PANOLA CO, MS (WMC) -

Exactly four months ago, Jessica Chambers walked out of her home and told her mom she was going to get some food. She never returned.

Instead, someone lit her and her car on fire, leaving her to die.

After rumors of a possible arrest in this case turned out to be false, the family says they are not giving up on finding justice for Jessica.

"Momma loves you," said Lisa Chambers, Jessica's mother. "I will get you justice if it's the last thing I do."

Four months after her daughters death, Lisa Chambers says investigators still don't know who killed her.

"I think it's ridiculous," she commented. "Somebody knows something."

Since investigators released part of the timeline leading up to Jessica's death, the only thing that has changed is the headstone marking the teen's final resting place.

Investigators asked for tips about where Jessica may have been an hour before she was killed. However, District Attorney John Champion says no one was able to provide that information.

"We just, we got no tips," Champion explained. "We've got nothing from the public. We've gotten no tips, period, that are substantial tips."

After spending months thinking over the possibilities, Lisa Chambers thinks someone may have been after her daughter.

"She was threatened by a couple over money, that's what it boiled," Lisa Chambers explained.

Though rumors of a weekend arrest are not true, Champion says detectives are looking at several potential motives. Investigators are scouring social media and what people are posting online.

"Obviously we've looked at social media and continue to look at social media, things that people post," Champion added. "Yes, if something was relevant in what we've read, yeah, it would be admissible in court."

The Chambers family doesn't know what it would take to get someone to come forward, but Lisa Chambers is confident her daughter's killer will be found.

"It's going to happen," Lisa Chambers said. "I don't know when, I don't know how long, but it will happen."

The reward for information in this investigation is at $54,000. If you know anything, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-2169.
