15 years ago yesterday, 41 year old Bernita Sims White of Lansing took her 5 year old daughter to Potter Park Zoo on a Saturday afternoon. While walking through the park, White was fatally shot through the heart with a high powered rifle.

Upon hearing that her daughter had been killed, Bernita’s mother died of a heart attack.

Bernita’s husband Artis White, a MI State Police trooper, was questioned, but never charged in connection with her murder. She had filed for divorce not long before she was shot to death in broad daylight.

At last report, no one has been charged in connection with the slaying of Bernita White.

The 'Justice for Bernita!' Facebook page is dedicated to finding her killer. That link is here.

Lansing City Pulse did a story on her murder five years ago.
