BRIDGEPORT - A Bridgeport family is still waiting for answers on the sixth anniversary of a teenager's murder.

Jessica Keyworth, 16, was found dead in the stairwell of a partially vacant home in Waterbury over Memorial Day weekend in 2004.

Police say she had taken a train to Waterbury to meet some friends but never showed.

Her grandmother says police recently performed new DNA tests that they will be able to compare to a national database.

A $50,000 reward is being offered in the case.
