MINNEAPOLIS — For the family of Vanessa Jensen -- returning to where it happened is hard.
"It's tough. Every day," said her mother Rachel Jensen.
It was at a low-traffic industrial intersection in north Minneapolis, Second Street and 22nd Avenue where the 19-year-old was watching a hot-rod takeover event. Gunfire broke out, and she was killed by a stray bullet.
"I hope whoever did it sees Vanessa's face every night when they close their eyes. And know that they're not going to get away with what they did to my family. They took her away from a lot of people that loved her very much," Rachel said.
With the two-year anniversary of her death approaching, Vanessa's parents are still seeking justice and asking others to stop the dangerous sliding and street racing.
"We'd like it to stop," said Vanessa's father, Travis Jensen.
Late Friday night, near the Minneapolis Farmers Market, a firefighter responding to a call reported street racing activity.
"Can you inform MPD that there are 150 to 200 youths racing cars," the firefighter called over the radio.
Minneapolis Police weren't able to make any arrests.
The Minnesota State Patrol has promised to use its helicopter this summer to help police track down and catch street racers.
A city official told KARE 11 that plans are in the works to once again place concrete barriers back on Main Street by the Stone Arch Bridge to crack down on burnouts and other activity in that neighborhood.
But for the Jensen family, Memorial Day weekend will never be the same.
"If she was here today we'd be out on the boat, tubing," Travis said.
They plan to continue bringing attention to what happened to her.
"Please, if someone knows anything, come forward or tell so we can have justice for Vanessa and our family," Rachel said.
