TULSA, Okla — For the ninth year, members of the community came together to remember 55-year-old Peggy Gaytan. She was shot and killed while working at a Tulsa gas station at 36th and Harvard in December 2011.

Wednesday night, a vigil was held for Gaytan, whose case is still open. Those who gathered hoped this year's vigil would be different since police did make an arrest. However, prosecutors had to drop the charge after the primary witness refused to testify.

"We want to see this case resolved. We know the crime is solved, we know who did it, he knows who did it,” said Jennifer Harmon, a friend of Gaytan’s. “It's always our hope that Mr. Hamstard would just come forward and be responsible for what he did."

Detectives in this case are working several leads.
