Murder in Kettering: Amber Stanley (Demo)

 Amber Stanley, 17 year old honors student, murdered in her home.  No motive, no suspect.

Amber Stanley, a 17 year old honors student with hopes of a Harvard Medical School education, was murdered in her home.  I don’t know how to convey my sadness.  Neighbors described her as “quiet” and “wonderful.”  Amber was a student at Flowers High School.  On August 22 at 10:23 p.m., police officers responded to the shooting at 100 block of Chartsey Street in Kettering.  It’s reported that the suspect kicked in the front door, asked for Amber by name, went to her room, and shot Amber Stanley multiple times as she lay in her bed listening to music.

ABC7: Gorman Brown, principal of Flowers High School, says Stanley had grades and scores high enough for any college. Stanley was a star in the science magnet program and hoped one day to be a doctor.
Amber’s two sisters and her mom were all in the home at the time of the shooting.  On August 17th police came to the house  to investigate an incident involving the foster daughter and a complaint of mistreatment.  Amber’s mother has been foster-mother to other children over the years.  There is a $25,000 reward for information related to the arrest of the suspect (s)
