CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Thursday marks five years since UNC student Faith Hedgepeth was brutally murdered in her apartment.

Police say they continue to work on the case daily believing someone may have information that can assist in the investigation.

Faith’s sister believes Chapel Hill police will one day solve the case.

"It's a struggle every day, not understanding why.” said Rolanda Hedgepeth. “Why did this happen to her?”

"I know that we're not going to stop working it until it's solved," said Chapel Hill Assistant Chief Celisa Lehew.

Wednesday night, UNC students held a candle-light vigil in memory of Faith Hedgepeth. Alpha Pi Omega sorority hosted the vigil.

A scholarship fundraiser is also scheduled for the Faith's Smile scholarship on Saturday, Sept. 16 in Hollister.

The scholarship goes to a Native American female freshmen to help with tuition.
