Officers have not said how Harmon died or why Bowen and Tolliver may have done it.

Police said the home Harmon was found at is sometimes used by people trying to avoid law enforcement.

Harmon’s family spoke with Channel 9 about the heartbreaking case.

“She deserves justice. The family deserves to know what happened. We don’t know anything. We just want answers,” her stepmother, Christi Harmon, said.

Shana Harmon’s family admits she had her demons but said she also loved her two young children.

“If anybody out there knows something, we’re just asking them to come forward and to let us bring our child home and let her rest," her father, Sammy Harmon, said.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 704-878-3406.
