EVANSVILLE, Ind. — A southwestern Indiana woman is still looking for answers eight years after her mother was gunned down while working in a convenience store.Bobbie Jo Cook-Denham tells the Evansville Courier & Press (http://bit.ly/1ayTi7G ) she still remembers the last phone call from her mother, Jean, after she was shot on Oct. 6, 2005. She told her daughter a female had shot her, but those were her last words. Jean Cook died three days later at age 56.

Detective Randy Chapman says there's no surveillance video and the scene yielded few clues to the shooter's identity.

Investigators say that since there were no witnesses to Cook's slaying, they need someone with direct knowledge of what happened to come forward.

They remain hopeful that a tip will pan out.
