TMJ4 News spoke with Booker’s father, Leonard Larry. He is desperate to find justice.

“She didn’t have to die like that,” Larry said.

Police say Booker was killed last Sunday by 41-year-old Terry Jackson whose still on the run.

On her home’s doorbell camera, her final moments can be seen. She was reluctantly seen walking outside her home with Jackson.

At the family’s request, TMJ4 News is not showing the video.

“It was like, my daughter looked back, like, ‘help me dad.’ My daughter would have ran, but she took that for her kids, because she did not want him to go back in there and do something to her kids," Larry said.

The City of Racine Police Department shared new pictures of Terry Jackson. Jackson is the suspect wanted for the homicide of 30-year-old Brittany Booker.

Larry says his daughter begged for help before she was killed.

She was a friend of an ex-girlfriend of Jackson. He is accused of attacking that woman with a hammer in February.

“Listen, we ain’t out the woods yet. This guy is doing what he wants to do, and I don’t understand it,” Larry said. “I need all eyes. Anybody eyes all over. Please help me. I want to bring my daughter’s killers to Justice. Brittany, I promise you, this case is not going cold.”
