    Thursday marked five years since a young Jacksonville woman was shot to death in her driveway.

    Amber Bass' murder remains a mystery -- and very few tips have been called into Crime Stoppers.

    Crime Stoppers said the last tip they’ve received was on March 8, 2018. They said a total of seven tips have come in since her murder in 2013.

    On July 19, 2013, police said the 22-year-old was robbed and shot outside her Westside home after a night out with friends.  

    Her sister, Robin Lezcano, said they will never give up on solving the case. She said so many lives have been destroyed by the loss.

    “There’s so many more people than just our immediate family that are waiting for answers. Everybody misses her so much,” Lezcano said. 

    She is pleading for her sister’s killer or killers to turn themselves in.

    “Five years is too long, in my opinion. I don’t want to wait another five. I want to know now,” she said.

    Action News Jax reached out to Crime Stoppers to find out how long it’s been since they’ve received tips in the case. 

    We’re still waiting on a response.
