COLD CASE: The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office and the

information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for
the death of 16-year old Amber Woods.


Detectives
continue to follow leads in connection to the murder of Amber Woods, whose
body was discovered on 02/11/2006 about 20 feet off the south side of St. Rd.
62 about three miles west of the Hardee County line.



An
autopsy confirmed that Amber died from a gunshot wound to an undisclosed part
of the body. Amber was last seen alive
by her Aunt at their residence at 3103 St. Rd. 62 in Hardee County, at
approximately 12:30 Saturday morning (02/11/06) Detectives believe Amber may
have left the house on her own early Saturday morning as there is no evidence
that she was forcibly taken from the residence.



Dozens
of interviews have been conducted, however, no arrest has been made. At this
time, a motive for the shooting is unclear.



Anyone
with information on this Cold Case is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at
