Arica Schneider fundaiser
"Just her smile, she was a great person. She always made jokes about something. She was just a fun loving carefree kid. She just got caught up with the wrong situation, wrong people," said Arica Schneider's father Paul.
It's been more than three years since Arica was murdered in her Troy apartment. Who killed her and why are questions that still do not have answers. But despite the lack of answers, her family still finds the power to continue on.
"Maybe somebody someday will say, 'Jeez, I got to say something.' They are not going to give up and we are not going to give up until we are dead and gone," said Paul.

Her family is keeping her name out there, hoping somebody knows how 18-year-old Arica's young life ended so tragically.
A golf tournament at Frear Park Golf Course held Saturday will raise money for a memorial fund in her name. One day they hope to find their daughter's killer, but even if they do, they said their pain will linger.
Arica's aunt, Mary Jo Schneider, said, "In regards to the investigation, it's very hard. We see no end in sight, we have no closure. If there is any closure when you lose a child I don't know."
All money raised from the tournament goes toward a $10,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest.
