CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Justice for Aliza Sherman.

Monday marked one year since the Cleveland Clinic fertility nurse was murdered in downtown Cleveland. The attack happened in broad daylight outside of her attorney's office building near the intersection of East 12th and Hamilton Avenue.

Cleveland Police tell us they do have a few people they are interested in but those people are "not cooperating." And even though there are still no arrests in the case, family and friends of  Sherman say they'll continue to fight for justice.

"Every single day since the moment this has happened has been difficult, so this is just another difficult day," says Jennifer Sherman.

"Maybe somebody knows something. Maybe someone will talk to someone that will be able to give some information," says Jan Lash.

Cleveland Police have grainy security video of a person running away from the scene, but there have been no arrests.

Family and friends gathered for a ceremony in Sherman's honor at the corner of East 12th and Hamilton, near 75 Erieview Plaza and The Galleria.

Instead of being able to heal, Sherman's family has worked to keep the public informed in hopes of getting someone who knows what happened to step forward.

"The most horrific nightmare I could have ever imagined," said daughter Jennifer Sherman. "Anything beyond one moment without justice is too long for."

"We vow that we will identify those individuals responsible for the heinous crime," says Ed Czinn, Sherman's brother.

"My beautiful mother. My greatest gift in life stolen away by that coward with a knife," Jennifer Sherman said.

There is a $50K reward for the arrest of Sherman's killer. Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 216-252-7463 or visit the Crime Stoppers web site and leave a confidential web tip. With Crime Stoppers, you never give your name - you remain anonymous.
