An appeal is being made to help find who killed a young mother in her Powder Springs home a year ago.

Cobb District Attorney Vic Reynolds and Powder Springs police are asking for the public's help in finding who killed Danielle Marshall, 23, found murdered in her Palomino Drive home the evening of Sunday, Jan. 13, last year.

The perpetrator killed Marshall, leaving her infant daughter unattended. Police were called to the home by the child's father, who said no one was answering the door though he could hear the baby crying inside.

Danielle’s mother, Gloria Marshall, said her daughter could always make others laugh. She had recently left her job at a Goodwill store to attend Chattahoochee Tech.

“She was a happy person, and she had the deepest dimples,” Gloria Marshall said in a press release issued Tuesday from the DA. “The greatest thing to her was giving birth to her daughter,” now 20 months old.

Det. Lt. L. Cadwell of the Powder Springs Police Department said Danielle’s killing was the only homicide in the city in 2013. Detectives conducted dozens of interviews and followed various leads, but have not made any arrests.

Anyone with information that may lead to Marshall’s killer is asked to call the Cobb County Cold Case tipline at 770-528-3032, and do not have to leave their name.

Other contacts include Crimestoppers, 404-577-TIPS; Det. Lt. L. Cadwell at 770-257-1394 or lcadwell@cityofpowdersprings.org; and Inv. Nick O’Conor in the DA’s Office at 770-528-3015 or nicholas.o’conor@cobbcounty.org.
