CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A Charlotte family desperate for answers pleads with the public for help in solving the murder of their beloved mother and grandmother.

Sacore Gray was found shot to death in her bed early last Friday, and police haven't found her killer.

She was a rock in her west Charlotte community

Her brother, Robert Lindsay says, “She was a grandmother, she was an aunt, she was my best friend,”

He struggles to keep his composure when telling reporters about his sister, 49-year-old Sacore Gray.

“She’s been in the community she would raise children that weren’t hers. She would feed these kids, she would wash their clothes. She was just that type of person.”
 
She also cared full time for her bedridden mother.

“She put her life on hold to take care of her mom and it takes a special person to that, she just did, she stepped up.”

She was found shot to death in her bed last Friday morning. Police believe she was killed sometime during the night, but they don't know much else.

“When someone is lying in their bed sleeping, someone who is responsible for another human being...to just senselessly take her life is very hard.”

Just as hard, he says, not knowing who killed her, not understanding why.

Police spent Thursday in her neighborhood  passing out Crimestoppers flyers hoping someone will anonymously call in and help the investigation.

“I need somebody to help make somebody accountable for this senseless act,” he said.
