Family, friends of Sheena Morris march at Bradenton Beach City Hall

Family and friends of Sheena Morris were marching Thursday in front of the Bradenton Beach City Hall.

Morris' body was found hanging in a shower Jan. 1, 2009, at a Bradenton Beach hotel. Bradenton Beach police ruled the death a suicide.

Ever since, her mother, Kelly Osborn, has been researching and working with other forensic investigators to prove her daughter was killed by someone else.

A special Florida Department of Law Enforcement panel is currently reviewing the case.

Osborn will address Bradenton Beach Mayor John Shaughnessy and the City Commission during a meeting at 1 p.m.

This comes a few weeks after Justice For Sheena marches were done in Tampa and New York.

On. Aug. 7 the FBI sent a letter to Bradenton Beach Police Chief Sam Speciale, which said the FBI cannot offer investigative assistance in the case because it is "lacking a federal nexus or statutory authority."

Speciale has said he believes his detectives carried out a proper investigation.
