    A 14-year-old girl beaten, stabbed body was found two years ago today.

    On Dec. 31, 2007, at about 7:20 p.m., a homeless man discovered Ahlyja Pinson in an abandoned house in the 2900 block of E Street in Golden Hill. The girl appeared top be injured and unconscious. The man left the house and borrowed a cell phone to call police, who arrived a short time later and found Pinson dead inside the house.

    At the time of her killing, police said the house was a haven for transients and drug dealers.

    Pinson's mother had reported her daughter missing after she discovered she wasn't at at a relative's house as she had previously thought.

    "I'm asking everyone to help me find whoever did this to my child," Adriana Pinson, the teen's mother, said shortly after the killing.

    Ahlyja had moved back to San Diego from Oklahoma a short time prior to the killing.

    Two arrests were made in the case, but nobody has been prosecuted for Pinson's murder.

    On Thursday, Crime Stoppers announced that it was offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the killer's arrest. Anyone with information about the case can call Crime Stoppers' anonymous tip line at 888-580-8477.
