Brandy Council, known by her nickname "Cappucino," was fatally shot back in Dec. 2015. That case remains unsolved over 2 years later.

Council's family, along with a Savannah Police Violent Crimes detective, met on Thursday in hopes of finding out some more information on the unsolved homicide, according to a news release.

Council and three other men were shot in the 100 block of West 33rd Street on Dec. 2, 2015. The men were treated for non-life-threatening injuries, but Council died from her wounds.

“We want to remind people that four people were shot this day, and we want to try to bring them some closure and some justice,” Sgt. Robert Santoro said in the release. “We want to remember Brandy for the special person she was and how important she was to this family.”

Council left behind three children, two of whom attended the request for information Thursday.

“We miss her and we loved her,” said Tiffany Cannady, Council's sister. “I just want justice for my sister. It’s just as plain as that. If this happened to your family members, you would want justice for your family members as well. It was my sister today, but it could be somebody else’s sister tomorrow.”
