GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Monique Marlowe lived a life of adventure, according to her mother, but six weeks after the 24-year-old Gwinnett County woman was shot and killed, police still have no idea who pulled the trigger.

A single shot struck and killed Marlowe outside a Hertz Rental Car near the Gwinnett Place Mall on Sept 21. Marlowe worked at the business on Satellite Boulevard and was tending to one of the rental cars when she was shot, police said.

Marlowe's parents talked to Channel 2 Gwinnett County Bureau Chief Kerry Kavanaugh on Tuesday.

"She was so, so good," Maria Marlowe said of her daughter.

Marlowe's parents showed Kavanaugh video of Monique skydiving just six days before her death.

The Marlowes are in daily contact with the Gwinnett Police department, but there have been very few leads in the case.

"We're desperate for answers," Dan Marlowe said.

"Essentially this is going to take a tip from the public or from someone who knows the person responsible for this case," Cpl. Jake Smith told Kavanaugh.

Police are distributing flyers letting people know a tip in the case could earn them a $25,000 reward.

"The smallest thing they can remember, let the police know so they can investigate it and maybe come up with something," Maria Marlowe said.

The smallest thing could be Monique's favorite necklace. Her parents aren't sure if she was wearing it the day she died but they haven't located it since. They hope it could lead to their daughter's killer.

"Hopefully someone else's daughter will be spared if they catch him," Dan Marlowe.

Police said they are also investigating a burglary that happened at the Hertz the following day to see if there are any connections.

If you have any information in the case you are urged to call Gwinnett County police.
