UPDATE: Friends and family remember homicide victim Julia Majette

Posted: Updated: Jun 12, 2014 05:37 PM
MADISON (WKOW) -- Friends and family of a 25-year old Madison woman killed exactly one year ago remembered her Thursday night.

Julia Majette was shot and killed in her duplex on Madison's east side. Her husband was also shot but survived, and two of Majette's three young children were present during the shootings.

The case remains unsolved.

"At this point the case has gone cold," said Lt. Dan Olivas. "We don't really have any leads to act on at this point in time."

Majette's family and friends remembered her Thursday as a strong woman with a great smile and lit candles in her honor.

Her best friend, Kandis Janay Woods, said Majette was known as "Sweet P" because of the shape her cheeks would make when she would smile.
At the shelter at Reindahl Park, where Thursday's memorial was held, Majette's three young kids wrote "We Love You Sweet P" in chalk on the sidewalk.

Karen Andro, a friend of Majette's mother Tracey, said she hopes the vigil will lead someone with information about the crime to come forward.
"We do never know if a crime can be resolved but we know we can try," she said.

"When a family knows that efforts are being made it is a very small comfort," Andro said.

"We believe there are people out in the community who have information about the homicide that could help bring some measure of justice for Julia," Olivas said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014.
