    NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - More than two months have passed since this Samantha Olson's life was taken at a busy intersection in North Little Rock.

    "It's been pretty difficult," Detective Gary Jones explains.

    Jones is the lead investigator of Samantha Olson's case and has spent the past two months trying to solve her murder. He says, "Think about it all the time. You try to leave your cases at work and don't carry them home but with this one I think about it all the time. Thinking about other things I can be doing or working on to help solve this case."

    In August, Samantha Olson was shot while driving through the intersection of McCain Boulevard and John F Kennedy Boulevard in North Little Rock with her infant daughter in the back seat. She later died at the hospital.

    The investigation has been a challenging one for detectives. Jones explains, "I guess the lack of information that we had, suspect information at the beginning of the incident and the lack of physical evidence at the scene."

    Despite that, the investigative team will continue to search for the leads they need. "As long as there's still information coming in, we're going to follow up on any information that we get to try to solve this," Jones says.

    If you have any information regarding the shooting, you are asked to call 501-680-8439.
