An mother of four was on the way to meet her divorce attorney in Cleveland, Ohio. She never made it since someone stabbed her on the street and left her to die.
A witness heard the victim say, “I’m dying.”
Those were some of Aliza Sherman’s last words and they happened a decade ago. Today, police say her murder has become a cold case, though they still hope to make an arrest one day and are offering a record reward.
On March 23, 2013, 53-year-old Sherman was heading to meet with her divorce attorney in downtown Cleveland, according to the Ohio Attorney General’s Office. While outside the building, she was stabbed 11 times and found on the sidewalk.
She tried to speak but could only tell others her life was ending.
Medical personnel arrived and took Sherman to the hospital, where she died from her injuries, according to the attorney general’s office.
Authorities have said a person wearing a hooded sweatshirt was spotted running from the scene.

According to WKYC, compounding the mystery, divorce attorney Gregory Moore set up the meeting. He sent texts before and after the meeting that indicated he was in the office. But investigators later determined he was not there.
He later pleaded guilty to one count of falsifying information to the police, according to WKYC.
Police have not named a suspect or made an arrest in the case. That hasn’t stopped her family from speaking about Sherman or visiting the area she died.
Each year they gather at the site to remember Sherman.
Anyone with information on the county is asked to contact police at (216) 252-7463. A reward of $100,000 is being offered and it is believed to be the largest in Cuyahoga County history.
