The Potter County Sheriffs Department asks that if you have any information on the death of Alexandria Lilly or any other information pertaining to this case,  please call Amarillo Crime Stoppers at 806-374-4400 or you can submit an anonymous tip online here.

If the death of Lilly turns out to be a homicide this will mark the 26th homicide to date in Amarillo.

Whether this was a homicide or accidental, how do we as a community make a change?  How can we stop unnecessary death?  It seems every time we turn around another death or another crime is happening in our city.  When is enough, enough, when do we take back our communities and stop the death and the crime?

Crime will always occur, but how do we come together and put a stop to the large numbers of crimes we see on a daily basis?

RANKED: America's Top 12 Best-Looking State Trooper Cruisers

Did you know that there is a brotherhood of state troopers called the American Association of State Troopers (AAST)? Their goal: PROTECT. PROVIDE. CONNECTAccording to their website the AAST was formed in 1989 when a "small group of Florida state troopers had the vision to create an association that would unite state troopers across the country and assist them by providing valuable benefits and services."

Each year the AAST releases a calendar of the best looking state trooper cruisers. Ranking is determined by their Facebook followers. It's all for a great cause too. Proceeds benefit the AAST Foundation, which provides higher education scholarships for AAST troopers' children dependents. A noble cause by any measure.
