Gov. Nathan Deal signed an executive order that offers a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest in the case of Hannah Truelove.
Truelove, a Gainesville High School student, was found dead behind Lake Lanier Club Apartments, where she lived with her mother, on Aug. 24, 2012.
Her body was discovered in a heavily wooded area between the apartment complex and Lake Lanier by a resident. She had been stabbed multiple times.
On Wednesday, for the first time, the victim's mother, Mona Harris, held a news conference to talk about her daughter.
Six long months has taken a toll on Harris and she pleaded for whoever killed her daughter to turn themselves in.
"Please help my family by coming forward with your information, even if that information is about your son or daughter," said Harris.
Police have persons of interest, but not enough conclusive evidence to officially name a suspect.
That's why Harris broke her silence and begged the public for answers.
"Hannah meant and still means the world to me. I spent 16 years watching her grow and develop into a caring and loving young lady. Hannah had such a great sense of humor and a bright future. If you could have known Hannah you would understand how important she was to all our lives," said Harris.
