Family seeks answers after woman set on fire

- The family of Tracy Adams said they’re still waiting on closure, four months after she died from her injuries.

On August 28, family told police Adams burst into their DeLand home on fire. Her vehicle had been set ablaze with her inside. Tracy would die from her injuries on September 9.

"I won't ever be able to hug her, love her, all I have is memories," said Tracy’s mother Marilyn, speaking publicly for the first time Tuesday.

Marilyn said despite all the time that has passed, they still have not been made aware of an arrest or even a suspect being named by the police.

Chris Graham, a spokesman for the City of DeLand, said police are interviewing witnesses to bring the case to the state attorney. He said from the day of the incident that they knew who they were looking for in the case, but that it’s a complex case.

Still, he said the situation has not been forgotten and is still a priority.  Marilyn said family members continue to keep in close contact with investigators and hope to hear an arrest is made soon.

"The person that did what they did to my daughter is still alive, still walking this Earth,” she said. "I want justice for my child, because I love her and I no longer have her here."
