In Crime Stoppers, a mother witnessed her daughter's murder. 49-year-old Caffery Woods was shot and killed January 4, 2008, and Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper said finding the killer depends on someone getting the courage to take a stand.

"I'm Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper.

Crime Stoppers offers protection by leaving your name out of it, if you share what you know.

Caffery Woods was sitting in the car with her elderly mother. She was shot and killed, and her mother witnessed the entire thing. We need justice for Woods, so listen closely.

It was January 4, 2008. Police were called to the 7400 block of 2nd Avenue South. When they got there, a blue Montero SUV was parked in the driveway. There were several bullet holes in the vehicle. Caffery Woods was in the driver's seat. Her elderly mother was in the passenger's seat. Both had been shot, but Caffery was dead.

Her mother said that they had just gotten home from the store and were waiting on Caffery's daughter to meet them before going somewhere else. Suddenly someone started shooting. Shell casings from two different guns were recovered from the alley. We think there was more than one shooter. A dark-colored car with large rims and a loud exhaust was seen leaving the area.

So that's it. Do you want to leave it at that or do you want to see the killer held accountable? My officers continue to pound the pavement, and they turned up the information I just shared. Now it's time for you to turn up some of your own.

When you call Crime Stoppers, remember: we won't use caller ID. We won't record the phone call, and Crime Stoppers cannot call you to court to testify.

Don't let Caffery Wood's family miss out on the justice they deserve. You owe it to them to call now.

With Crime Stoppers, I'm Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper."
