2021: Year 10 since Candance was murdered.
While 2021 began the same as any other year, Candance's case was once again submitted to the DA's office for "screening" where it remains today.
We have met many awesome people fighting for justice for their loved one throughout the year and pray that we all will find JUSTICE.
The end of 2021 proved to validate everything we believed when Candance was murdered.
Candance knew who murdered her friend Shayna Waller.
Candance's mistake was calling the Killeen Police Department.
We will begin to post blogs about what happened, and what we have discovered.
There are no words that anyone can say to express how horrible and senseless murder is
Candance L Boley knew Shayna Waller, they were friends.
2 months before her murder, Candance told her family and some friends she was
"Working with a detective at KPD" more of this story will be posted in 2022

JULY 11, 2022 WILL BE 11 YEARS SINCE CANDANCE WAS FOUND MURDERED IN HER HOME
JULY 11, 2011
Candance L Boley was found BRUTALLY murdered in her home. This is the photo of the last person Candace was seen alive with. It was taken July 9, 2011 around 2:00pm
this is also when ALL communication with Candance ended.
The original detective REFUSED to go to the gas station where Candance was known to go, this video only exists because a friend of Candance went to the gas station and sat for hours looking at recordings. There was very little Oritz did to solve her murder, even refusing to have a composite done of a person of interest.
When we asked him why he would not have the composite done he said, "Why would I? Then I will have every crazy person in Killeen calling me"
The composite was done weeks later.
That is what we, a grieving family were forced to deal with.
