MOBILE, Ala. (ALA) - The front porch of Lai Robinson's home is adorned with flowers and messages for the 65-year-old mother and grandmother known as the "candy lady".
Neighbors said Robinson sold candy out of the front window of her home to some of the kids around the neighborhood.
Mobile police said she was shot Tuesday, June 18 and later died of her injuries.
"Imagine how happy she was. She just got her citizenship two weeks before this happened. Now her life's just gone," said Robinson's grandson.
Just few blocks away from Robinson's Latimer Lane home, investigators collected items from a home on Meadow Wood circle.
Neighbors said it has been abandoned for some time.
FOX10 News' cameras rolled on investigators taking a white trash bag out of an unmarked vehicle and placing something in it.
Other investigators were taking pictures near the abandoned home.
Robinson's killers have not been caught but police have confirmed one man forced his way into Robinson's house Tuesday night and another man shot through her window.
Robinson's grandson said he was there:
"They're all looking through the window because they see me back there and then they left and came back in 30 minutes and busted out the window," he said.
Detectives said the suspects stole money from her home and ran off.
