Keira Banks was 24 years old when she was murdered. She was found in the doorway of her home in Seminole County, Florida, more than 10 years ago, and the person responsible for her death has yet to be brought to justice.
At around 10 p.m. on Nov. 16, 2007, deputies with the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a home in the 200 block of Stefanik Road in Winter Park after receiving a 911 call about a shooting, The Orlando Sentinel reported.
When officers arrived on the scene, they encountered Banks, who at the time was a nursing student at Seminole Junior College, in the doorway of her home.
She was unconscious, and she had been shot.
A 2-year-old girl, believed to be Banks’ daughter, was found uninjured inside the home.
Emergency first responders transported Banks to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where she succumbed to her injuries two days later at around 12:30 p.m., according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
After questioning residents in the area, police learned from two witnesses that the shooting happened around 10:20 p.m. Three or four black males were seen fleeing from Banks’ home in a blue or green Crown Victoria or Grand Marquis.
The vehicle may have had at least one hubcap missing.
The victim’s mother told WCTV that they “all loved her, and it’s just having to get up and think about the other kids that I have.”
“And to certainly think about the things that they need to see in me, the encouragement and the strength to move forward and to go on with their lives.”
Investigators have worked diligently to find Banks’ killer, but ultimately, her case remains unsolved.
