THORNTON TOWNSHIP, Ill. (WLS) -- A $10,000 reward is being offered to find the person who killed Ramona Shelton in Thornton Township in April.

Ramona Shelton's body was found inside her vehicle, parked in her driveway in front of her home, in the 15500-block of South Paxton Street.

Shelton had been shot multiple times. The Cook County Sheriff's Office said at the time that the last time Shelton had been seen was that morning when she left to get lunch for contractors working on her home. Police said it appeared she never left her driveway.

Ramona Shelton's sister, Amanda Anderson, said Wednesday that she cannot imagine why anyone would want to hurt her sister.

"It is a mystery, so we really need the help of the community at this time. She's poured out so much, and so we need some of that reciprocated," Anderson said

Shelton's friends are the ones putting up the money for the reward.
