDER
