Daughter of Murdered Woman Speaks Out

Updated: Friday, August 22 2014, 01:36 AM CDT
DECATUR-- It had been so long since Lindsey Cisco had seen her mother that she couldn't remember her voice. Cisco admits Tracy Trimby was not the best mother, but says she absolutely did not deserve to die.

"I remember everything about that day. I know we sat in Catholic Charities and she had brought me this sweater and it had a teddy bear on it." Lindsey Cisco was 9 years old the last time she saw her birth mother, who had Lindsey when she was 15. Lindsey says they struggled when she was young; she was placed in protective services and eventually adopted at age 7.

"One day I get a phone call from my mom, telling me, 'I'm so sorry, Lindsey, I'm so sorry.' and I don't know what she's saying she's so sorry for." Police identified the remains of Trimby earlier this week. Lindsey found out by watching the news.

It was a painful end to a long search to reconnect with her birth mother. "We did everything. We did online, emails, and missing persons reports. Everything we could." Locating Tracy proved difficult, but Lindsey was able to reconnect with her birth mother's family, bumping into Tracy Trimby's brother by chance.

"He grabbed me and hugged me so tight I don't think I've ever been hugged like that in my life. He hugged me so tight and was like, 'Me and grandpa and grandma have been looking for you for years. We couldn't find you, we couldn't find you."

Records show Trimby had several run-ins with the law over the years, but Lindsey says that doesn't matter now. "I honestly just don't care. The only thing that I want is for the person who murdered my mother to be put into custody. That's what I want." She says she hasn't felt right for several days, struggling with her emotions, and the loss.

"I can't sit here and tell you she was the best mother in the world because she really wasn't. But at the end of the day she's still my mom, and no matter what I love her to death. I'm going to cry."

We spoke with a friend of Lindsey's who helped her search for Trimby over the past few years. She tells us they never stopped looking for Tracy Trimby, and that Lindsey loved her mother unconditionally.
