MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

The mother of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers hasn't been able to shut her eyes at night. The thoughts of her daughter burning alive are too much to bear.

As investigators comb through the evidence, Jessica's family is praying that justice will come sooner rather than later.

"Last night's the first night I've slept all night," Lisa Chambers said.

With no arrests or suspects in the case, the Chambers family has to rely on each other and their faith.

"I had a lady call and pray with me, and my dog started barking at the couch beside me, and it was a strange feeling, and I knew it was Jessica," said Lisa, who is preparing to bury her daughter this weekend.

Jessica's funeral will be held on Saturday. A candlelight vigil is scheduled for Friday night. Lisa believes Jessica isn't ready to rest in peace when so many questions still remain.

"She's not going to be at rest until her killer is caught," Lisa added.

Investigators continue to question witnesses and go through evidence, which includes surveillance video and Jessica's phone records that may reveal who she talked to that night.

"She cannot rest. She knows who did this, she has told who did this," said Jessica's mother.

The 19-year-old whispered something to first responders before she died at the hospital, but at this point, it's unclear if whatever she said will help close her case and allow her to rest in peace.

    The man in red likes to take things - a mower and weed eater from one home, change and a cell phone from someone's unlocked truck, even a little red wagon, and a 2-year-old's lunch box. Neighbors said the thief wears all red and a home surveillance camera caught him as he peered into 2-year-old Willia's backyard where she stored her little red wagon.
