Desiree Gibbon, 26, of Queens, New York was found slain on a roadside in Jamaica in November 2017. The aspiring model was on the island nation looking for work.

Authorities in Jamaica have still not made an arrest in the slaying of a 26-year-old Queens, New York model who was visiting the island nation looking for work.

Aspiring model Desiree Gibbon’s body was found with her throat slashed and her wrists bruised, according to law enforcement.

The victim's body was found November 26, 2017 on a roadside in St. James Parish, Jamaica.

The sight of her daughter devastated her mother, who has pleaded with authorities to find the suspect(s). She refused to believe that the mangled corpse was actually her child.

“That’s not my daughter!” she reportedly screamed at a funeral home. “That’s not my daughter!”

“Why would they kill her like that?” Andrea Cali-Gibbon told the New York Daily News. “Why not ask for a ransom? Why kill her so brutally?”

My heart is truly broken!!! I'm asking you all to please help me and my sister at this very difficult and heartbreaking time. My niece was brutally murdered in Jamaica and we need to get her home as soon as possible.  Peggy Brunner will be collecting the  funds and distributing the funds to Andrea Gibbon, Desiree’s mother via bank check from Chase Bank.
