“Sure am gonna miss him. We would always talk when I went in there. Such a great guy,” said Madison’s mother, Erin Hannell.

Hannell says Madison knew how much she adored Briggs, and wanted to help raise money for his family with a lemonade stand. Madison ended up bringing in $120.50 from the lemonade stand.

“I told her [Madison] Harry was definitely smiling when she told me that she wanted to do this for his family,” said Hannell.

Police are still searching for the suspect in this case. The owners of the station are offering $10,000 for any information leading to an arrest.

Anyone with information is urged to call Detective Doug Cook at 327-3960 or 327-3475.

The suspect is described as a black male, in his late teens to early 20s, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 foot tall, 180 pounds to 200 pounds, light skinned, with earrings in both ears. Police say the suspect was wearing a black and red Miami Heat ball cap, black bandana over his face, gray hooded sweatshirt, black pants and black and white sneakers.
