"I miss her. I need my sister."

On Saturday, family and friends and members of the community came out to honor the life of Poole. The Warnersville Historical Beautification Society unveiled a memorial plaque in honor of the young girl, who police say was raped and stabbed to death on July 21, 1990.

"I'm trying to find out who killed my twin sister. I'm here because I want justice," Shanda Poole.

Shanda Poole is Shalonda's twin sister. She was at the ceremony at the Shalonda Poole Park, located at the corner of South Street and Randleman Road.

"I want everyone out there, who is ever listening-- I mean just watch this and people find the killer."

Sunday, July 21, 2013 would mark the 23rd anniversary of the death of the Shalonda. Now, a new memorial plaque stands in Shalonda Poole's honor at the park.

"At least we can say that the Warnersville Community and Greensboro, North Carolina, has not forgotten your sister and will not."

The Warnersville Historical Beautification Society said they have plans to make the park a historical park. They say this will make sure that Shalonda's life and legacy stays alive forever.
