HALIFAX COUNTY, Va. – Loved ones are still looking for answers in the death of a woman from Halifax County.

On Saturday, friends and family gathered in a fight for justice for Emma Layne.

They're hoping someone will come forward with information. 

The 52-year-old was last seen leaving the Cody Convenience Store in Nathalie, where she worked, in June 2017.

Five months later, hunters found her remains in a shallow grave off of Sandy Ridge Road. 

Deputies are investigating her death as a homicide.
