POMPANO BEACH (CBSMiami) – The grieving family of 30-year-old Cassandra Fair, who was murdered last Friday in Pompano Beach, is praying that her killer is found.
“Cassandra has a beautiful heart, inside and out,” her mother Carlotta Fair tells CBS4.
Surveillance video shows her being pushed or jumping from a Cadillac Escalade on Northwest 18th Drive in Pompano Beach after being shot multiple times.
CBS4 spoke with her distraught mother in Texas.
“She was a loving, caring person,” said Carlotta Fair. “If they knew my daughter, they never would have done this to Cassandra.”
Carlotta Fair says Cassandra had been working as a nanny but last year fell out of contact with her family.
“Cassandra had got around with people not doing the right thing and she has such a good heart, she’s easily caught up in things not right,” said Carlotta.
A woman was driving by when she says saw Cassandra being pushed out of the vehicle. She says the assailant also pushed out Cassandra’s handbag.
“When I saw people giving her CPR I thought she had a chance, but she died,” said the witness.
Witnesses say just before this happened, Cassandra was seen arguing with a man at a nearby corner grocery store.
Broward Sheriff’s deputies did recover a tan Escalade.
“I pray that he’s caught,” said Carlotta. “Because if he knew my daughter, he never would have done something like that.”
