On the facebook page of Brittany Danielle McGlone you see a vibrant beautiful young woman (pictured) ready for an exciting evening at her high school prom.
A stranger viewing the photos posted by members of her family proudly displayed will see her from the first day she was brought home from the hospital, to every year that followed, marking a journey through the awkward teen years and then, in a blink of an eye, she was gone. Brittany was barely 19-years old, and brutally murdered in [Wood County] Winnsboro, Texas on May 4, 2007.
Brittany was bludgeoned to death in the home. allegedly, of her former boyfriend. You would think that police would already have the person responsible for her murder in custody. But, they do not.
Another holiday is arriving, there are no presents under the tree, no christmas decorations hanging, and with each passing year Brittany's mother's health is in decline. The lights that once burned so brightly in the McGlone home have all but burned out, with the exception of the light on the telephone.
This mother who night after night sits by the phone waiting for it to ring, hoping and praying it is a news reporter or a law enforcement officer informing her that an arrest has been made in her daughter's murder, a suspect is in custody. Sadly, Brittany's mother does hold out much hope that will happen when those in law enforcement have let the case go cold.
Brittany's mother has just one wish this year for Christmas, that someone, anyone with information on her daughter's murder step foward and contact the authorities.
That is her only wish.
If you have any information on this case please contact the Wood County Sheriff's Department, they can be reached at (903) 763-2201.
