LEE COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) A memorial service was held Wednesday for a Breathitt County woman found dead in Lee County.
At the memorial service for Mary Jo Allen, relatives talked about her smile, selflessness, and pride in being a mother.
They also shared their frustration with the investigation into her death. Her body was found over the weekend off Highway 2016. The mother of three had been missing since August 10th when her family says she didn't pick her son up from school.
KSP has not released much information into Allen's death, but her family says something isn't right.
"She loved her kids with all her heart, she loved everybody and her family her heart. It's very tough knowing how she was treated and what was done to her," said Doris DePaolo, Allen's aunt.
Family members said they would not have closure until they know more about the circumstances surrounding her death.
