Winnsboro Family: "Please Help Us Find Our Daughter's Murderer"

19-year-old Brittany McGlone of Winnsboro was murdered, Friday May 4th.  Authorities tell KLTV 7 her body was found off of County Road 4837 at her boyfriend's house near Lake Winnsboro. 

Today (Monday, May 14th), for the first time Brittany's family spoke about her daughter.

Brittany's mother, Patricia Tice said her daughter was truly original, a young vibrant girl with a bright future.

"She was all about family. She loved her family. Her family loved her. We still love her," said Patricia Tice. "She had the biggest heart and loved everyone unconditionally." "She loved: to sleep, T-shirts with funny little sayings on them, flip flops and blue jeans. She was always a tomboy. The only time she had makeup on her face was when her step-mom put makeup on her for her senior prom. That was the only time she ever wore makeup."

Brittany graduated from Winnsboro high school, last year. She had taken a year off before heading to college, and was working two jobs.

"When she would be at work at night and she'd have a break she'd text me in the middle of the night. (She did that) every night, and say 'hi mom, whatcha doing, how you feeling?' She was just always checking on everybody," said Tice.

Brittany's grandma, Hazel Bumpous, says the two shared a special bond, "She was our world. Somebody took that away and I will never be the same without her."

"She was so very precious, she was alive till the very very end," said Tice. "This tragedy has united broken families, and its united this community. Even in death look at all the good she's done for us."

The family wants East Texans to know: "Families and friends hold each other and never miss an opportunity to say I love you. Thank you for every kind word and prayer. Please please help us find our daughter's murderer."

Wood County Investigators say they do have suspects, but are waiting on DNA results to come back. If you have any information, you're asked to call the Wood County Sheriff's Department.
