CLEVELAND -- Loved ones are devestated and scared three weeks since the mysterious murder of Aliza Sherman. 

Her family and friends have reached out to Channel 3 News for help as the days pass and there are no answers. They say they're growing more discouraged and desperate for justice.

Her loving memory in the minds of her four children seems so far from her brutal death.

Sherman was stabbed 11 times in the head, back, neck and right arm outside of her divorce attorney's office in downtown Cleveland on March 24, a Sunday afternoon. 

Cleveland Police say they have made no arrests and have no suspects.

Her mother, Doris Czinn, herself a Holocaust survivor, asked us to share a video plea.

"I am the mother of Aliza Sherman," said Czinn in a taped statement. "I want to know what the chief of police and the mayor is doing about finding my daughter's killer. I want an answer."

Cleveland police are saying nothing. On Tuesday, Chief Michael McGrath told us that detectives have nothing new that can be released to the public. 

A spokesperson for the department clarified there was no image of Sherman's killer seen on surveillance video known to have captured the attack.

The investigation is still open. 

Cuyahoga County Crime Stoppers have received only a handful of tips since announcing a $25,000 reward, funded by friends and family.

If you have any information that might be helpful, you can share it anonymously with Crime Stoppers online or by calling 216-252-7463.

Friends say the Cleveland Clinic infertility nurse had no enemies.

Her two-year divorce proceedings were the only struggle in an otherwise happy life. She was killed just two days before the trial was scheduled to begin.

Now her children and close friends tell Channel 3 News they fear for their own safety. They say nothing will help until her killer is caught.
