FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Family members of a 31-year-old woman who died in 2018 will be among those taking part in a prayer walk Tuesday in Fort Wayne. The matter itself remains unresolved.

31-year-old Misty Gebhart died from a gunshot wound to the head inside a home in the 600 block of Riverside Avenue. Police say her boyfriend, his son and his mother were inside the house at the time of the incident, though the Allen County coroner ruled to manner of death to be “undetermined.”

There have been no arrests and no charges related to the investigation.

In 2020, on the second anniversary of her passing, Gebhart’s mother told ABC21 that she believed there are people with information that was yet to be shared with police.

“It’s bad enough when a parent loses a child, but it’s even worse when it’s done in such a violent way. And on the reverse side of that, you can’t get justice,” Kim Wiehe said.

Wiehe doesn’t believe her daughter killed herself, but says that prosecutors have told her they can’t take action unless more evidence is uncovered or a witness comes forward.

Tuesday’s prayer walk is set to begin at 6:30 at the corner of Riverside and Spy Run. The victim’s advocacy group JAVA is helping organize the event.
