GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Twenty three years after a 7-year-old was found raped and murdered in Greensboro, the community is still trying to solve the case.

The city unveiled the Shalonda Poole memorial plaque Saturday in Greensboro.

Poole’s body was found in a wooded area next to Davis Jones Elementary School in 1990.

There is also a park in her honor on the corner of South Street and Randleman Road.

The Warnersville Historical Beautification Society and the Center for Missing Persons were on hand for the event.

"Part of our mission is to preserve, protect and promote the legacy of the Warnersville community and by adopting and beautifying the park, it fits right in with what we do as an organization,” said James Griffin.

Police said they do not have any leads on the Poole case but say they are keeping it an open investigation.
