WATERBURY - The family of a 16-year-old Bridgeport girl marked the five-year anniversary of her unsolved murder Monday.

Jessica Keyworth was found strangled to death in the stairwell of a partially vacant Waterbury home over Memorial Day weekend in 2004. Waterbury police say Keyworth had plans to meet friends and had taken a train from Bridgeport.

Although it's been five years, Lisa Keyworth, Jessica's grandmother, is still hopeful police will catch the person responsible for her death.

"They have over the past year, two years, had new information," says Lisa Keyworth. "Where it leads, we don't know."
