COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A mother has now been identified by police as the victim in a murder investigation.
24-year-old Jacquiline Wilde was found dead Tuesday afternoon near Astrozon and Hancock Expressway.
Her family says she went by Jackie. They are heartbroken, especially for her 5 year old daughter.
They want to know why someone would do something like this and they want them caught.
"She was a hands on person, unlike most girls especially her age. She had an issue, she'd fix her own car and put it back together. She did the tiling in the kitchen. She was gifted with her hands and gifted with her mind and someone took that away,” Jackie’s Uncle David Wilde said.
The family is left with so many questions. Jackie’s body was discovered on Tuesday afternoon near Sand Creek Trail.
"I talked to her on Monday. She just taught her daughter to roller-skate. She was so happy about that and she was going to bring her out to see me. But it didn't happen,” Jackie’s Grandmother Joyce Wilde said.
At the crime scene, police said her death was suspicious. Now they're investigating it as a homicide.
Jackie's family has a message for the killer.
"Come forward with what you did. You’re a coward. You're an absolute coward, to do this to somebody. Nobody deserves what happened. Nobody deserves that. She didn't deserve it.”
The family is asking anyone who knows anything about what happened to Jackie, to call Crimestoppers at 634-STOP.
You can remain anonymous and could get a reward.
The family has set up a GoFundMe account for funeral expenses.
