(BLOOMINGTON) - Two years after Crystal Grubb's murder, her mother held a remembrance walk at People's Park in Bloomington Monday night.

Hoping the walk would bring attention to the unsolved murder of her 29-year-old daughter.

Her mother, Janice Grubb, is hoping for justice.

The Herald-Times reports, Monroe County Sheriff's Department Detective Brad Swain hasn't given up on finding the person responsible for ending Grubb's life.

But after two years - Grubb's body, strangled and clad in just panties, was discovered by a farmer plowing a cornfield north of Bloomington on Oct. 1, 2010 - there has not been much progress in the investigation.

Early on, police suspected three men, one of them Grubb's boyfriend, might have been involved in Grubb's death. Swain called them "persons of interest." When questioned, they admitted being with her the night of Sept. 18, 2010, saying they were making methamphetamine along Bean Blossom Creek, a few hundred yards from where her body was found.

Police arrested the men in September 2011 and put them in jail on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, stemming from the night Grubb went missing, with hopes one might come forward with the truth about what happened to her.

Alvin Fry, 31, bonded out of jail in October 2011; the charge against him was dismissed on May 12 of this year.

Adrian Henley, 45, Grubb's boyfriend at the time of her death, was set to plead guilty during a May 14 court hearing, but the charge against him was dismissed April 30 and he was released from jail. The meth dealing charge against 51-year-old John Sergent was dismissed as well, and he got out of jail June 28.

Swain said he could not say anything more about the men and their possible involvement.
Swain asked that anyone with information about Grubb's death, "and there are people out there who know something," to come forward and call him at 812-349-2727.
