This Sunday marks 25 years since 10-year-old Holly Piirainen was abducted in a quiet Sturbridge road.
Weeks later, Holly's body was found about five miles away, in Brimfield.
The Piirainen family, 25 years later, is still searching for answers and seeking justice.
"It was so surreal when it happened, I can't understand it, [how] someone could do that to an innocent child," said Carla Piirainen, Holly's aunt.
Carla says she and her family have never stopped looking for Holly's killer ever since she disappeared on Aug 5, 1993.
Holly and her then five-year-old brother had stopped on the corner of South Shore and Allen roads to look at newborn puppies when all of a sudden Holly was gone.
The only thing found at the scene was one of Holly's sneakers. More than two months later, hunters found her body in the woods of Brimfield near Five Bridge Road.
Holly's killer has never been found.
