Friends, family gathering to pray for answers in Florence murder case

FORT MITCHELL, Ky. - The murderer of a mother of two is still on the run three months to the day after she was found dead.

The Boone County Sheriff's Office is still investigating the murder of Michelle Mockbee, but Wednesday night, friends and family of the Fort Mitchell mom are turning to faith to help find justice.

A large group is expected to gather at Blessed Sacrament Church for a candlelight vigil, where they plan to pray over the case, and for Mockbee's killer to be arrested.

Family and friends are planning to start outside the church by lighting candles, then move inside the church to pray. They'll come back outside the church with candles lit once the vigil is over.

Mockbee was found murdered at her Florence workplace May 29. Boone County Sheriff's deputies say she was assaulted near the office area of the building. No weapon was found at the scene.

She leaves behind a husband and two young children.

The candlelight vigil is Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. at Blessed Sacrament Church on Dixie Highway in Fort Mitchell.
