A beloved mother and her young daughter were found shot in a car off a turnpike in Hollywood, Fla., under mysterious circumstances, and now her family is searching for answers.

Beatrice Saintvil and her 4-year-old daughter, whose name authorities have not shared, were found with gunshot wounds inside a vehicle parked off the Florida Turnpike near Hollywood Boulevard on June 7, according to a press release from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. Investigators believe the shooting occurred about 30 minutes before troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol responded to the scene at 11:50 p.m.

The sheriff’s office said the girl was pronounced dead at the scene while Saintvil died at a local hospital a short time later. Authorities are now investigating the shooting as a double homicide, but have not identified any suspects.

“We want to know who did it,” Saintvil’s sister, Kyanna Librun, told NBC Miami. “We want to see their face and ask them why. Why? A 4-year-old baby girl and 27-year-old mother who never had a problem with anyone, why? We want to know, why?”

Librun described her sister as "a dancer, a party maker" and a "lover," who was often the peacemaker in the family, NBC Miami reported.

According to WSVN, authorities released a 911 that details the mother and daughter’s possible last moments. The outlet reports that a man who called 911 can be heard on the other end of the line seemingly trying to help the pair.

“Get up! Get up! (Unintelligible) gonna be OK,” the caller can be heard saying. It’s unclear if the caller witnessed the shooting.
