CAPTURED UNSOLVED 120
LACY FERGUSON, 25
August 24, 2003 was an important day for 25-year-old Lacy Ferguson. She was preparing to celebrate her daughter's third birthday. Lacy and her boyfriend went to a convenience store near her home in Modesto to get some last minute items, but while they were at the store, a fight broke out between gangs. Shots were fired and Lacy, an innocent bystander, was hit in the head. She later died at the hospital. Lacy's boyfriend was shot in the arm and survived. A gang member was also hit and survived. Five days after the murder, Lacy's mom, Boni Driskill, wrote a letter to the local newspaper, addressing her daughter's killers and promising they would eventually be captured. Not long after, a drive-by shooter riddled Boni's house with bullets.
Police say Lacy was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time when rival gangs got into a fight.
Authorities haven't been able to track down any suspects.
Witnesses could only give vague descriptions of the shooters and the car they were driving.
Boni Driskill believes more than two dozen people may know who fired the fatal shot.
There is a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and a conviction.
